Washington (AP) The maker of Listerine is recalling one of its rinses after tests showed it was contaminated with microorganisms.

A Johnson and Johnson spokeswoman says a company unit is recalling four million bottles of the recently launched Listerine Agent Cool Blue plaque-detecting rinse, marketed primarily for use by children. The recall affects the glacier mint and bubble blast flavors.

The company says tests showed contamination, despite the use of preservatives.

However, the company says there have be no reports of health problems from the contamination.

Consumers are advised to stop using the product and throw it away. Refunds are being offered.
