Clorox Recalls Millions Of Pine-Sol Products Contaminated With Bacteria

The contaminated products were created between January of 2021 through September 2022

Millions of Pine-Sol products have been recalled due to the contamination of a potentially harmful bacteria.

Clorox said nearly 37 million bottles may contain a bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It can harm people with compromised immune systems or people with external medical devices due to possible risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment.

Eight different variations of the products listed have been recalled, Pine-Sol scented multi-surface cleaners, Clorox-Pro Pine-Sol all purpose cleaners, and Clorox Professional Pine-Sol.

The contaminated products were created between January of 2021 through September of this year. Recalled bottles have date codes that start with the prefix “A4.”

Pine-Sol is asking consumers to stop using the contaminated products immediately.

For reimbursement for eligible products, consumers must complete the information on the Pin-Sol Recall Form. It requires users to send a picture of the UPC on the back of the bottle as well as provide a date code on the online form to get refunded.

After including the information necessary to obtain a refund, then consumers can safely dispose of the impacted product with their household garbage.

Note: The Original Pine-Sol Multi-Surface Cleaner, is NOT included in this recall.
