Another day, another recall. Here's a heads-up about a recent recall that might affect some of you in the Evansville, Indiana area - Especially if you shop at Fresh Thyme Market.

Peroxide Mouthwash - Poisoning Risk

In a release from the Consumer Product Safety Commission, The Nutraceutical Corporation has recalled all lots of their Heritage Store Hydrogen Peroxide Mouthwash in Wintermint and Eucalyptus Mint flavors. Here's the deal: the mouthwash contains ethanol, which requires special child-resistant packaging by law. Unfortunately, the bottles used for this product don't have this safety feature. This means there's a risk of poisoning if a young child swallows the mouthwash.
