FURminator deShedding Ultra Premium Dog Conditioner


The FURminator deShedding Ultra Premium Dog Conditioner in 1 Gallon size has been recalled due to potential bacterial contamination, specifically Pseudomonas aeruginosa. This bacterium is commonly found in soil and water and can pose a health risk, especially to individuals with weakened immune systems or those with external medical devices. Exposure to Pseudomonas aeruginosa can lead to severe infections that may necessitate medical intervention. The bacteria can enter the body through inhalation, contact with the eyes, or through cuts in the skin. Generally, individuals with robust immune systems are less likely to be affected by this bacteria.

In response to this issue, customers are advised to seek a refund for the product. The recall was announced on June 6, 2024, affecting approximately 102,000 units in the United States and an additional 250 units that were sold in Canada.

Lot numbers are located on the container's bottom.

Consumers are advised to discontinue using the recalled pet conditioner immediately and should contact the manufacturer to obtain a complete refund. It is important not to empty the product before disposal or pour it down the toilet or drain.
