Title Multiple Pet Products Recalled Due to Microbial Exposure Concerns
Introduction MPL Laboratories provides microbial, sterility and other testing services for pet products, consumer goods, personal care products, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals at its FDA registered, cGMP and ISO 17025 compliant testing facility.

Sparta, NJ, January 18, 2024

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently posted information about four pet products that have been recalled due to potential microbial contamination. All of the products were sold under one brand and included a deodorizing pet bedding spray, waterless foaming shampoo, deodorizing fragrance spritz, and a detangling and conditioning spray.


CPSC reports:

The recalled pet products can contain bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa, an environmental organism found widely in soil and water. People with weakened immune systems or external medical devices who are exposed to Pseudomonas aeruginosa face a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment. The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin. People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria.


Included in the recall are approximately 59,000 units of the pet products that were sold online and through specialty stores from June of this year through August. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled products.


Dedicated to helping manufacturers, importers and retailers prevent these types of costly product recalls, and the health risks associated with contaminated products reaching consumers, are the microbial testing experts at MPL Laboratories. Their scientists provide sterility and microbial testing for a broad spectrum of contaminants, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa. All testing takes place in MPL’s FDA registered and cGMP, ISO 17025 compliant laboratory to ensure the highest quality results.
