Possible Contamination Leads to Cottonelle Flushable Wipes Recall
After discovering bacterial contamination concerns about its two varieties of wipes, Kimberly-Clark has announced its recall of Cottonelle Flushable Wipes.
This recall includes the Cottonelle Flushable Wipes and Cottonelle and GentlePlus Flushable Wipes.
According to reports, these wipes have been sold throughout the US, Canada, and the Caribbean. Furthermore, the recalled products were manufactured between Feb. 7, 2020, and Sept. 14, 2020.
According to the company, the product could have Pluralibacter gergoviae. This is a naturally occurring bacterium that lives in the environment, as well as the human body.
Although this bacteria doesn’t usually cause serious health risks, people with weak immune systems have a higher chance of infection.
As of this time, the company has received a “low rate of non-serious complaints, such as irritation and minor infection.”
Moreover, the company reiterates that this bacteria is not connected to COVID-19. Thus, consumers aren’t vulnerable to being infected with the virus by using the recalled product.
