Jergens moisturizer recalled for bacteria risk
(CNN) – A popular skin moisturizer is being recalled because it may contain a harmful bacteria.
The FDA is asking consumers to check their 3 oz. and 10 oz. bottles of Jergens Ultra Healing moisturizer.
It’s possible the bottles are contaminated with a bacteria called pluralibacter that could cause infections in people with weakened immune systems.
The Jergens products that are part of the recall have a lot code on the back or bottom of the bottle that starts with the letters “z-u.”
Manufacturer Kao USA is working to remove the product from warehouses and asking retailers to pull the product from shelves.
Anyone looking for more information on the recall or a refund should call toll-free 1-800-742-8798.
