THIS IS BIG

Three Types of Liquid Plumr Clog Removers Recalled by The Clorox Company Due to Failure to Meet Child-Resistant Closure Requirement

Liquid Plumr® Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter®, Liquid Plumr® Industrial Strength Urgent Clear® and Liquid Plumr® Pro-Strength Urgent Clear® clog removers

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.

Flushmate Expands Recall of Flushmate III Pressure-Assisted Flushing Systems Due to Impact and Laceration Hazards

The system can burst at or near the vessel weld seam releasing stored pressure. This pressure can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank, posing impact and laceration hazards to consumers and property damage.

(OK, property damage is one thing, but I am not sure if I want to know about the "laceration" hazard!!!)
