Below is the official statement of Procter and Gamble with regards to their Oral B mouthwash products which includes Oral B Tooth and Gum Care Alcohol Free Mouth Rinse (500 ml, 350 ml and 60 ml).
The voluntary recall is a precautionary step after detecting out-of specification microbial levels in some products produced at the said manufacturing site in Columbia,” the Department of Health-Food and Drug Administration said in an advisory.
P&G said the microbial level found poses no risk to healthy people but those with severely weakened immune system such as those with cystic fibrosis may be susceptible to adverse health effects.
All consumers who may have purchased the said products are advised not to use it.
The public may call Oral B Customer Service numbers 1-800-1-888-8008 (toll free) or 894-3955 for more information or the FDA hotline at 807-8275.
