Bacteria-Contaminated Acne Cream Lawsuit
National Recall Issued
Acne Cream Found to Contain Bacteria
National Recall IssuedA nationwide recall of all lots of CSI's 1 ounce (28 g) tubes of 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Cream was issued today as the product was found to contain bacteria identified as "Burkholderia Cepacia," formerly known as Pseudomonas Cepacia.
Burkholderia Cepacia refers to a group of bacteria found in soil and water and are often resistant to common antibiotics. While they are typically not a major health risk for healthy individuals, people with weakened immune systems or chronic lung disease, particularly cystic fibrosis (CF), are more susceptible to infection with it, as are people with cuts, scrapes, rashes or other compromised skin conditions.
The products being recalled have the following names: "DG Maximum Strength Acne Medicated Gel" (sold at Dollar General); "Kroger Acne Gel 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Medication" (sold at Kroger); and "Equate: Medicated Acne Gel" (sold at Wal-Mart).
