The reason for this recall is the presence of the bacterium "pseudomonas aeruginosa" in lots numbered 0DBCB and 0DBCA of the product. This bacterium can cause illness under certain circumstances, especially in immunocompromised people.
It is the Essence brand itself that is at the origin of this withdrawal, it also clearly mentions it on its website. If you have this product, stop using it and bring it back to the point of sale.
