Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves certain consumer-grade The Lye Guy Potassium Hydroxide and Sodium Hydroxide products, as follows:

  • The Lye Guy branded Potassium Hydroxide, a chemical product marketed, sold and delivered in 32-ounce clear plastic canisters with a white continuous thread lid closure and a white product identification label.
  • The Lye Guy branded Sodium Hydroxide, a chemical product marketed, sold and delivered in 32-ounce clear plastic canisters with a white continuous thread lid closure and a white product identification label.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation. One (1) additional image of the recalled chemical products can be found on the Web site listed above.

==> No barcodes, UPCs, NDCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

According to the CPSC, this recall was initiated because the products contain the chemicals Potassium Hydroxide or Sodium Hydroxide, two substances that must be sold, stored and dispensed in child resistant packaging as required by the US Poison Prevention Packaging Act (“PPPA”). The packaging of these products, however, is not child resistant, thus posing a risk of chemical burns and irritation to the skin, eyes, throat and GI tract, if swallowed, inhaled or placed on the skin. In addition, the label on these chemical products violates the US Federal Hazardous Substance Act (“FHSA”) by omitting the word “POISON” and other mandatory warning information on the packaging.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled The Lye Guy branded Sodium Potassium and/or The Lye Guy branded Sodium Hydroxide, please do not use them. Instead, kindly store the chemicals in a safe location out of sight and reach of children, preferable under lock and key, and contact The Lye Guy for free replacement child resistant packaging and as well as new warning labels. All known purchasers are being contacted directly by the company.

Please note: Disposal of this product must be in accordance with local municipal hazardous waste requirements to protect the drinking water supply and the ecosystem.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat oral injury, internal ingestion, GI tract laceration damage, bowel obstruction, developmental delays and/or long-term damage, reproductive delays and/or possible long-term damage, genetoxicity and mutagenicity.
