Recall: Listerine Agent Cool Blue

Johnson & Johnson recalled all bottles of Listerine Agent Cool Blue after tests revealed contamination by microorganisms.

In their press release, they phrase it a little differently, saying, “the Company determined that the preservative system is not adequate against certain microorganisms.”

No consumer illnesses were reported, the company said, and risk was only there for people with weak immune systems.

J&J marketed Agent Cool Blue to kids and the rinse makes plaque show up blue on your teeth in an attempt to encourage better brushing. Though, if we were kids, we’d be all like, wow, let’s see how blue I can make my teeth. — BEN POPKEN
