An aromatherapy spray sold at Walmart may contain a "rare and dangerous" bacteria that's been linked to multiple illnesses, including two deaths, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Walmart issued a recall for The Better Homes & Gardens Lavender & Chamomile Essential Oil Infused Aromatherapy Room Spray with Gemstones after a sample tested positive for Burkholderia pseudomallei, "which causes melioidosis, a condition that is difficult to diagnose and can be fatal," according to the recall notice posted by CPSC.

The recall covers six different scents that were sold at more than 50 Walmart stores and on the retailer's website. The spray bottles were available from February until late October when Walmart pulled the product from its shelves.
Representatives for Walmart did not respond to FOX Business' request for comment.
Laboratory testing by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) originally revealed the presence of Burkholderia pseudomallei, which was "the same type of bacteria that sickened four people in the United States earlier this year," the CDC said.
