Natural Organics Inc. is voluntarily recalling its Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Mouthwash after they were notified by its contract manufacturer Integria Healthcare (Australia) Pty Ltd. that one lot of Tea Tree Mouthwash failed microbial contamination testing.
This bacterial contaminant, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, could pose a health risk to consumers. While a health hazard is unlikely, this recall has been initiated because Pseudomonas can cause serious illness in immune compromised individuals. For more information on Pseudomonas, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website.
The mouthwash was distributed nationwide to retail stores and to Trinidad and the Philippines.
The mouthwash is packaged in clear plastic bottles with green and white labeling bearing the following product code and lot number printed on the back panel of the product label: Thursday Plantation, Tea Tree Mouthwash, 8.45 fl oz./ 250mL ℮, Product No. 6710, Lot 9810
