BETHESDA, MD 01 August 2012—FDA on August 1 announced the recall of approximately 90 lots of Chinese-manufactured benzalkonium chloride antiseptic wipes made for Ronkonkoma, New York-based Dukal Corporation.
According to FDA, the wipes may be contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia and could thus pose an infection risk, especially to patients with a compromised immune system. The agency advised anyone with the recalled wipes in their possession to dispose of them.
The recalled benzalkonium chloride antiseptic wipes are marketed as Dukal or Zee products.
No adverse events related to the use of the wipes have been reported to Dukal, according to the company.
