Two lot codes have been added to the 3 oz size section (“ZU722861” and “ZU722871”) of the previously announced Jergens® recall

Kao USA Inc. is asking consumers to check their Jergens® Ultra Healing Moisturizer 3 oz and 10 oz products to determine if it is part of a voluntary recall of the product.

Select units of Jergens® Ultra Healing Moisturizer could show the presence of Pluralibacter gergoviae, a bacterium which typically poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems such as weakened immune systems may be more susceptible to infections. Kao USA is urging consumers to discontinue use of the recalled lotion specified below as a precautionary measure.

Further investigation to determine the scope of the issue is still ongoing. However, Kao USA Inc. promptly took the precautionary step of issuing a voluntary recall of the affected product by removing the product in question from warehouses, working with retailers to ensure the product is removed from store shelves, and proactively notifying consumers. 

Kao USA cares about consumer safety and is committed to manufacturing products that not only meet, but exceed, the highest industry standards.

The amount of recalled product is limited to two sizes offered for Jergens® Ultra Healing Moisturizer.

Only specific lots of the 3 oz and 10 oz sizes are affected.

  • Jergens® Ultra Healing Moisturizer, manufactured between October 1, 2021 and October 18, 2021, could be impacted.
