Vicks nasal sprays recalled over bacteria fears

Thousands of Vicks nasal sprays were being recalled last night amid fears they could contain a dangerous bacteria.

Routine testing showed the spray could contain B. cepacia, which can cause serious infections in people with a weak immune system or with lung conditions.

There were no reports of anyone falling ill from the sprays, Procter & Gamble, the firm's parent company said.
