Krud Kutter Adhesive Remover Recalled Due to Packaging Issues
An adhesive remover is being recalled by the manufacturer because it fails child safety standards.
Krud Kutter Inc. announced this week that it would be recalling Krud Kutter Decal & Adhesive Remover and Krud Kutter Ultra Power Specialty Adhesive Remover. The packaging for these items is not child resistant as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act and the labeling on the product violates the Federal Hazardous Substances Act because it does not warn of the hazard presented. The adhesive remover contains petroleum distillates, which pose aspiration and poisoning hazards if swallowed.
The recalled adhesive removers have product numbers PU08, UP08, UP16, and UP32 and were manufactured from October 2014 to July 2015. The product numbers can be found on the product label on the back of the product under the Krud Kutter Inc. contact information. The date codes are printed on the back of the bottle in black ink above the label.
For a list of the specific date codes that are subject to the recall, see the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled adhesive removers and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
The company has received no reports of incident or injury in connection with this defect.
Consumers could purchase the product at The Home Depot and other paint and hardware stores nationwide and online between October 2014 and September 2015 for $5 to $20 each.
