Executive SummaryProcter & Gamble voluntarily recalls three lots of Vicks Sinex 15-mL nasal sprays marketed in Germany, the U.K. and the U.S. after finding the bacteria B. cepacia in products made at its facility in Gross Gerau, Germany. The firm says the recall is precautionary and no illnesses are reported, but the bacteria could cause serious infections for people with a compromised immune system or those with chronic lung conditions. P&G detected the bacteria during routine quality control testing and said analysis shows the problem is limited to a single batch of raw material mixture involving these lots: 9239028831 - Vapospray 12-Hour Decongestant Ultra Fine Mist in the U.S.; 9224028832 - Micromist Aqueous in the U.K.; and 9224028833 - Wick Sinex Schnupfenspray Dosiersystem in Germany
