4.9 Million Colgate-Palmolive Cleaning Products Recalled
Millions of cleaning products sold at Walmart, Dollar General, and Amazon are being recalled due to bacteria contamination.
The recalled products can contain Pseudomonas species bacteria which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission people with weakened immune systems, external medical devices, or underlying lung conditions who are exposed to the bacteria face a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment.
The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin. People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria.
The Colgate-Palmolive Company recalled about 4.9 million bottles in the U.S. and about 56,000 in Canada.
Fabuloso says about 3.9 million of those bottles were never released for sale.
The recall includes several types of Fabuloso Multi-Purpose Cleaners that were produced from Dec. 14 to Jan. 23 and sold online, including Amazon, and at major retailers such as Dollar General and Walmart.
