What we know about the new ‘heb’ carpet cleaner: The smell that’s really going to get you into trouble?
A new carpet cleaner has become a hot topic after the Food and Drug Administration said it would soon begin testing products made by the Heb Company, the nation’s largest carpet cleaner maker.
The FDA said on Tuesday that it is preparing to issue a notice to the company, which it says is the world’s largest manufacturer of carpet cleaning and degreaser and cleaning products.
“These products may pose a risk of causing a potential allergic reaction or other adverse reactions,” the FDA said.
The company says the products were developed specifically for the health and safety of consumers.
“We are aware of these products, and we are working with FDA on their implementation and are awaiting final regulatory approval,” the company said in a statement.
“As we have always said, we are focused on protecting our customers and our employees.”
The FDA says it is not aware of any reported adverse reactions or adverse effects related to the products.
