Babyganics has issued a voluntary recall of two products due to possible bacterial contamination, according to the company and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 

The San Francisco-based company said it discovered during internal testing that two lots of Babyganics 20 oz. chamomile verbena bubble bath contained the bacterium Pluralibacter gergoviae.

The products were sold over the past two months at select U.S. retailers, the company said in a statement, adding that testing did not show and other products were contaminated. 

The company said the bacterium does not usually make healthy individuals sick, but it may pose a risk of infection to those who are immunocompromised or have irritated skin such as a diaper rash. Infants may be more susceptible than adults.
