Johnson’s Baby Powder Recall

Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. has initiated a voluntary recall of Lot #22318RB of Johnson's Baby Powder, effective immediately.

A U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) test of Johnson's Baby Powder indicated the presence of sub-trace levels of chrysotile asbestos contamination (no greater than 0.00002%) in samples from a single bottle purchased from an online retailer. Despite the low levels reported, as a precautionary measure the company has initiated a voluntary recall of the lot from which the tested sample was taken. This lot was only distributed in the United States and their teams are moving with urgency to remove this lot from circulation.

The following product is being recalled:

Rite Aid Item # Product Name LOT UPC
