What is Pseudomonas aeruginosa?
According to the Todar’s Online Textbook of Bacteriology, Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an opportunistic pathogen, meaning that it exploits some break in the host defenses to initiate an infection. In fact, Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the epitome of an opportunistic pathogen of humans. The bacterium almost never infects uncompromised tissues, yet there is hardly any tissue that it cannot infect if the tissue defenses are compromised in some manner.
It causes urinary tract infections, respiratory system infections, dermatitis, soft tissue infections, bacteremia, bone and joint infections, gastrointestinal infections and a variety of systemic infections, particularly in patients with severe burns and in cancer and AIDS patients who are immunosuppressed.
There have not been any reported adverse reactions for this product in the United States to date.
As a precautionary measure, consumers who have received or purchased Splish Splash Gentle Baby Wash (Lot# 814020), in any size or format, should return the product to a Saje retail outlet, for a full refund.
