B. Cepacia Outbreak Linked to Medline Cleansing Foam
In May 2018, the FDA reported that 15 people were infected with B. cepacia bacteria after they were bathed with Medline Remedy® No-Rinse Cleansing Foam in hospitals or home-health care settings.
The outbreak was reported in the following 3 states: Pennsylvania (7), California (7), and New Jersey (1).
What is Medline Cleansing Foam?
Medline Remedy® Essentials No-Rinse Cleansing Foam is a product that is used by nurses in hospitals and other healthcare facilities to bathe patients who are recovering from surgery or other illnesses.
What is the Problem?
No-Rinse Cleansing Foam is not supposed to be washed off a patient’s skin. This increases the likelihood of acquiring an infection, especially among hospitalized patients who are already very sick.
Medline Cleansing Foam Recall
Medline recalled No-Rinse Cleansing Foam after multiple products tested positive for B. cepacia bacteria.
The recall involves 4-oz and 8-oz bottles of Medline Remedy Essentials No-Rinse Cleansing Foam from the following lot numbers: M05703, M06691, and M07247.
Symptoms of B. Cepacia Infections
The symptoms of an infection with B. cepacia vary widely. Some people have no symptoms at all, while others develop deadly antibiotic-resistant infections. It can infect the skin, soft tissues, surgical wounds, urinary tract, lungs, and other areas of the body.
