AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Three lots of Vicks Sinex nasal spray are  being recalled in  the United States, United Kingdom and Germany because of potential contamination with the bacteria, B. cepacia.   According to a recall notice issued by Proctor & Gamble,  B. cepacia  has been found in some of  the product made at its plant in Gross Gerau, Germany, and in a small amount of Vicks Sinex nasal spray from the recalled lot sold in the States.

There have been no reports of illness.  However, the bacteria could cause serious infections for individuals with a compromised immune system, or those with chronic lung conditions, such as cystic fibrosis.  B. cepacia poses little medical risk to healthy individuals.

The three lots of Vicks Sinex nasal spray being recalled are:

  • United States:  Lot # 9239028831; Product Name: Vicks Sinex Vapospray 12-Hour Decongestant Ultra Fine Mist, 15 ml., Nasal Spray

  • Germany:  Lot # 9224028833; Product Name:  Wick Sinex Schnupfenspray Dosiersystem, 15 ml

The lot number is listed on both the outer carton and the bottle.

Proctor & Gamble is  removing the product in question from store shelves and has informed regulatory authorities in the affected countries.  Consumers have been advised to discard the affected product as they would any OTC medicine.
