The problem, said the agency in a press release about the recall, is that the products are not packaged in child resistant packaging, as is required by US law. The Poison Prevention Packaging Act, or PPPA, mandates that essential oils containing methyl salicylate must be in such packaging.

The recall covers 10 milliliter bottles, 30 milliliter bottles, and 100 milliliter bottles of:

  • Wintergreen
  • Organic Wintergreen
  • Muscle Aid Synergy Blend
  • Tingly Mint Synergy Blend
  • Vein Aid Synergy Blend
If you have a product covered by this recall you are instructed to store it in a safe location, out of the reach of children, and then contact the company for free replacement cap. At the time of the recall there had been no reported injuries or poisonings.
