WASHINGTON (WHTM) – More than 20,000 bottles of Dr. Brown’s Natural bottle and dish soap have been recalled because it may contain harmful bacteria.
Exposure to bacteria poses a risk of respiratory and other infections in people with compromised immune systems.
Bottles and dishes cleaned with the recalled soap should be boiled or sanitized in the dishwasher, the safety commission said.
The recalled soap was sold separately and with Dr. Brown’s bottle brush as a bottle cleaning kit. The soap bottles were sold in two sizes: a clear plastic 16-ounce bottle with a pump and a 4-ounce clear squeeze bottle.
The products were sold at Babies R’ Us and other retailers from September 2016 to June 2017 for between $3 and $7.
