Kohl’s has recalled two body wash products over concerns they may have been contaminated with bacteria.
Beach Rd Natural’s In-Shower Body Conditioner was recalled due to Pluralibacter gergoviae contamination in affected batches, which may improve over time.
“Additional use of conditioner may introduce other bacteria due to insufficient preservatives in the product,” says Product Safety Australia.
“Conditioner products contaminated with Pluralibacter gergoviae and other bacteria can cause infection and disease, especially in people with weakened immune systems (immunocompromised).
“If the product is part of an affected batch, consumers should immediately stop using the body conditioner and either discard it or return it to the store for a full refund.”
The product was sold in Coles supermarkets across Australia.
The two body conditioners affected are ‘Organic Rosewater’ and ‘Shea & Vanilla’.
The barcode for the “Organic Rosewater” product is 9348918003890 and the barcode for the “Shea & Vanilla” product is 9348918003883.
For customers who purchased conditioner between February 1st and 6th, please check the barcode on the back of the product.
