Additional information:

Among the 40 recalls the European Union has announced in this first report of January 2017, the following notification was made:

The Original Vicco Vajradanti Herbal Toothpaste, sold with a barcode number of 8901288012001, a batch number of D41200691, a manufacturing code of 12/2014 and a best-before date of 11/2017. The type of hazard presented is bacterial infection caused by a higher-than-allowed measurement of Aerobic Mesophilic Bacteria in the toothpaste, specifically measured at values up to 187500 cfu/g). In addition, both Mould and Yeast have been detected (measured at values of 3000 cfu/g). The result of this contamination is an increased risk of contracting infections because these substances may come in contact with the mouth, hands and/or eyes.

The product, therefore, does not comply with the requirements of the European Cosmetic Product Regulation and such, has been ordered recalled from end users and withdrawn from the marketplace.
