Here’s Why You May Not See Clorox Products On The Shelves
You may notice that Clorox products on the shelves at your grocery store may be low or missing. There’s a very good reason why. Clorox made an announcement that because of a recent cyber security attack some products may be harder to find. That cyber security attack caused widespread disruptions to Clorox’s business. The attack caused the company to take some of its systems off-line. They ended up having to process orders manually. There is no word on how long it will take to have Clorox return to normal business. Although, automated ordering processing should be returning next week. They did say they have resumed production at the “vast majority” of its manufacturing facilities. They filed the cyber security attack with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Clorox company is based in Oakland, California. They have over 9,000 employees worldwide. In 2022 they sold $7.1 billion worth of products. Clorox has been on the Fortune 500 company list since 2000. Next time you go to you local Tampa Bay area grocery you may notice the products being low or missing. The Clorox products will be back on the shelves soon enough.
Other Products Clorox Owns
You may think of Clorox as having bleach and household cleaning products, but they actually own a whole bunch of other things as well. They own the Brita water filtration system and Burt Bees natural cosmetics and personal care products. Additionally, they own Glad trash bags and they actually own Kingsford charcoal. Finally, they also own Liquid-Plumr drain cleaner and Pine-Sol. Maybe the most interesting thing that they own is Hidden Valley dressings. Yes, the ones you put on your salad Clorox owns.
