Six brands of dry carpet cleaning powder are being recalled for possibly containing harmful bacteria. Arm & Hammer, Capture, Healthy Home, Oreck, Resista and Riccar brands are affected. The powder can be sprinkled on carpets and rugs to clean and deodorize. The dry carpet cleaner was sold in various sizes and lot numbers. The lot number is printed on stickers on each container marked with a letter followed by the five-digit lot number. Capture and Resista brand dry carpet cleaners were sold individually and as part of a cleaning kit including a pre-mist spray and a brush.
The powder was sold at Home Depot, Lowes, Menards, Oreck, Walmart and specialty carpet and vacuum stores nationwide from July 2015 through September 2016 for between $5 and $40 for the individual bottles or between $20 and $50 for a kit.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled dry carpet cleaner and contact Milliken to receive a free replacement.
