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.

 The drugstore chain “dm” recalls the article “beautiful peeling mask 100 ml” of its own brand Alverde. The batches with the best before dates September 2019 and October 2019 are affected.
The reason: One can not rule out that in the packages isolated bacteria of the species Pseudomonas aeruginosa are included, the company reports. Customers are “urged” to return exfoliants with the stated shelf life data to the markets. 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

 How the bacteria got into the scrub is not fully understood. The drugstore explains that she was noticed during routine laboratory tests irregularities in the exfoliation. It is therefore assumed that the product was not sufficiently preserved. This is how the germ could multiply.

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.
