[ARCHIVED] Voluntary Recall of Select Fabuloso® Products Made in the United States

On February 8, 2023 Fabuloso® started to voluntarily recall some of their Multi-Purpose Cleaners made in the United States because a preservative was not added at the intended levels during manufacturing. With inadequate preservative, there is a risk of bacteria growth in the recalled products. Therefore, the recalled products can contain Pseudomonas species bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas fluorescens, which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water. People with weakened immune systems, external medical devices, or 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, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin. People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria.  

The recall, conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, encompasses 4.9 million bottles produced from December 14, 2022 through January 23, 2023, when the manufacturing issue was corrected.  Some 3.9 million of these bottles -- or about 80 percent -- were never released for sale.  Please click here to see the recalled product list and review the instructions to seek reimbursement.

Additionally, Fabuloso® Antibacterial multi-purpose cleaning products and select other variants of Fabuloso® multi-purpose cleaning products are not included in this recall.
