The Laundress recalls all detergents, cleaning products over infection risk

Cuisinart appliance, Target toys, stainless sippy cups recalled

SAN ANTONIO – The Laundress, a luxury brand known for selling eco-friendly products, is recalling more than eight-million laundry and cleaning products because they could be contaminated with bacteria and make some people sick.

The company found different types of bacteria in some of its products, according to a recall notice from the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The company said it knows of 11 people reporting pseudomonas infections and is investigating to see if there is a connection.

“People with weakened immune systems, external medical devices and underlying lung conditions, who are exposed to the bacteria face a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment,” the recall notice said. “The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, or through the eyes or a break in the skin. People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria.”

The lengthy list of products was sold through September online and in stores, including Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Target and The Container Store.

The company is offering refunds. The company can be contacted by email at customerservice@thelaundress.com or by calling at 800-681-1915. For a full list of recalled products, customers can click here.
