Mouthwash recalled3rd November 2011
Colgate-Palmolive has withdrawn up to 50,000 bottles of mouthwash from British shelves amid concerns they may be contaminated with bacteria.
The company announced on Wednesday it was withdrawing its medicinal mouthwash Periogard from sale in 11 of 12 countries in which it is distributed across Europe and Australasia, following a quality defect. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said the recall came after tests found the bacteria Burkholderia in some samples. It added that there should be no problems for health people, although there could be a small potential risk of infection.
