Sargent Art Recalls Craft Paints Due to Risk of Exposure to Bacteria

It’s time to check your supply of craft paints. About 2.8 million units of Sargent Art craft paints have been recalled because they may contain harmful bacteria. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), exposure to certain bacteria can have adverse health effects in immunocompromised individuals, posing a risk of serious illness including a bacterial infection. Consumers with healthy immune systems are not generally affected by the bacteria.

The recall affects involves 13 types of arts and crafts tempera and finger paints sold nationwide at Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com and at the company’s website. For a full list of affected paints, click here. For more information on how to receive a refund click here.
