Clorox recalls Pine-Sol products for possible bacteria
Clorox is recalling 37 million Pine-Sol products because they may contain bacteria ,
including pseudomonas aeruginosa, the company said Tuesday.
Why it matters: People with weakened immune systems or external medical devices who are
exposed "face a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment," Clorox said in the recall notice.
– Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an environmental organism found widely in soil and water.
The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin,
according to the recall notice posted on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
– People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria, Clorox said in the notice.
