(Reuters) - Procter & Gamble Co said it recalled two types of its Oral-B mouthwash in Canada after detecting possible microbial contamination in some products.

The company said it has informed Health Canada about the issue and is removing all affected products -- "Oral B Anti-Cavity Dental Rinse" and "Oral-B Anti-Bacterial with Fluoride" -- from store shelves.

Procter & Gamble also said the contamination posed nearly no risk to healthy people, but might impact people with severely weakened immune systems, such as those with cystic fibrosis.

Shares of the Cincinnati-based company closed at $64.64 on Wednesday on the New York Stock Exchange.
