The Saint Lucia Bureau of Standards wishes to advise the public that Colgate-Palmolive has issued a voluntary recall for Fabuloso Multi-Purpose Cleaners due to risk of exposure to bacteria.
The recalled products may contain Pseudomonas species bacteria, including Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas fluorescens, which are environmental organisms found widely in soil and water.
Colgate-Palmolive indicates that the correct amount of preservative was not added to the affected batches during the manufacturing process, leaving the bottles at risk of bacterial overgrowth.
People with weakened immune systems, external medical devices, or underlying lung conditions who are exposed to the bacteria face a risk of serious infection that may require medical treatment. The bacteria can enter the body if inhaled, through the eyes, or through a break in the skin. People with healthy immune systems are usually not affected by the bacteria.

The recall, conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, encompasses 4.9 million bottles produced from December 14, 2022 through January 23, 2023, when the manufacturing issue was corrected. Some 3.9 million of these bottles — or about 80 percent — were never released for sale.
Consumers who have purchased affected product should verify the lot numbers to determine if their product is part of affected Lot. Cease use of affected product.
Fabuloso Antibacterial multi-purpose cleaning products and select other variants of Fabuloso multi-purpose cleaning products are not included in this recall and are listed below.
If your product states “Made in Mexico” on the back label, it is not included in this recall.
Please check the UPC (the 12-digit number next to the barcode) and manufacturing (lot) codes (embossed into the plastic of the bottle either above or below the back label) to confirm your products are included in the recall.
Sample images are below.
