NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — 25,000 essential oils sold on Amazon are now under a recall alert.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall for the following Plant Guru essential oils due to its failure of meeting child-resistant packaging: Wintergreen Essential Oil, Birch Essential Oil, Headache Relief Essential Oil Blend, Headache Relief Roll-On Essential Oil Blend, and Deep Muscle Essential Oil Blend.
As required by the Poison Prevent Packaging Act, the oils, which contain methyl salicylate, must be in child-resistant packaging. Otherwise, they pose the risk of poisoning if swallowed by young children. No injuries have been reported at this time.
The recall involves Plant Guru Wintergreen and Birch essential oils, and essential oil blends Headache Relief and Deep Muscle in amber glass bottles with thread caps in sizes 2 oz., 4 oz., 5 mL, 10 mL, and 30 mL. The Headache Relief Roll-On is held in a 10 mL blue bottle with a continuous thread closure and rollerball. The Plant Guru logo, the product name, “100% Pure Essential Oil,” and the volume are all shown on the front label.
The essential oils were sold on Amazon, eBay, and The Plant Guru’s websites from March 2018 through February 2021 for between $6 and $20.
The CPSC urges anyone with the essential oils to immediately stop using them, store them in a safe location away from children and call The Plant Guru for a full refund for the roll-on products and a free child-resistant replacement cap for the bottles.
