Procter & Gamble Recalls Mouthwash
July 13, 2011
For immediate release
OTTAWA - Health Canada is advising Canadians that Procter & Gamble is conducting a voluntary recall of "Oral B Anti-Cavity Dental Rinse- Alcohol Free" (NPN 02129930) and "Oral-B Anti-Bacterial with Fluoride - Alcohol Free Daily Use Mouthrinse" (DIN 02130823).
The products are being recalled due to possible microbial contamination. Procter & Gamble is requesting that retailers immediately stop sale of these products and is also advising consumers to discard the affected product and contact them for a refund by calling 1-800-566-7252, Monday to Friday between 9:00a.m. to 5:00p.m.
According to Procter & Gamble, if present, the microbial level poses virtually no risk to healthy people. However, people with severely weakened immune systems, such as those with cystic fibrosis may be more susceptible to adverse health effects. As such, Health Canada reminds Canadians who have concerns about these products to consult with their health care practitioner.
Health Canada is monitoring the recall by Procter & Gamble. Should new additional safety information be identified, Health Canada will provide an update to Canadians.
To report suspected adverse reaction to these or other health products, please contact the Canada Vigilance Program of Health Canada toll-free at 1-866-234-2345, or complete a Canada Vigilance Reporting Form and send to us using one of these methods:
