This voluntary recall has been initiated due to microbial contamination on some of these production batches (lots). The re-tested products were found to be contaminated with low concentrations of Pseudomonas aeruginosa/ fluorescens. While a health hazard is unlikely, we are taking this recall action because Pseudomonas can cause serious illness in immune compromised individuals. We are initiating this voluntary recall of the listed products in an abundance of caution. As these foaming soaps are intended for use on the skin, possible health risks for Pseudomonas skin infection would be accompanied by a rash or skin irritation that may have an exudate (pus). More serious infections may occur in immuno-compromised persons. People experiencing symptoms should seek medical attention. There have been no reports of illness or adverse effects from any users of the products.
We begain shipping this product on November 5, 2012.
Consumers are warned not to use the product even if it does not look or smell spoiled.
Since these products are all manufactured in a similar manner, we are being extra cautious and taking the same voluntary recall actions on ALL the above products.
