So, I saw this recall...and noticed it was related to a bug infestation. So, I stopped long enough to see...what preservative system they were using. I had assumed (incorrectly) that they were trying to placate the enviro nuts and using some craziness like leucidal. A quick scan of the INCI...It appears to be a rather sound program....containing both F releasers and parabens.
So how did the train go off the tracks here? I always assumed, that even if they practiced poor sanitation during production, a robust preservative system would counteract this? I guess the bad guy in this case is: Pluralibacter gergoviae.
I realize the media specializes in fake news and sensationalism, so maybe it is too early to comment, but I would like to hear those in industry chime in, and speculate what happened? INCI below:

Is there an ingredient conflict...something that might cancel out the preservatives?
