Clorox recalls its cleaners because they may contain bacteria that can cause serious illness

If you’re thinking of mopping your kitchen with a bottle of Pine-Sol all-purpose cleaner under the sink – stop. It may contain bacteria that can cause serious illness in people with compromised immune systems.

The Clorox Co said on Tuesday it was recalling scented multi-surface cleaners and multi-purpose cleaners. The recall does not include its iconic original fragrance Pine-Sol, which is the only product registered as a disinfectant.

The products recalled by the Oakland, California-based company also include scented CloroxPro Pine-Sol Multi-Purpose Cleaner and Clorox Professional Pine-Sol Fresh Lemon Cleaner, US Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.

The products “may contain bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an environmental organism found widely in soil and water,” the commission said.

“Bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes or through a break in the skin. The commission said people with healthy immune systems are generally not affected by the bacteria.

The commission said microbial testing was identified in the recalled products manufactured between January 2021 and September 2022. It said consumers should take a picture of the 12-digit UPC code and date code, throw the product in its container in the trash and contact the company for a refund.
