Additional information:

Among the 34 recalls the European Union has announced in its second report of June 2018, the following recall notification was made:

Vigor branded Drain Cleaning Products [EU]Vigor branded Bathroom Drain Cleaning Products and Vigor branded Kitchen Drain Cleaner-Gel Products sold with an EAN of 5000325047334 (for the Bathroom Drain Product) and an EAN of 5000325047358 (for the Kitchen Drain Product).

The type of hazards presented in this recalled product include the possibility that the corrosive liquid inside the bottles of Drain Cleaning Products may leak because the bottle cap is not sufficiently tight to ensure proper closure. In addition, the bottle caps are reportedly not child resistant, meaning a child could gain access to the corrosive liquids inside the bottles and sustain serious skin and/or eye injuries if these liquids are poured or splashed on body tissues. Further, if the corrosive liquids are swallowed, they could cause life-changing injuries or death.

If this cap closure defect occurs, corrosive liquid may leak or be released during transit and/or storage causing chemical burns.

These Cleaning Products, therefore, do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Classification, Labelling and Packaging (“CLP”) Regulation.

==> Please do not let your child play with or near any of these recalled Drain Cleaning Products. Instead, please return the products to the store or online outlet from which you purchased them for a full refund.
