Frontier Co-op is initiating a voluntary recall for certain Aura Cacia Milk & Oat Bath products.

This recall is the result of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) testing that revealed an elevated microorganism count in Aura Cacia Lavender Milk & Oat Bath.

While cosmetic products are not required to be sterile, an elevated microorganism count indicates that the product could pose a hazard to health.

The recalled items are: 1.75-ounce packet Lavender Milk and Oat Bath, lot number 5289, and UPC 0-51381-90307-7, 9.75-ounce jar Lavender Milk and Oat Bath, lot number 5296, and UPC 0-51381-90317-6, and the 49.6g Lavender Milk and Oat Bath (Canadian Distribution Only), lot number 5281, and UPC 0-51381-30307-5.

The location of the lot number for the 1.75 oz. and 49.6g packets is embossed in the seam on the side of the packet. For the 9.75 oz. jar, the lot number is printed on the back of the label or stickered on the bottom of the jar.

The recalled products were sold online and in stores in all 50 states and in some parts of Canada to distributors, retailers and consumers.

Frontier Co-op is initiating recall notices to our accounts that received any of the above recalled products with instructions for returning or destroying the recalled products and for notifying their customers of the recall.

Please contact Frontier Co-op with any questions or to inquire about replacement or reimbursement at (800) 669-3275.
