Additional information:

Among the 38 recalls the European Union has announced in this first report of April 2017, the following notification was made:

Puntomatic brand Cápsulas Puntomatic Explosión de Perfume Laundry Detergent sold with an unknown product code, a batch/lot designation of L-X6166C and L-X6273C and a SKU/barcode/EAN/UPC of 8410046500860.

The type of hazards presented with this Laundry Detergent include chemical irritation and burns: specifically, the laundry capsule is not sufficiently resistant to compression and can burst when squeezed. As a result, the liquid contained within the capsule could be projected into the user’s eyes, causing chemical irritation and/or burns.

Because of this defect, the product does not comply with the European regulation on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures (“CLP”) and the European Regulation (EC) 648/2004 on Detergents. As such, the specific batch/lots of Puntomatic brand Cápsulas Puntomatic Explosión de Perfume Laundry Detergent have been ordered recalled from end users and withdrawn from the European marketplace.
