Five different scented versions of the cleaner are affected, according to the Fabuloso recall notice.

Over 4.9 million Fabuloso multipurpose cleaning products are being recalled by Colgate-Palmolive, a significant manufacturer of household goods, because they may expose users to harmful germs.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission warned on Wednesday that the recalled products may contain bacteria of the Pseudomonas type, which are widespread environmental organisms in soil and water

An announcement on the Fabuloso website claims that a preservative was not used in the right amounts during manufacture.

A lack of preservative in the recalled products, according to the notification, poses a risk of bacterial growth.
