Aesop USA of New York is recalling about 176,00 Aesop Post-Poo Drops and Aesop Oil Burner Blends sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The packaging of the recalled products, which contain low-viscosity hydrocarbons, is not child-resistant as required by federal law. This poses a risk of poisoning.

Additionally, the products' labels violate the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA) by omitting the mandatory information on the packaging.

The firm has received three reports of skin irritation/negative skin reactions in the U.S. involving the Oil Burner Blends product, but there have been no reports of medical treatment.

This recall involves Aesop Post-Poo Drops, a bathroom deodorizer in a 100 mL amber glass bottle, with a continuous thread pipette dispenser closure. The bottle has a black and cream label with the brand name Aesop. The UPC number 9319944009200 is located on the rear of the bottle, directly below the ingredients list.

The product was also sold in four versions of the Home Kit: The Protector, The Seasoned Wayfarer, The Melodist, and The Familiar Horizon. The UPC numbers for four versions of the Home Kit are located on the rear of the printed sleeve. Only the Aesop Post-Poo Drops in the kit are included in this recall.

The recall also involves four Aesop Oil Burner Blends -- Anouk, Beatrice, Catherine, and Isabelle -- which are aromatic oil blends intended to be used in an oil burner.

The products include a black and cream label with the brand name Aesop and the blend name. They come in a 25 mL amber glass bottle with a continuous thread closure and flow restrictor insert.

Lists of all the recalled products may be found here.

The Deodorizing Drops and Oil Burner Blends, manufactured in Australia, were sold at Aesop, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and other stores nationwide and online from January 2012, through April 2022, for between $30 and $100.
