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.
