The Laundress Recalls Laundry Detergent and Household Cleaning Products Due to Risk of Exposure to Bacteria

The LaundressName of Product: The Laundress laundry and household cleaning products

Hazard: The recalled products can contain bacteria, including Burkholderia cepacia complex, Klebsiella aerogenes and multiple different species of Pseudomonas, many of which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water, and some may also be found in humans. People with weakened immune systems, external medical devices, and underlying lung conditions who are exposed to the bacteria face a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment. The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, or through the eyes or a break in the skin. People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria.

Remedy: Refund

Units: Approximately 8 million. To date, testing has identified bacteria in certain recalled products, including those produced between January 2021 and September 2022.
