Essential oils recalled for not having child-resistant packaging

Recalls And Warnings

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Two types of essential oils are being recalled because their packaging is not child-resistant.

B&B Acquisition is recalling thousands of bottles of Airome “Wintergreen” and “Deep Soothe” essential oils, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The product contains methyl salicylate, which must be in child-resistant packaging as required by law. Since the product is not child-resistant, it poses a poisoning risk if the essential oils are swallowed by young children.

The Deep Soothe essential oils were sold in 0.5-fluid ounce amber glass dropper bottles, while the Wintergreen essential oils were sold in both 0.5- and 0.34-fluid-ounce bottles. All of the products do not have a child-resistant cap and can be easily opened.

The following UPC codes are printed on the bottom of the gift box in which the bottles were sold: 83324503131, 833245034567, 833245035977. The products were sold separately and as part of a 3-pack of essential oils.

No injuries have been reported.

Parents should store the product in a location away from children and contact B&B Acquisition for a free replacement child-resistant cap.
