Cabot Recalls Wood Cleaner and Wood Brightener Due to Irritation and Burn Hazard

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall for Cabot Stains Wood Cleaner and Wood Brightener products due to serious burn injuries.

17,500 units of Cabot Stains Wood Cleaner and 10,900 units of Cabot Stains Wood Brightener are affected by this recall. Both products feature a spray pump which helps consumers achieve an even distribution when staining/cleaning products. The spray pump used for both products can lose its seal, causing the product to leak. Chemicals used in these products can cause burning or other serious injuries if the product comes into contact with skin or eyes or is ingested. So far, three incidents of leaks have been reported but no injuries have been reported.

Cabot Stains Wood Brightener and Cleaner are sold at Ace Hardware, Do It Best, Lowes Home Improvement Stores, and other hardware stores nationwide from March 2011 until June 2012 for about $25.  Products with UPC codes 080351810503 on the Wood Cleaner bottles and 080351810497 on the Wood Brightener bottles are affected by this recall.

Consumers should immediately discontinue use of the products and return them to the store of purchase for a full refund. Consumers should also not attempt to reuse empty containers.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
