A news story posted on ajc.com reports that Scent Theory’s foaming hand soap sold at Walmart is being recalled due to Burkholderia cepacia contamination. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Burkholderia cepacia is a bacteria that presents minor medical risks to healthy people. However, Burkholderia cepacia could cause lung disease or infection in people with weakened immune systems.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration alerted the public to stop using Scent Theory’s foaming hand soap and announced that over 600,000 bottles of the soap had been recalled.
Scent Theory, is a cosmetics company based in New York, has issued a voluntarily recalled of approximately 636,000 bottles of its foaming hand soap because of a Burkholderia cepacia contamination potential. Scent Theory is voluntarily recalling its 11-ounce bottles of its Vanilla Coconut, Lemon Citrus, Fresh Lavender, and Eucalyptus Mint varieties, which are made with essential oils.
Scent Theory has failed to list the recall information on its website and social media pages, which seems to contradict the company’s mission of providing a “luxurious yet affordable personal care collection.” Purchasers should discontinue the use of the soap and throw the bottle of soap in the garbage. There are no specific instructions provided by FDA or the Scent Theory website concerning what to do with the recall products.
