A Laundress recall has been issued that includes a grand total of eight million products. The products included in the recall might possibly contain a variety of bacteria that are often found in water and soil. Generally speaking, people without a compromised immune system will not be affected; however, those with underlying issues and compromised immune systems are more easily affected.
The announcement regarding the Laundress recall was announced on the first of this month. The company has included products manufactured from January 2021 until September 2022 in the recall. This recall is quite extensive and consists of a staggering number of products.
If you have one of the products included in the Laundress recall in your home, it is best to throw it out. The company is suggesting tightening the product’s lid and throwing it right in the trash. Additionally, the company is advising users not to pour the products out before disposing of the bottle in the trash.
Pouring out one of the products that were part of the Laundress recall and just throwing away the bottle could cause serious problems. This method could present exposure to the bacteria that caused the recall. The bacteria may enter the body in a number of ways.
The bacterias that sparked the Laundress recall could possibly enter the body through the eyes, a skin break, and could also be inhaled. If the bacteria enters the body, one might require medical attention. The bacterias have the potential to cause severe infection.
Those who the infection-causing bacteria would significantly infect include people with compromised immune systems due to a variety of factors. Folks with underlying lung conditions or people with some type of external medical device could be at greater risk if using the products included in the Laundress recall. The company has said that those with a normal functioning immune system should not be at serious risk.
The products from the Laundress recall are sold at several high-end retailers and directly from the company website. Some of the retailers include Saks, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and even Target. The products are also sold at other retailers.
The Laundress recall includes products such as laundry detergent, fabric softener, cleaning products, and more. With such a vast timeline and as many as eight million products affected, it is well worth checking to see if you own some of the products that could potentially expose you or a loved one to serious health issues. There have already been reports of affected parties.
Currently, there are potentially eleven people that may have purchased the product included in the Laundress recall and are facing health issues. The company is now looking into the reported cases to determine if, in fact, their products were the cause of the problems the consumers are facing. This is a serious issue and a reason for great concern.
Cleaning products, such as those included in the Laundress recall, are supposed to protect and aid consumers in cleaning their homes from harmful bacteria, not expose them to them. The company is doing the right thing now in issuing the recall. Customers could receive a refund for products bought from the recall.
