RECALL NOTICE: Cottonelle Flushable Wipes Lawsuit Investigation
Stueve Siegel Hanson is investigating potential claims against Kimberly-Clark, the owner of popular toilet paper brand Cottonelle, relating to a recall involving a bacteria detected in Cottonelle’s products, including Cottonelle Flushable Wipes, Cottonelle GentlePlus Flushable Wipes, and Cottonelle FreshFeel Flushable Wet Wipes for Adults, among others, manufactured between Feb. 7 and Sept. 14, 2020.
In October, Amazon, Costco and other retailers began warning customers who purchased certain Cottonelle Flushable Wipes that their products might contain a strain of antibiotic-resistant bacteria known as Pluralibacter gergoviae which was detected during product testing.
This strain of bacteria is an opportunistic pathogen that can cause serious infection in humans. Individuals who have a weakened immune system, suffer from pre-existing conditions, have been treated surgically, or belong to another sensitive group of persons are at particular risk of harm. Cottonelle is recalling all affected products.
