Suntegrity Skincare Recalls Sunscreen Foundation Sold Across Illinois Due to Mold Concerns

Sharing is Caring, WeGo!

Last week, Suntegrity Skincare announced a voluntary recall of nine lots of its Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation across multiple shades. This decision follows the discovery of a “higher than acceptable microbiological mold count” in one of the product lots. The United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) advises using Lot 115BU of the sunscreen foundation with “an abundance of caution” while the product undergoes further investigation.

In addition to Lot 115BU, Suntegrity is also recalling lots 107IV, 107NU, 109NU, 117BU, 113SA, 114SA, 106BR, and 101MO. Although these lots have passed safety tests, the company is taking extra precautions to ensure consumer safety.

The recall affects the following shades of the Suntegrity Impeccable Skin Sunscreen Foundation: Ivory, Nude, Buff, Sand, Bronze, and Mocha. Consumers can identify the recalled products by the following UPC codes: 854245006170, 854245006224, 854245006224, 854245006187, 854245006194, 854245006194, 854245006217, and 854245006446.

To check if their product is affected, consumers should look for the lot number on the back of the 2oz orange tubes. The presence of the mold Aspergillus Sydowii in these products could lead to fungal infections or allergic reactions, particularly in individuals with compromised immune systems who might experience more severe side effects and require medical treatment.

The recalled products were distributed both online and in retail stores across the United States, including Illinois. For more information on the recall, including photos of the affected products and instructions on how to return them for a refund, consumers are encouraged to visit the FDA’s website at fda.gov.
