Consumers should immediately stop using Pine-Sol Scented Multi-Surface Cleaners in Lavender Clean, Sparkling Wave and Lemon Fresh scents [etc.] …Clorox has recalled various types of Pine-Sol cleaners due to a possible risk of bacterial exposure. Recalled products include certain types of Pine-Sol produced between January 2021 and September 2022.
Why It Matters: Some of the recalled Clorox products include certain scented CloroxPro Pine-Sol All Purpose Cleaners and Clorox Professional Pine-Sol Lemon Fresh Cleaners. Clorox said consumers should immediately stop using the products because it may contain bacteria "that could cause serious illness in people with compromised immune systems," CBS News explained.
The recall statement from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said, "The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin," noting that "People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria."
