Sunscreen lotion for babies and kids is being recalled because is could contain disease-causing bacteria and fungi.

The W.S. Badger Co. Inc. says it's voluntarily recalling all lots of its 4-ounce SPF 30 Baby Sunscreen Lotion and one lot of its 4-ounce SPF 30 Kids Sunscreen Lotion (lot # 3164A) due to microbial contamination.

The products were tested and found to be contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Candida parapsilosis and Acremonium fungi.

There haven't been any reports of children getting sick from it.
Both sunscreens are sold in the USA & Canada online and at major retailers as well as independent food co-ops and pharmacies.

This product can be identified by matching the UPC with the Lot code, which can be found on the top front of the tube crimp.
The affected lots include the following:
