Contaminated with bacteria: Drugstore dm gets back scrub mask
In a cosmetic product of the drugstore chain dm dangerous germs were discovered. The trader calls customers to return the peeling mask – the purchase price will be refunded.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa can, for example, infect existing skin injuries in individual cases, it is said by dm. So far, there have been no complaints from customers because of health impairments associated with the product. Anyone who notes “persistent skin irritation” after application should contact a doctor. A short burn after application of the mask is normal for sensitive skin types. This should abate after a short time.
There probably was a conservation problem
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a widespread soil and water bacterium. Because it feels comfortable in humid environments, it is also common in tap water, sinks and toilets. In addition, the bacterium is known as a hospital germ. Most Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains are naturally resistant to a variety of antibiotics, reports the Robert Koch Institute.
