WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWS10) — Almost 5.5 million bottles of Liquid Plumr clog removing products are being recalled by the Consumer Product Safety Commission after several bottles were found to be non-child resistant.
The recall affects three types of Liquid Plumr: Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter, Liquid Plumr Industrial Strength Urgent Clear, and Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Urgent Clear® clog removers
The affected products are sold in 17-ounce bottles that are about nine inches tall.
The Clorox Company 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.
These products contain sodium hydroxide which is required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act to be sealed with child-resistant packaging.
The CPSC says consumers should keep the recalled products away from children and immediately contact The Clorox Company’s Liquid Plumr call center for disposal and refund instructions.
The Clorox Company’s Liquid Plumr call center can be reached at 855-490-0705 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or online at http://www.liquidplumr.com.
