These products contain the substance methyl salicylate, which according to the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA), must be in child-resistant packaging. Because these oils aren’t packaged safely, they pose a risk of poisoning if your children swallow the contents.

Consumers should immediately stop using these oils, store the products in a safe location out of reach of children, and contact Plant Guru for a full refund for the roll-on products and a free child-resistant replacement cap for the bottles. All known purchasers are being contacted directly.
