The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on Thursday, July 14, that Clorox is recalling nearly five and a half million bottles of Liquid Plumr due to a defect in the bottles that allows children to open them. There have been 221 reports of the bottles leaking, but no reported injuries despite Liquid Plumr being known to irritate the skin and cause burns.
Description: Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter, Liquid Plumr Industrial Strength Urgent Clear, and Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Urgent Clear.
Stores: sold nationwide at stores including Dollar General, Kroger, Lowe’s, Target, Walgreens and Walmart, online at Amazon.com, Drugstore.com, and Quidsi.com. All sales were between January 2012 and May 2016.
Clorox released a statement, saying they believe it’s possible all affected bottles have already been used, but any that remain should be kept out of reach of children; anyone with the affected bottles can contact the Clorox Company for a refund.
If you or your child was affected by a defective product, you might be able to receive compensation from the liable party. Contact a lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (414) 271-0900 for more information.
