Hesh Aritha is recalling a Natural Shampoo for your Hair because signs of fecal matter was found in the powder.
Health Canada testing found the recalled powder shampoo contains high numbers of microbial growth, including Klebsiella pneumonia, Escherichia hermannii, Pantoea species, Enterobacter cloacae, and mold.
The species, Enterobacter cloacae, is a coliform. Coliforms are abundant in the feces of warm-blooded animals, and are an indicator of a product manufactured under poor sanitary conditions when found in personal care products. Their presence suggests that other pathogens (disease causing organisms) of fecal origin may also be present.
Since this product is a powder, the pathogens can be introduced into the body by inhalation or can enter open wounds.
Approximately 1,300 units of the products were sold in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba and the Greater Toronto Area.
Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or illnesses related to the use of this product.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and dispose of it in their regular household garbage.
