Another clog concern: 3 Liquid Plumr products recalled
(WTXF) - Got a clog? You also have a recall to learn about before you try to get your pipe flowing again.
The recalls involve three Liquid Plumr products: Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter, Industrial Strength Urgent Clear, and Pro-Strength Urgent Clear clog removers.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the problem is “The recalled bottles are not child-resistant and children can remove the top, posing a risk of chemical burns and irritation to the skin and eyes. These products contain sodium hydroxide which is required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging.”
There are about 5.4 million of the products out there. They are sold in 17 ounce bottles that are about nine inches tall.
The Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter has a UPC Code 44600-00214 and an orange bottle with a red cap.
The Industrial Strength Urgent Clear has a UPC Code 44600-31484 and a black bottle with a red cap.
And the Pro-Strength Urgent Clear has a UPC Code 44600-30548 and a blue bottle with a red cap.
Clorox has received eight reports of the child-resistant bottle caps not working as intended and 221 reports of the bottles leaking. No injuries have been reported.
