The number of germs is too high

Jean Products-WERM GmbH from Karsbach (Bavaria) is recalling the article “Elina med Anti-Plaque Mouthwash Fresh” 500ml with batch number 710001. "The number of microorganisms / germs is too high," the company wrote in a message. According to a report by the internet portal "produktwarnung.eu", the product was sold to various wholesalers, online retailers and retailers nationwide.

Dangerous bacteria

According to "produktwarnung.eu", the company announced that the product was found to contain Pseudomonas aeruginosa. It is a widespread wound infection germ.

According to the information, there is an increased risk especially due to lesions in the skin and mucous membrane due to the bacterium, which shows multiple resistance to antibiotics.
