Wintergreen Essential Oil by RESURRECTIONbeauty Fails to Meet Child Packaging Requirements, Poisoning Risk
The wintergreen essential oil by RESURRECTIONbeauty contains methyl salicylate, which should be in child-resistant packaging. This is required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). This product poses a poison risk as it is not child-resistant.
Consumers are being urged to contact RESURRECTIONbeauty to obtain a free replacement cap that is child-resistant.
IKEA Infant Bibs Recalled Due to Choking Hazard
These bibs from IKEA have snaps on the back that can become detached, which poses a choking risk to young children. Consumers are being asked to immediately stop using these bibs and to return them to IKEA for a full refund. It doesn’t have to be the same IKEA that you originally purchased the bibs from.
