Colgate-Palmolive has recalled about 4.9 million bottles of Fabuloso® multi-purpose cleaning solution that were sold from December 2022 through January 2023.

The bottles may be contaminated with bacteria because they were manufactured with “inadequate” amounts of a preservative that is supposed to prevent bacterial growth, according to the company.

The risk is that the bottles may contain Pseudomonas bacteria, including strains that are highly antibiotic-resistant.

No infections were reported and the recall said that healthy people usually are not affected.

However, people with weakened immune systems, external medical devices or underlying lung conditions could develop a serious infection if they are exposed to the bacteria.

The first 8 digits of the lot code of the recalled products are 2348US78 through 2365US78 and 3001US78 through 3023US78.

Fabuloso was sold nationwide at and other websites and at Dollar General, Family Dollar, The Home Depot, Sam’s Club, Walmart, and other major retailers for between $1 and $11.

Colgate-Palmolive asked people to immediately stop using the recalled bottles of Fabuloso. Do not empty the bottles before throwing them out to prevent the spread of bacteria.
