Hmmmm.....sounds like maybe preservatives in things can be useful. Some times the simple things aren't the best. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

They had a small amount of bacteria in them, whoop-de-doo.  Something all your towels and gross uncleaned washing machines have a ridiculous amount of (bonus points if you live in a gross apartment building where everyone keeps the laundry machine's door shut constantly leading to mold and bacteria growth)

Their soaps are way better than anyone else's and I will continue to buy them.

But the company issued a media statement on Dec. 1 confirming the recall applied to "products manufactured by a third-party contract manufacturer in the United States due to a risk of exposure to bacteria."

Yeah. I'm willing to hazard a guess, that perhaps they don't want to discuss either the fact that the products are a boutique brand being manufactured by the same folks who make the bargain-basement shiat, or that the products may be combined here but the ingredients used may not be from here, or likely both - that the brand has become a palatable, profitable fiction.

And they've pulled everything from their site. Not just the capability to purchase products, but everything about those products themselves. All of it. I had to hit the Wayback Machine and confirm that these products aren't "made" here. Per the description for their signature laundry detergent, they're "Assembled in The USA ". The ingredients list is interesting, especially given the plant-derived ingredients:

Ingredients: water, sodium laureth sulfate, glycerin, C12-16 pareth-7, cocamidopropyl betaine, lauryl glucoside, acrylic/acrylate ester copolymer, triethanolamine, sodium gluconate, styrene/acrylates copolymer, tetrasodium glutamate diacetate, calcium chloride, protease, lipase, cellulase, amylase, mannanase, fragrances, benzisothiazolinone. Geraniol, citronellol, linalool, eugenol, coumarin and alpha-isomethyl ionone are fragrance allergens. Phosphate free.

This should be fun.
