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

  • Wintergreen and Birch Essential Oils, and Essential Oil Blends Headache Relief and Deep Muscle packaged in amber glass bottles with continuous thread caps available in sizes 2-ounce, 4-ounce, 5-mL, 10-mL and 30-mL sizes. The Headache Relief Roll-On is in a 10-mL blue bottle with a continuous thread closure and roller ball. The Plant Guru logo, the product name, the phrase, “100% Pure Essential Oil”, and the volume can be found printed on the front label.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the drug’s packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Plant Guru 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 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 Plant Guru branded  Essential Oil products,  please do not use them. Instead, immediately store the product in a safe location out of the reach of children and contact Plant Guru for a full refund for the roll-on products and a free child-resistant replacement cap for the bottles. All known purchasers are being contacted directly.

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