Oral-B Mouthwash Recall


Health Canada advises that Procter & Gamble (P&G) is voluntarily recalling its Oral B Anti-Cavity Dental Rinse - Alcohol Free (NPN 02129930) and Oral-B Anti-Bacterial with Fluoride - Alcohol Free Daily Use Mouthrinse (DIN 02130823) products due to possible microbial contamination.

The company claims that the microbial levels are relatively harmless to healthy people, but those with severely weakened immune systems may be susceptible to adverse health effects.

P&G is asking retailers to stop selling the affected products and recommends that the public dispose of these products and contact the company for a refund.
