Wild Tornado branded Sink and Drain Cleaner products, sold with an unlisted model designation and an unlisted barcode/EAN/UPC. The product is a highly corrosive drain cleaner designed to be used to unclog drains, toilets and sinks.

No batch/lot designations, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other codes were listed with this recall.

The type of hazards presented in the recalled Wild Tornado branded Sink and Drain Cleaner products include the reported findings that the recalled Drain Cleaner products are extremely Basic (measured pH value: 14) and, as such, are highly corrosive. The Drain Cleaner products as sold into the European marketplace, however, lack the appropriate and required hazard pictograms, warnings, precautionary statements and a child-resistant fastening to his type of product.

Specifically, users of these products have no information concerning the safe use and the dangers of the product, and could accidentally come into contact with the product, suffering of severe skin corrosion, serious eye damage and lung injury. Depending on the circumstances, the amount of the product used as well as the overall health and age of the user, these injuries could be life-changing and/or life-threatening.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Wild Tornado branded Sink and Drain Cleaner do not comply with the European Commission Directive regulations on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (“CLP”).

Consequently, a recall of these Wild Tornado branded Sink and Drain Cleaner products and a withdrawal of the product from the European marketplace has been ordered.
