Rockline Industries has announced a recall for product due to an unpleasant smell.

The company is voluntarily recalling its Ultra Washcloths. The move comes after consumer complaints of an odor that is characteristic of product spoilage.

The recall applies to several varieties of washcloths: Ultra Original, Ultra Scent Free, Ultra Flush, and Ultra Adult. All varieties were sold in 48 count packs. The production date range is 06/01/2015 to 12/31/2015.

The company believes that about 105,000 cases of its products are potentially affected.

The washcloths were distributed to SCA North America in both the U.S. and Canada.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers this action to be a Class II recall, meaning that exposure to this product may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences. The risk of serious health issues is small.

Customers with questions about this recall can contact Rockline Industries at (877) 432-4411.
