LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Clorox recalled over 37 million Pine-Sol cleaning products on Tuesday.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recalled products may contain a bacteria called Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which is typically found in soil and water.

If exposed to the bacteria, those with weakened immune systems may be at risk for serious infection, the commission said.  There have been no reported injuries or illnesses relating to the recall.

Recalled products include those produced between Jan. 2021 and Sept. 2022.

All recalled products:

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® Professional™ Pine-Sol® Lemon Fresh Cleaners.

Recalled products have date codes printed on the bottle beginning with “A4” followed by a five-digit number less than 22249.  The recall includes bottles of 28, 48, 60, 100, 144, and 175 fluid ounces.

In an abundance of caution, Clorox is recalling all of the above-described products manufactured at its Forest Park, Georgia facility through September 2022.

Original Pine-Sol® (Pine scent) is not included in this recall.

Consumers should immediately stop using recalled products.  They are asked to take pictures of the 12-digit UPC code and the date code printed on the bottle.  The bottle, with the product inside, should be disposed of with household trash.
