TORONTO - Health Canada says two children's sunscreens are being recalled due to contamination with a trio of bacteria that can cause serious infections. Badger Baby SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion and Badger Kids SPF 30 Sunscreen Lotion are being recalled in Canada. Additional lots of the product — manufactured by the W.S. Badger Company Inc. — are being recalled in the U.S., which Canadian travellers may have purchased. In an advisory, Health Canada said the microbes can cause pneumonia, meningitis and infections of the blood, bone, urinary tract and gastrointestinal system.
