Over the past few days, reports have surfaced on various government web sites warning consumers of an international recall of Oral-B Mouthwash products. The affected products were manufactured by Laboratorios Rety de Colombia S.A. Oral-B Mouthwash products manufactured in other locations are not affected by the recall

Procter & Gamble initiated the recall after a bacterial contaminant – Burkholderia anthina – was detected in some product samples from the Colombian manufacturing facility. While B. anthina is unlikely to cause illness in healthy individuals, it could be harmful to consumers with weakened immune systems.
