Soroko Facial Spray Recalled for Contamination

Clifton, NJ (SafetyAlerts) - Soroko Inc. said today it is recalling Rejuvenating Mist facial spray because the product may be contaminated with Psuedomonas sp.

Soroko has not received any reports of illness to date.

The product has a green label that says "Soroko, Inc." and identifies Blade Laboratories of Ontario, Canada as the manufacturer.

According to a company press release the product was distributed mainly in New York, New Jersey, Texas, Mexico, Scotland, and Canada.

In January, laboratory tests showed that samples of the spray were contaminated with pseudomonas, bacteria that can cause serious infection in humans, particularly if it gets into open wounds. If introduced into the eyes, such as from a facial spray, pseudomonas can cause vision-damaging infection.

Consumers should discard the product immediately or return it to where it was purchased. Consumers with questions can call the company at 1-973-472-6501 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST Monday through Saturday.

Notice of this product warning was sent via email to SafetyAlerts subscribers February 9, 2001.  For more information regarding the SafetyAlerts free email alert service please click here.
