Better safe than sorry!
Jessica Alba‘s The Honest Company announced on Wednesday that it will be voluntarily recalling the organic baby powder, which first hit stores last April, due to concerns that the product may cause eye and skin infections. Yikes!
In a video posted to the company’s website, co-founder Christopher Gavigan said routine testing revealed possible microorganism contaminations:
“With the full knowledge and under the guidance of the FDA, we’ve decided to voluntarily recall this product out of an abundance of caution.”
“On behalf of my co-founders and everyone here at Honest, I sincerely apologize for this inconvenience. This decision, like all of our decisions, was guided by our ongoing commitment to the health, well-being, and satisfaction of our customers.”

Well, we guess it’s good they were proactive about finding the problem and hopefully solving it.
We just wonder if this will affect that potential billion dollar deal!
