Each day Media Bias Fact Check selects and publishes fact checks from around the world. We only utilize fact-checkers that are either a signatory of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) or have been verified as credible by MBFC. Further, we review each fact check for accuracy before publishing. We fact-check the fact-checkers and let you know their bias. When appropriate we explain the rating and/or offer our own rating if we disagree with the fact-checker. (D. Van Zandt)

|FALSE||Claim via Social Media: Bath and Body Works products are not recommended during pregnancy because they are suspected of “damaging fertility or the unborn child.”
PolitiFact rating: False (A Bath & Body Works safety data sheet includes warnings about skin irritation, infertility and organ damage. These disclosures aren’t new or limited to Bath & Body Works. Home fragrance companies are required to post these notices on their websites. The disclosures are meant for manufacturers and emergency workers — not consumers.)
Social media posts misrepresent safety of Bath & Body Works products during pregnancy
