Unilever Canada Inc issues recall for Clear for Men Shampoo

Unilever Canada is recalling four (4) SKUs of Clear for Men Shampoo/Conditioner. These products do not meet the specification required for preservatives.

The level of preservatives may not protect products from growth of micro-organisms, including pathogenic bacteria and there is a risk of illness, particularly in certain vulnerable populations such as those who are immunosuppressed or cystic fibrosis sufferers.

The products were distributed nationwide starting in 2013 to the present through retail stores.

Please see below for the products names and their consumer unit UPC Codes. No other expiry dates have been affected.
