Listerine RECALL!

Johnson and Johnson has just announced that 4 million bottles of Listerine Agent Cool Blue (Glacier Mint and Bubble Blast flavors) are contaminated by microorganisms. Don't know if you can tell by the names of the products, but they are mouthwashes for children.

The recall covers all lots sold or distributed since the product’s launch last year. However it is important to know that the recall does not include any other Listerine products, including traditional versions that contain alcohol (the kids version is alcohol free). Consumers should stop using and properly discard the product. The company is offering full refunds. If you have more questions or concerns you can call the company at 888-222-0249 or visit their AgentCoolBlue.com.

anorthan, I thought it was cool, too. My kids liked it, but I kept it in my cabinet cuz, well, it's blue. And had microrganisms in it. So it always got forgotten. I think the website said nobody has been sick but someone with a weak immune system could become ill. My guess is that you would've known by now. But I'd probably watch for stuff. What do you think that would cause, like, infections in the mouth? Because that's the only place you use it, you know?

I did buy this for my kids and thought it was the coolest invention ever!!!!! You can imagine the sick feeling in my stomache as I look at a bottle that's just about empty. Does anyone know what signs to look for? I checked their website but it didn't list any symptoms. Both of my kids seem to be just fine.

I've never bought this brand of mouth wash. Sad for the people who did give this to their children.

I DID buy this for my kids. THANK GOD I'm too lazy to let them use it!!!!! I bought it months ago, but they've only used it a few times. At least they pulled it before anyone got sick...still scares me that it took them so long to realize the mistake. (Btw...I'm baaaack...fixed the computer MYSELF..I'm so freakin smart)

Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!!!!!! First they start killin off our dogs and now our kids? Is nothing safe? Speaking of there is not a recall on it. But I wouldnt advise using johnson and johnsons head to toe body wash or huggies shea butter baby wash and a few others. They have an ingredient thatcan cause skin cancer. And though they claim its not a high risk or even a risk for humans... I think our babies are worth to play it on the safe side. http://www.breastcancerfund.org/site/pp.asp?c=kwKXLdPaE&b=2483603
