FabuloNOso: One of El Paso’s Favorite Cleaning Products Recalled
Is there a household in El Paso that doesn't have AT LEAST one bottle of Fabuloso?! It's been a staple at our home since moving in. Cheap, pick it up at the dollar store and use it for pretty much anything.
Bad news for us. Fabuloso has recalled almost 5 million of its products due to bacteria that is REAL bad for people with underlying health conditions.
According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the products that were of concern were produced from Dec. 14, 2022, through Jan. 23, 2023. The company issued a voluntary recall and issued a statement saying,
With inadequate preservative, there is a risk of bacteria growth in the recalled products. The recalled products can contain Pseudomonas species bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas fluorescens, which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water.
The company says the issue has since been corrected.
People who are most at risk include those with weakened immune systems, external medical devices, or underlying lung conditions. The bacteria can “enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin," according to the CPSC.
The bottles in question were sold on Amazon and in Dollar General, Home Depot, Sam’s Club, and Walmart. Around 3.9 million bottles were never released for sale, the company mentioned. But if you have purchased any Fabuloso since December 14th, toss 'em.
