Rectorseal branded EP-200 Epoxy Putty, sold with a model number of 97600 and a barcode/EAN of 021449976008.

The recalled Rectorseal branded EP-200 Epoxy Putty products are chemical adhesives made from a class of synthetic thermosetting polymers containing epoxide groups and are used to join two or more objects together.

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

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Rectorseal branded EP-200 Epoxy Putty products include the reported finding based on the information available in the safety data sheet that the Epoxy Putty contains 1-Chloro-4 Trifluromethyl Bisphenol A Epoxy Resin.

This chemical is reportedly sensitising and can cause skin and eye irritation. In addition, the Epoxy Putty reportedly contains quartz that is Carcinogenic, an element that is suspected of causing Cancer. In this case, the required hazard pictograms and warnings are missing from the product’s labeling so users are not informed as to the risks of this product and how to minimize them.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, the recalled Rectorseal branded EP-200 Epoxy Putty products do not comply with the European Union’s Labelling and Packaging (“CLP”) Regulation.

Consequently, a recall of these recalled Rectorseal branded EP-200 Epoxy Putty products and a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace has been ordered.
