WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of various brands of acne cream because of possible contamination.

The FDA said the manufacturer, CSI USA Inc. of Gallatin, Tenn., issued a voluntary nationwide recall of all lots of 1 ounce tubes of 10 percent benzoyl peroxide acne cream after some of the lots were found to contain bacteria identified as Burkholderia Cepacia, formerly known as Pseudomonas Cepacia, which poses a health hazard for some people.

The medication is sold as "DG Maximum Strength Acne Medicated Gel" at Dollar General stores, Kroger Acne Gel 10 percent Benzoyl Peroxide Acne Medication at Kroger Co. outlets and Equate: Medicated Acne Gel at Wal-Mart stores.

Consumers can obtain a refund by mailing the tube, or proof of purchase, to CSI USA, Inc., 170 Commerce Way, Gallatin, Tenn., 37066, Attn: Acne Cream Recall.
