Florida is among nine states listed in a Johnson & Johnson recall of thousands of tubes of its Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) sampled a batch of the product and found excessive levels of a naturally-occurring, but antibiotic-resistant, bacteria identified as coagulase-negative Staphylococci. The bacteria can lead to health problems with the central nervous system or lead to urinary tract infections.
Around 2,200 bottles of the lotion - with lot number 0161LK - have now been recalled from shops across Southern states, including Florida, Georgia and Alabama.
