Cardinal Mouthwash Recall Expanded by Hydrox Labs

Filed May 20th, 2008 amy

Hydrox Labs’ issued a of Cardinal Health labeled alcohol-free mouthwash two weeks ago, affecting alcohol-free mouthwash after the Center for Disease Control confirmed hospital illnesses in one state associated with the use of the affected mouthwash. The mouthwash was tested, and certain samples were found positive for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia). That recall has now been expanded to include lot #26230.

The recalled mouthwash can be identified by medical professionals as Alcohol-Free Mouthwash, Cardinal Health, 4 oz., Cardinal Label Reorder Number AG-210, Lot Number 26230. Consumers may identify the recalled mouthwash found in Personal Hygiene Hospital Admission Kits. Patients who received Cardinal Health labeled alcohol-free mouthwash from their healthcare providers are being advised to compare the Cardinal Health reorder number on the upper left corner of the product label with the recalled reorder number above, then check to see if the lot number at the bottom of the label matches the recalled lot number. Customers who have Cardinal Health labeled alcohol free mouthwash being recalled should stop using the product and contact Cardinal Health at the number above for instructions.

B. cepacia poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems such as weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis (CF) or on mechanical ventilators, may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia. B. cepacia is a known cause of infections in hospitalized patients. B. cepacia bacteria are often resistant to common antibiotics. The effects of B. cepacia on people vary widely, ranging from no symptoms at all, to serious respiratory infections, especially in patients with CF.
