Certain Fabuloso cleaning products were recalled on Wednesday during a risk of bacterial contamination, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. At the time of the recall, no incidents or injuries had been reported.

The Colgate-Palmolive Company, the maker of the popular brand, recalled about 4.9 million bottles in the United States and about 56,000 in Canada. Fabuloso says about 3.9 million of those bottles have never been released for sale.

The recall includes several types of Fabuloso all-purpose cleaners that were produced from December 14 to January 23 and sold online, including Amazon, and at major retailers such as Dollar General and Walmart.

Consumers should immediately stop using the affected products, which you can find by checking the codes listed in the recall announcement.

To dispose of the product, consumers must keep it in its container and put it in the trash, says the safety commission. They must not empty the bottle before disposing of it.

Colgate-Palmolive noted that “a preservative was not added at the levels intended during manufacture,” which could have allowed the Pseudomonas bacteria to grow.

This bacterium is commonly found in soil and water, and it could cause serious infections in people with weakened immune systems, external medical devices or underlying lung conditions, according to the safety commission.

Colgate-Palmolive says it will offer refunds or replacements to consumers who submit a photo of the product’s UPC and lot codes.
