According to news sources, a recall has been issued for two batches of Organique Nourishing Night Cream after it was found in a random sample that the product was contaminated with fungus and the staphylococcus aureus bacteria.
The company, Himalaya Nourishing Night Cream, recalled the product in cooperation with the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA conducted the random sample of the product and found the bacteria contamination affecting one batch with a batch number S691001. The company is also recalling batch number S691002 out of an abundance of caution. The batch numbers can be found at the bottom of the bottle, which comes with a distinctive orange cap.
There have been no injuries reported to date.
Consumers with skin wounds or weakened immune systems can be especially infected by the bacteria. Consumers should return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
