Some of these bacteria that the products may contain include Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Exposure could cause a serious risk to humans.

Which Pine-Sol products were issued a recall for risk of bacteria exposure?

People who have a weakened immune system or external medical device are at risk. If these people or their medical devices were exposed to pseudomonas aeruginosa, they could suffer a serious infection.

The infection would require medical treatment. Healthy people aren’t normally impacted by the bacteria though, according to My Twin Tiers.

The bacteria can enter the body through inhalation, they eyes, or an opening in the skin.

Testing revealed bacteria in various products with a recall that were produced between January 2021 and September 2022.

37 million products in all have been manufactured at the Forest Park, Georgia facility.
