Pine-Sol products are recalled by Clorox due to potential germs
As a precaution against bacteria, including pseudomonas aeruginosa, Clorox is recalling 37 million Pine-Sol products, the firm announced on Tuesday.
Why it matters: According to Clorox’s recall notice, exposed individuals who have compromised immune systems or external medical devices “stand a risk of serious infection that may require medical care.”
Threat level: According to Clorox, the recall is being carried out “out of an excess of caution” after tests revealed the presence of germs in some products made between January 2021 and September 2022.
The company reported that at that time, its factory in Forest Park, Georgia, produced about 37 million of the recalled goods.
Yes, although according to Clorox, no incidents of illness or injury have been reported to date.
Customers should cease using the impacted products, which include various smells and sizes, immediately, according to Clorox.
