Eight Varieties of Pine-Sol Recalled After Being Linked to Infection-Causing Bacteria
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced on Tuesday, October 25, that Pine-Sol has issued a recall on eight varieties of its disinfectant cleaning solution as the Clorox product might contain infection-causing bacteria.
Testing identified bacteria in some formulations produced between January 2021 and September 2022. According to the CPSC, this brings the total number of Clorox recalled products during that period to approximately 37 million.
The Pine-Sol bottles of 28, 48, 60, 100, 144, and 175 fluid ounces being recalled have date codes beginning with the prefix A4 followed by a five-digit number under 22249. The original pine-scented Pine-Sol is not included in the recall.
The eight varieties recalled are Clorox Professional Pine-Sol Lemon Fresh Cleaners; Pine-Sol Scented Multi-Surface Cleaners in the following scents: Lavender Clean, Sparkling Wave, Lemon Fresh; and Clorox Pro Pine-Sol All Purpose Cleaners in the following scents:
Lavender Clean, Sparkling Wave, Lemon Fresh, Orange Energy.
Consumers are advised to stop using the products immediately. They should take a picture of the 12-digit UPC code and the date code on the bottle and then dispose of the bottle in the regular trash. Those seeking a refund need to contact Pine-Sol who will issue a full refund of the purchase price if the receipt accompanies the picture. If there is no receipt, Clorox will refund the manufacturer’s suggested retail price instead.
