If you currently have Cottonelle Wipes in your bathrooms, you might want to check the package dates. Per the company’s website, there has been a recall of some of its products due to bacteria contamination.

Kimberly-Clark has recalled Cottonelle Flushable Wipes and Cottonelle GentlePlus Flushable Wipes manufactured between Feb. 7 and Sept. 14. They explain that those products may contain Pluralibacter gergovaie, a fairly common household microorganism that can cause infections.

In a statement about the recall, the company says, “Individuals who have a weakened immune system, suffer from serious pre-existing conditions, have been treated surgically, or belong to another sensitive group of persons are at particular risk of infection. At this time there is a low rate of non-serious complaints, such as irritation and minor infection, reported for the affected wipes.”

Kimberly-Clark added that the recall has nothing to do with COVID-19.

If you have Cottonelle Wipes and want to check the lot code to see if your product may be contaminated, visit their website.
