Valspar Recalls Wood Cleaners and Brighteners Due to Chemical Hazard
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Valspar Cabot has voluntarily
recalled around 10,000 wood cleaners and wood brighteners due to a faulty cap seal.
The company states that the seal can cause contents to leak out and pose
a chemical hazard to their consumers. Ingesting, inhaling or skin contact
with this product can cause burning and other injuries. The brightener
and cleaners were sold in one gallon white bottles with the Cabot logo
on the front. The wood cleaners were sold at Menards, and the wood brighteners
were sold at multiple stores including Blain Supply, Do It Best, L&M
Fleet Supply, Menards and Orgill in 10 states including Missouri and Illinois
from August 2016 through September 2016 for $15. The company urges consumers
to stop using the products, keep away from children and contact Valspar
for disposal and refund instructions.
Product liability laws hold manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, and
retailers responsible for any injuries that their products cause. Recalls
can affect consumer products, food, vehicles and even child safety. Many
recalls can be easily fixed by returning the product for a refund or replacement.
However, many of the recalled products can cause injury to the consumer.
It is the responsibility of the company to ensure safety to all of their
consumers. If you have suffered damages from a defective product, you
may have grounds for a personal injury claim.
