No illnesses have been reported in association with this recall
HimalayaUSA® announced today it is conducting a voluntary recall of Organique by Himalaya Nourishing Night Cream with batch #S691001 and batch #S691002 effective immediately. This product was distributed nationwide in the U.S. and in Canada. For identification purposes, the product is sold in a cylinder shaped teal bottle with an orange cap. The batch numbers are located on the bottom of the bottle.
The bacteria staphylococcus aureus and fungus were found present in samples of Nourishing Night Cream batch #S691001 and were traced to the bottle’s pump components, which were supplied by a third party manufacturer. These microbes are found in the environment and are frequently seen as normal flora found on skin, though they may become opportunistic in immunocompromised people or if introduced to broken skin. Although no microbes were found in batch #S691002, the same pump components may have been used in its manufacturing and are included in this recall.
This recall is effective only for the batch numbers indicated and not for any other Nourishing Night Cream batch. To date, The Company has received no reports of consumer injury.
Consumers who have purchased Organique by Himalaya Nourishing Night Cream Batch #S691001 or #S691002 are encouraged to return the product to the point of purchase or directly to HimalayaUSA immediately for a refund or replacement. Subsequently, all other Nourishing Night Cream batches have been batch tested and are free from any contamination.
Consumers with questions or concerns about this recall please contact the Company’s Customer Service Team at 800-869-4640 between 6:00AM – 3:00PM Pacific Time.
