PLEASANT GROVE, Utah – A Utah-based multi-level marketing company is recalling more than 1 million bottles containing three of its essential oils because the products are not child-resistant and could cause poisoning.

According to the Commission, the Poison Control Packaging Act stipulates that all products containing methyl salicylate must be packaged in child-resistant packaging. The affected products pose a risk of poisoning if the contents of the bottle are applied to the skin or swallowed by children.
So far, no injuries related to the recall have been reported, the CPSC confirmed.
Consumers are advised to keep affected products in a safe place out of the reach of children and to contact dōTERRA for a free replacement of similar value.
