Urgent medicine recall: Weleda Baby Teething Powder 60g

Urgent medicine recall: Weleda Baby Teething Powder 60g

PRODUCT: 

Weleda Baby Teething Powder 60g

Product Code: 42TEETH-K Barcode: 9416114001269

REASON:

Weleda Australia have identified that small, threadlike (up to approximately 1cm long x less than 1mm wide), soft, slivers of white plastic could potentially peel off the jar cap of Baby Teething Powder upon first opening. This is due to the tight fit of the cap in the jar.

This presents a potential for physical contamination of the powder with plastic when opening the jar. The health risk associated with this issue is that if a small sliver of plastic was consumed it may constitute a choking hazard. This action is a precautionary measure it was not initiated by any report of patient harm.

Impacted batches have been distributed to consumers, retailers and distributors since 11 October 2018.

This action does not affect any other Weleda products being sold in Australia.
