Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain bottles of Wintergreen Essential Oil products, as follows:

  • This recall includes all 2-, 4-, 8-, and 16-fluid-ounce amber-colored glass bottles of Sun Organic branded Oils Wintergreen sold prior to April 12, 2019.  The label on each bottle displays the Sun Essential Oils logo, an image of an American Wintergreen plant, is marked with “Wintergreen” and lists the size of the individual container.
Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, this recall was initiated because the product contains the drug Methyl Salicylate, a substance that must be sold and stored in child resistant packaging as required by the US Poison Prevention Packaging Act (“PPPA”). The packaging of the recalled Wintergreen Essential Oils is not child resistant, posing a poisoning risk if the contents are swallowed by young children.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Sun Organic branded Wintergreen Essential Oils please do not use them. Instead, immediately store the product in a safe location out of the reach of children and contact B&B Acquisition for a free replacement child-resistant cap.
