What is GUM Paroex?

GUM Paroex is a prescription-only mouthwash for the treatment of moderate to severe gingivitis. It is also used to manage gingival gum bleeding and inflammation between dental visits.

Was My Mouthwash Recalled?

The recall involves certain lots of GUM Paroex that are marked with expiration dates between June 30, 2022 and September 30, 2022.

What is the Risk?

The recalled bottles of GUM Paroex may be contaminated with Burkholderia lata, a multi-drug resistant bacteria that can cause infections in the mouth. The infection may also spread to the body and cause a life-threatening systemic infection, pneumonia, or bacteremia, which would require antibiotic therapy.
