— A pink cleaning supply was selling for $4.50 on eBay on Thursday, a source close to the transaction told The Washington Post.
The seller’s address was listed on the site as Redditch, Miss., a small town about 30 miles northeast of Jackson.
The listing said that the pink cleaning products were for sale and were being delivered to customers’ homes by mail.
The items were labeled with “Pink cleaning supplies” and “cleaners,” and were marked as “hand sanitizer and disinfectant.”
In a statement, the seller said it had received a number of complaints about the sale.
“I am very concerned and am investigating this as quickly as possible,” the seller, who asked not to be named, said.
The Redditch store is one of several in Mississippi that has recently been hit hard by the outbreak. “
Pink cleaner is a disinfectant and not tested for safety or efficacy, and is not meant to be used on raw animal skin.”
The Redditch store is one of several in Mississippi that has recently been hit hard by the outbreak.
On Monday, Walmart announced it was canceling all shipments of its cleaning supplies after two people died in Mississippi after inhaling the tainted products.
A third victim died last week after contracting the virus.
While the sale of pink cleaning tools is a relatively new trend, a nationwide campaign to sell the items began this week, after a new outbreak of the virus hit the U.S. last month.
After a spate of new cases, Walmart has taken to the company’s website to remind customers that “anyone who uses cleaning products containing lead, arsenic or mercury can be exposed to this virus.”
A spokesman for Walmart, Todd Miller, said that while the company had halted shipments of cleaning supplies and other cleaning supplies in the United States, it did not believe the outbreak posed a health threat.
In Mississippi, officials are still looking for the source of the contamination.
People who are in the state are still being tested, Miller said.
As of Friday morning, no new cases have been reported in Mississippi.
