Consumers are being urged to check their cleaning supplies, specifically those from the Fabuloso brand amid a recall from the Company.
According to the company, nearly 5 million bottles of Fabuloso multipurpose cleaner have been identified as at risk for bacterial growth.
This, the statement revealed, was a result of insufficient levels of preservative being added to the products during manufacturing. The result? Growth of a Pseudomonas species of bacteria, the kind typically found in soil and water.
This bacterium can enter the body through the eyes, skin or respiratory system and threatens complications, putting people with weakened immune systems and underlying lung conditions most at risk.
