Kimberly-Clark recalled some Cottonelle Flushable Wipes due to a risk of bacterial contamination that could lead to infections.

The recalled wipes may contain Pluralibacter gergovaie, which is a common type of household bacteria that can potentially cause infections, especially in people with vulnerable immune systems.

Kimberly-Clark said “there is a low rate of non-serious complaints, such as irritation and minor infection” linked to the recalled wipes.

The recall includes certain lots of Cottonelle® Flushable Wipes and Cottonelle® GentlePlus Flushable Wipes that were manufactured between February 7, 2020 and September 14, 2020.

The recalled products include the 10-pack of flushable wipes sold at Costco stores in Canada (Costco Item 2095369).

According to the recall statement from Kimberly-Clark,”Individuals who have a weakened immune system, suffer from serious pre-existing conditions, have been treated surgically, or belong to another sensitive group of persons are at particular risk of infection.”

For more information, contact Kimberly-Clark’s Consumer Service team via ‘Contact Us’ or at 1-800-414-0165 regarding this recall.

  2. I bought Cottonelle from Amazon. They notified me Saturday October 10 that you had a recall. I tried to call the phone number 18004140165 about six times and it would hang up. I tried to send message on your website and it would not send. At this moment I have been waiting on hold for about 50 minutes. This does not look good for your company. This is your mistake .

  4. I have been using your recalled product and recently was treated with antibiotics for a urinary tract infection and have been told to see a urologist for blood in my urine over several months. I have type 2 diabetes. I am beginning to think that my bladder irritation and UTI may have been caused by your product.
