Check your bathroom again: More of this popular moisturizer is recalled

The recalled moisturizer may contain a bacteria that can pose a risk to people with weakened immune systems.

The maker of Jergens has identified more lot numbers in a recall of some of its moisturizing products because they may contain a bacteria that can pose a risk to people with weakened immune systems.

The recall is for specific lots of 3-ounce and 10-ounce bottles of Jergens Ultra Healing Moisturizer with specific codes, the Kao USA Inc. said earlier this month.

The bacteria, Pluralibacter gergoviae, typically poses little risk to healthy people, Kao USA said.

"However, people who have certain health problems such as weakened immune systems may be more susceptible to infections," the announcement reads. The recall is voluntary and being taken as a precaution.

The 3-ounce bottles will have UPC 019100109971 for single bottles and 019100267114 for pack of three. On the back of the bottle, printed in black, will be one of these lot codes with the prefix "ZU." There were originally seven lot numbers. The FDA said Wednesday the two in bold have been added.
