White & Blue Lion, Inc. of California is recalling all lots of tattoo inks, needles tubes, ink cups and kits, according to the Arkansas Department of Health. The recall is due to harmful bacterial contamination.

ADH said the use of the products may cause a potentially life-threatening bloodstream infection.

Although ADH is not aware of any licensed body art establishments in Arkansas using the products, some unlicensed artists could have purchased and used them.
