#TurksandCaicos, October 29, 2022 – TCI is confirmed to be one of the countries affected by a major Pine Sol recall after an affected bottle ended up in a resident’s kitchen cabinet. It was purchased in Grand Turk.

The discreet bottle of cleaning solution was one of 37 million currently being recalled by Clorox on suspicion of contamination. Magnetic Media has received confirmation that the bottle was purchased from TCI, meaning the contaminated lot is in stock on the islands.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said “testing identified bacteria in some recalled products, including those manufactured between January 2021 and September 2022.”

The bacterium in question: is Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an environmental organism widely distributed in soil and water. It particularly affects people with weakened immune systems or external medical devices. It can cause infections in the blood, lungs (pneumonia) or other parts of the body according to the CDC.

The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes or through a tear in the skin.

Pine Sol products are incredibly popular in the United States and the Caribbean.

The eight affected bottles include Pine-Sol Scented Multi-Surface Cleaners in Lavender Clean, Sparkling Wave and Lemon Fresh scents, CloroxPro Pine-Sol All Purpose Cleaners, in Lavender Clean, Sparkling Wave, Lemon Fresh and Orange Energy scents, and Clorox Pine-Sol Lemon Fresh Professional Cleaners. Original Pine-Sol (Pine Scent) is not included in this recall.

The recalled bottles have date codes beginning with the prefix “A4” followed by a five-digit number less than 22249.

CPSC consumers should take photos of the 12-digit UPC code and date code, dispose of the product in its container with household trash, and contact Pine-Sol for a full refund of the purchase price.
