Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain Organic Aromas Wintergreen Essential Oil products sold and delivered in amber glass bottles with white or black caps, as follows:

  • The Organic Aromas Wintergreen Essential Oil products are packaged in 10 mL, 30 mL and 50 mL bottle sizes with the firm name, “Organic Aromas,” the firm’s logo, and the phrase, “Wintergreen Pure Essential Oil”, along with the volume amounts are printed on the white label. A 2 mL size bottle, sold as part of a set of sample sizes of assorted Essential Oils and called the “Discovery Collection”, is also subject to this recall. The word, “WNTRGRN” can be found printed on a green label on the cap with the firm’s logo on the side of the package.

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

==> No barcodes, UPCs, NDCs, 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 Organic Aromas Wintergreen Essential Oil, please do not use them. Instead, immediately store the product in a safe location out of the reach of children and contact Organic Aromas 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.
