has voluntarily recalled one lot (number Z928) of its Seasource Detox Spa Foaming Sea Salt Scrub. The recalled products were manufactured by a third party and distributed nationwide through Arbonne Independent Consultants.
The recall of the Z928 batch was initiated by Arbonne after discovering the pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria. The company says no other lots are affected. Although no illnesses have been reported so far, pseudomonas aeruginosa may cause dermatitis, soft tissue infections, bacteremia, and a variety of system infections, particularly with users who are immunosuppressed. Because the Foaming Sea Salt Scrub is used to exfoliate the skin’s surface, there is a possibility that inadvertent introduction of the tainted product directly into any skin abrasions could result in infection.
Purchasers of the recalled product lot are advised not to use it. Arbonne will, at the purchaser's choice, replace or exchange the product or refund money paid for the recalled product. In order to replace or exchange product or receive a refund, Arbonne is requesting purchasers of the recalled product lot to contact Arbonne at 1-800-ARBONNE between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time weekdays and between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Saturdays.
