According to the story, the seizure came after a warning from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) that revealed that there were high levels of potentially disease-causing bacteria in Clarcon products.
The seizure of these finished products, as well as their ingredients, occurred after Clarcon did not agree to promptly destroy them as was requested by the FDA, the story stated.
Clarcon produced and distributed over 800,000 bottles of hand-sanitizing products throughout the U.S. since 2007, the story noted.
Some of the bacteria present in the contaminated products can cause opportunistic infections of the skin and underlying tissues and according to the FDA, such infections may need medical or surgical attention and may result in permanent damage, the story added.
