Kimberly-Clark has recalled its Cottonelle Flushable Wet Wipes products from stores for the possible presence of the pluralibacter bacteria.
It seems like no product in stores is safe or clean. Before, it was onions. Next, it was fruits. Now, it’s wet wipes. Kimberly-Clark has recalled its Cottonelle Flushable Wipes for bacteria. The bacteria could also infect people.
Bacteria in Wet Wipes
CNN reports that the company has found the pluralibacter bacteria in its wet wipes. According to the report, the bacteria could infect people with weak immune systems. Moreover, bacteria could force companies to recall cosmetics.
Kimberly-Clark did say that the bacteria “rarely” infect healthy persons. However, if your immune system is weak, stay away from these products.
Cottonelle Recall Coverage
The company recalls only those Cottonelle Wipes or GentlePlus products made between February 7 and September 14, 2020. If you have wipes made outside these dates, you’re safe.
Right now, the company says very few customers have complained about the Wipes. These complaints also do not mention bacteria.
How Do I Know My Wet Wipes Are Safe?
Look for the lot number at the bottom of your Wipes box. After that, search for it on Kimberly-Clark’s product recall information page. If the recall affects your Cottonelle products, stop using it right away.
