Some Cottonelle flushable wipes have been recalled for possible bacterial contamination

Kimberly-Clark announced a recall of some its Cottonelle Flushable Wipes products.

(CNN)Kimberly-Clark is recalling some of its Cottonelle Flushable Wipes products due to the possible presence of bacteria that can lead to infection in some individuals.

The bacteria detected in the affected packages of flushable wipes is called pluralibacter gergoviae, a bacteria known to bring about infections in immunocompromised people and cause numerous recalls of cosmetic products.
"Pluralibacter gergoviae rarely causes serious infections in healthy individuals," Kimberly-Clark said on its product recall information page. "However, individuals with weakened immune systems are at a heightened risk of infection."
