Danish retailer withdraws suspect soap

Denmark's Coop retail chain has decided to remove a popular brand of baby soap manufactured by Natusan from many of its stores because the product contains parabenes, Politiken newspaper reports.

For the time being, Coop is withdrawing the soap only from stores that do not stock alternative brands. See article.
