Babyganics Chamomile Verbena Bubble Bath Recall

April 20, 2022


Babyganics is recalling two lots of 20-ounce bottles of Babyganics® 20oz chamomile verbena bubble bath, due to the presence of the bacterium Pluralibacter gergoviae.

During internal testing related to product shelf life across the Babyganics bubble bath line, it was discovered that two specific lot numbers of this product contained the bacterium. While infants may be more susceptible than adults, Pluralibacter gergoviae does not usually cause healthy individuals to become sick.  However, it may pose a risk of infection to those who are immunocompromised or have broken or irritated skin, such as diaper rash.

The only products affected are Babyganics® 20oz chamomile verbena bubble bath UPC 8 13277 01375 4 with lot codes Y314 and Y315 found at the bottom of the packaging and contained in a white plastic bottle with a green plastic lid.

The products were sold in the last two months only at select retailers in the U.S.

Our testing confirmed that no other Babyganics products contained this bacterium.

If you have any of the products listed below, they should be thrown away or returned to your local Big Y for a full refund. 

The following products are sold at Big Y:

Product Name  UPC Size Lot Codes
Babyganics Chamomile Verbena Bubble Bath
Lot Y314 and Y315

Consumers with questions may contact Babyganics health and safety team 24/7 at 1-833-359-6304.
