Cottonelle Flushable Wipes Recall Attorneys in Philadelphia

Cottonelle Flushable Wipes Lawsuit

Our legal team at Golomb & Honik, P.C. in Philadelphia is investigating new potential claims from clients who used Cottonelle® brand flushable wipes manufactured by Kimberly-Clark. According to a voluntary recall, certain lots of products have been contaminated by the bacteria pluralibacter gergoviae. All recalled products have been manufactured between February 7th, 2020 and September 14th, 2020, meaning that any purchases made during and shortly after that time could be affected.

Which Cottonelle Products Were Recalled?

Kimberly-Clark has identified two products in its recall:

  • Cottonelle® Flushable Wipes
  • Cottonelle® GentlePlus Flushable Wipes

What is Pluralibacter Gergoviae?

Pluralibacter gergoviae is a naturally occurring yet resilient strain of bacteria. In most exposure incidents, people experience no or mild infection symptoms, such as irritation around the exposed skin. Kimberly-Clark has stated that it has only received complaints of such mild symptoms from Cottonelle Flushable Wipes users, which prompted the internal investigation and eventual recall.

Cottonelle Recall Risks

Pluralibacter gergoviae is certainly not harmless. In some people, it can cause a serious infection with severe symptoms, such as nausea, persistent fever, respiratory complications, and even bleeding.

Risk of a severe bacterial infection increase due to:

  • Weakened immune systems
  • Preexisting conditions
  • Recent surgeries
  • Bacterial allergies
