Risk of Bacteria Exposure Prompts Dry Carpet Cleaner Recall


A risk of bacteria exposure has prompted the recall of six brands of dry carpet cleaner. 

The recall involves about 550,000 units of dry carpet cleaner under the following brand names: Arm and Hammer, Capture, Healthy Home, Oreck, Resista and Riccar. 

These recalled units can contain harmful bacteria which poses a risk of respiratory and other infections in individuals with weak immune systems. 

People with healthy immune systems are generally not affected by the bacteria. 

The products under recall were sold at stores nationwide from July 2015 through September 2016. 

Consumers should stop using the recalled products and can contact the manufacturer, Milliken, for a free replacement.
