Millions of Clorox products with faulty childproof caps recalled

An estimated 5.4 million bottles of liquid clog removers from The Clorox Company are being recalled because of their potentially faulty caps, a July 14 article of cpsc.gov reported.

According to reports, the 17 oz bottles of Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter, Pro-Strength Urgent Clear, and Industrial Strength Urgent Clear may have faulty child-resistant caps. The bottles contain strong chemical solutions that can cause irritation, burn injuries, and other serious injuries if children remove its red cap cover. The Poison Prevention Packaging Act requires products to have child-resistant covers or packaging if they contain sodium hydroxide. The Clorox Company was notified of 221 incidents of leaking bottles and eight faulty cover reports. Clorox does not know of any injuries involving the recalled products. Consumers were told to keep products away from children’s reach and notify Clorox for a refund.
