RECALL: No-Rinse Cleansing Foam

RECALL: No-Rinse Cleansing Foam- The FDA is investigating a multistate outbreak of B. Cepacia complex linked to Medline remedy essentials no-rinse cleansing foam. These products may be contaminated with the bacteria Burkholderia Cepacia Complex (BCC). So far there have been 15 confirmed cases; California (7), New Jersey (1) and Pennsylvania (7).


The FDA is advising health professionals and consumers to avoid using products that have been recalled by Shadow Holdings dba Bocchi Laboratories as they might be contaminated with bacteria within the Burkholderia cepacia complex, also commonly called Bcc.

On May 8, 2018, Shadow Holdings dba Bocchi Laboratories expanded their recall to include additional products, including an additional lot (M07476) of Medline Remedy Essentials No-Rinse Cleansing Foam. The recalled lot numbers for Medline Remedy Essentials No-Rinse Cleansing Foam include: M05703, M06691, M07247, and M07476.

This cleansing foam is a product used for skin and perineal care. It is used in hospitals and home-health care settings for people who are unable to shower or bathe after surgery or due to other acute health conditions. The FDA is particularly concerned about contamination in this product, since product instructions do not include rinsing the product from patient skin.

Who is at Risk?

Bcc poses little medical risk to healthy people. However, people who have certain health problems, such as weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, and chronic granulomatous disease, or wound infections might be more susceptible to infections with Bcc.

Note for Consumers:

FDA is currently advising health professionals and consumers to avoid using products that have been recalled by Shadow Holdings dba Bocchi Laboratories, and recalled lots of Medline No-Rinse Cleansing Foam in particular.
