This is scary I have heard of this happening before in an alcohol-free perfume...... To be on the safe side I think I will just stay away from ALL alcohol-free products!
Voluntary Recall of Mouthwash Distributed Nationwide by Cardinal Health
May 6, 2008
Hydrox Labs has issued a voluntary recall of Cardinal Health labeled alcohol-free mouthwash. The mouthwash has been tested and been found positive for Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia). The Centers for Disease Control has confirmed hospital illnesses in one state associated with the use of the affected mouthwash.
B. cepacia is a bacteria that can be found in soil and water and poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems like weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis (CF), may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia.
