Attention parents who use baby powder on their little one's bums and other deliciously cute little parts!

Jessica Alba's Honest Company, which is in the midst of a lawsuit claiming the brand falsely labeled its organic baby formula, has found itself in the hot seat again. The natural baby brand is now issuing a voluntary recall of its organic baby powder due to concerns over eye and skin infections.

Fox News reports The Honest Company recently tested the powder and determined it may be contaminated with microorganisms that have the potential to cause infection.

The powder is sold in 4-ounce containers and bears the UPC #817810014529. Check your changing tables, and if you purchased the recalled powder, you are instructed to return it for a full refund: call 1-888-688-8653 or email support@thehonestcompany.com with subject line "Baby Powder."

The company says the recall is being done "out of an abundance of caution," according to the website.

We're glad to see the company is being proactive in addressing concerns before consumers bring them to its attention, and we hope this recall serves to prevent any infection or injury.
