WASHINGTON (KKTV) - Two essential oils have been recalled for not meeting Poison Prevention Packaging Act standards.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the bottles are not child-proof, and therefore pose a risk of young children drinking the oils and possibly being poisoned.

The two oils in question are part of Artizen's Oils' 100 percent Pure & Natural Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils line. The company recalled all 1- and 2-ounce clear glass bottles of wintergreen and birch essential oils purchased prior to April 15, 2019. The oils were sold on eBay.com, Amazon.com and Walmart.com from June 2017 through April 2019.

Customers are advised to put the oils out of reach of children and contact Artizen Oils for a free replacement child-resistant cap.

Artizen Oils can be reached Monday-Friday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. MST at 800-986-9413.
No injuries or illnesses have been reported at this time.
