The recall covers 9 lots of the product. Suntegrity Skincare

Suntegrity Skincare issued a voluntarily recall for the Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation based on its discovery of a higher than acceptable microbiological mold count in some tubes.

Nine lots of the Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation (multiple shades) were found with the higher microbiological mold count (species: Aspergillus Sydowii) in some tubes of Lot 115BU that developed post-release and over time in a recent test. Out of caution while investigating the situation, the company has also recalled these additional lots:107IV, 107NU, 109NU, 117BU, 113SA, 114SA, 106BR, and 101MO even though all original and recent test results received have come back clear.

Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation is labeled to help prevent sunburn and is packaged in 2-oz. orange tubes.

A topical product that is contaminated with Aspergillus Sydowii could cause an allergic skin reaction and related symptoms. It could also cause a primary fungal skin infection if used on open wounds or sunburned skin. If it gets into the eye, an eye infection may occur. A primary skin infection due to Aspergillus species in an immunocompromised individual should be treated medically.

No adverse event reports had been received at the time of the recall.

Suntegrity has notified its distributors, retailers and website customers by email and is arranging for disposal of all recalled products.
