About 37 million bottles of Pine-Sol products have been recalled because they may contain potentially harmful bacteria.

Clorox said some of the affected Pine-Sol products may contain a bacterium called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which may harm people with weakened immune systems or people wearing external medical devices because they pose « a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment, » according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Eight different versions of Pine-Sol have been recalled, including Pine-Sol Scented Multi-Surface Cleaners (Clean Lavender, Sparkling Wave, and Fresh Lemon Scents), CloroxPro Pine-Sol All Purpose Cleaners (Clean Lavender, Sparkling Wave, Fresh and Energetic Orange Scents) and Clorox Professional Pine-Sol Lemon Fresh Cleanser.

CPSC says no injuries were reported.

The affected Pine-Sol products were manufactured between January 2021 and September 2022. The products described were manufactured at Clorox’s Forest Park, Georgia facility. They were sold on Amazon and several national retailers such as Walmart, Target, Sam’s Club, Kroger and Dollar Tree.

The recalled bottles have date codes beginning with the prefix « A4 » followed by a five-digit number below 22249. The products are sold in bottles of various ounces, ranging from 28 to 175 fluid ounces.

If anyone has a recalled Pine-Sol bottle, the agency says to throw it away and contact Pine-Sol for a refund. A special website has been set up for refunds.
