MarcasUSA, LLC Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Pasta De Lassar Andromaco Skin Protectant 25% Zinc Oxide 60g Due to Potential Contamination

 

MarcasUSA, LLC and Industria Farmacéutica Andromaco, S.A. de C.V. is voluntarily recalling four lots of Pasta De Lassar Andromaco Skin Protectant, 25% zinc oxide to the retail level. FDA analysis of this product confirmed that Pasta De Lassar Andromaco is contaminated with high levels of yeast, mold, and bacteria. The specific lot associated to the positive findings was never sold in the US. However, due to the amount and type of contamination the remaining four lots in the US market are being recalled out of an abundance of caution.

Use of the contaminated product could result in an increased risk of infection. To date, MarcasUSA has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
