(WFXR) — Manufacturer Kimberly-Clark is recalling certain Cottonelle flushable wipes due to potential bacterial contamination.
According to Kimberly-Clark, certain lots were found to contain the bacterium pluralibacter gergovaie.

Kimberly-Clark says they have received several non-serious complaints including irritation and minor infections connected to the affected wipes.
The affected wipes were manufactured between February 7, 2020 and September 14, 2020 and are limited to specific lots of Cottonelle flushable wipes and Cottonelle GentlePlus flushable wipes.
Customers can check to see if their product is impacted by the recall by entering their specific lot number on Kimberly-Clark’s website.
