Saje Natural Wellness has issued a warning to its customers urging them not to use its Splish Splash Gentle Baby Wash in either the 8.5 ounce size or the 1.7 ounce size. The products, said the company in its press release about the recall, may be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is what doctors call an “opportunistic pathogen”; it lives in or on us harmlessly most of the time but can cause life-threatening blood infections in people whose immune systems are weakened. (It is, for example, a leading cause of pneumonia in cystic fibrosis patients.)
Only one lot code of Splish Splash Gentle Baby Wash is covered by this recall but 2 SKUs are affected. Those products are:
- Saje Natural Wellness Splish Splash Gentle Baby Wash, SKU 700552, 8.5 fl. oz. size with lot code 814020
- Saje Natural Wellness Splish Splash Gentle Baby Wash (from the Wee and Well Gentle Baby Care Kit), SKU 700561, 1.7 fl. oz. size with lot code 814020
This recall covers all expiration dates.
Neither Saje nor the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have acknowledged receiving any reports of anyone becoming sickened after being exposed to the product.
