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

  • Simplers Botanicals branded Organic Wintergreen (Gaultheria Fragrantissiam) Essential Oils, sold in 5 mL amber glass bottles with a white continuous thread closure. The blue and white label on the front of the bottle displays the Simplers Botanicals logo, product name and volume while a bar code on the back of the bottle includes the UPC of 617626625472. Products manufactured after January 2019, have a white push and turn closure that is child-resistant and are not included in this recall notification.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the drug’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Simplers Botanicals branded Organic Wintergreen (Gaultheria Fragrantissiam) Essential Oil products can be found on the Web site listed above.

==> No DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

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 reportedly 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 Simplers Botanicals 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 Bulk Apothecary for a full refund.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to handle poisonings.
