FDA Finds Bacteria in Clarcon Skin Sanitizer
The Food and Drug administration issued a statement on Monday June 8, 2009 warning consumers to throw away Clarcon products and not to purchase any new ones. This announcement came after the FDA discovered a disease causing bacteria in a variety of over-the-counter products made by the company during a routine inspection of Clarcon’s manufacturing plant.
According to the FDA, the high levels of bacteria found could cause serious damage to the skin resulting in probable medial or surgical attention and grievous personal injury—the damage could even be permanent. Buyers were told to stay away from Clarcon products like Citrushield Lotion, Iron Fist Barrier Hand Treatment, Skin Shield Restaurant, Skin Shield Industrial, Skin Shield Beauty Salon Lotion, Dermassentials, Derma Barrier, Dermassentials, Antimicrobial Hand Sanitizer, Total Skin Care Beauty and Total Skin Care Work.
Sadly, this announcement could have come far too late for many users and serious harm could have already occurred.
