Johnson & Johnson recalling its Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion from stores in nine states, says product may be tainted with excess bacteria

NEW BRUNSWICK, New Jersey , January 30, 2012 () – Johnson & Johnson is recalling baby lotion that may have excess bacteria from stores in nine states.

The precautionary recall covers one lot of Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion, with lot number 0161LK. It went to stores in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.

The company says Food and Drug Administration testing of a product sample showed the lot exceeded specifications for bacteria, but extensive testing by an independent laboratory afterward did not show that.

Consumers are not affected, but may call J&J's consumer call center at 1-877-298-2525 on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST with questions. J&J says injuries are unlikely. None have been reported.

J&J has had about 30 recalls since 2009.
