Henkel has voluntarily recalled 180 bottles of its Alterna Bond Repair Leave-in Heat Protection Spray because it has the potential to be contaminated with Burkholderia cepacia complex (BCC), which poses little medical risk to healthy people, but can cause an increased risk for illness or infection in people who have certain health problems.
Henkel has so far received no reports of harm or injury in connection with this product.
The Alterna Bond Repair Leave-in Heat Protection Spray included in this recall comes in a 4.2 ounce purple plastic spray bottle marked with lot #Y401427403 on the bottom and was distributed nationwide through a distributor. The product was available for sale to the public no earlier than April 12, 2022.
Henkel is conducting this voluntary recall with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Customers are encouraged to return the product to their place of purchase for a full refund.
