CSI, USA, Inc. voluntarily recalls all lots of 1-oz. tubes of its 10 percent benzoyl peroxide store-brand acne cream after samples of the products were found to contain bacteria identified as burkholderia cepacia. The Gallatin, Tenn.-based manufacturer Nov. 13 says the recall affects the following brands and retailers: DG Maximum Strength Acne Medicated Gel sold at Dollar General stores; Kroger Acne Gel 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Medication sold at Kroger; and Equate Medicated Acne Gel sold at Wal-Mart. The company says the risk of illness to "healthy individuals" following use of the product is "very low," but there could be an increased health risk of infections for individuals with cuts, scrapes, rashes or other compromised skin conditions, or for people with weakened or suppressed immune systems
