According to Health Canada, as a result of complaints of an ammonia-like odour, the company conducted microbial testing that found the presence of the bacteria Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia) in certain lots of wipe products.

This bacterium poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems such as a weakened immune system or chronic lung disease, particularly Cystic Fibrosis, may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia.

Neither Rockline nor Health Canada has received any reports of consumer incidents or injuries related to the use of these products.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Personal Care Products, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store or outlet where you purchased it for a full refund.

If you have any questions about this recall notification, please contact the company at 1-844-595-8453 (English) or 1-844-894-3055 (French) between 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Eastern Standard Time Monday through Friday. You may also request a coupon for replacement product of your choice.

Please note: the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.
