RECALL ALERT: Spectrum Brands Pet Care Recalls DeShedding Conditioner Due To Potential Bacteria Contamination


Spectrum Brands Pet Care voluntarily recalls their FURminator deShedding Ultra Premium Dog Conditioner due to potential contamination of bacteria.

The recalled product is a dog fur deshedding conditioner sold in a clear one-gallon container, with and without a pump, and with a black label on it with “FURminator deShedding Ultra Premium Conditioner” written on it.

“The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin,” they continued.

Currently, there have been no injuries reported. However, the CPSC said they have received four reports of mold developing in the recalled product’s container.
