1 month ago source

Recall notice


FURminator deShedding Ultra Premium Dog Conditioner (1 Gallon) has been pulled from the market due to microbial contamination. The recall involves certain product lot codes. The products may contain Pseudomonas aeruginosa, a bacteria found in soil and water. While people with healthy immune systems are usually not affected, those with weakened immune systems, external medical devices, or underlying lung conditions could face a risk of serious infection if exposed to the bacteria. In the United States, the company has received four reports of incidents. The recall is a joint effort with Health Canada, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC), and Spectrum Brands Pet LLC. The Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.

The company reported that approximately 248 units of the affected products were sold in Canada and approximately 90,000 were sold in the United States.
