    Liquid Plumr Recalled Over Faulty Child-Resistant Caps
    The Clorox Company recalled three of its Liquid Plumr products on July 14, 2016 after it discovered that these products had faulty child-resistant packaging.

    Clorox is recalling three kinds of Liquid Plumr due to faulty child-resistant bottle caps and the threat they pose to children, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    The three products are:

    • Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Foaming Clog Fighter
    • Liquid Plumr Pro-Strength Urgent Clear 
    • Liquid Plumr Industrial Strength Urgent Clear
    The company is voluntarily recalling about 5.4 million of the products after receiving eight reports of faulty child-resistant caps and 221 reports of bottles leaking. No injuries have been reported.
    These products contain sodium hydroxide and are required to be sealed with child-resistant packaging by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
    The products have been sold at Dollar General, Family Dollar, HEB, Home Depot, Kroger, Lowe’s, Meijer, Publix, Rite-Aid, Target, Walgreens, Walmart and other dollar, grocery, hardware and mass merchandise stores nationwide and online from January 2012 to May 2016.
    People are being asked to contact Clorox's call center at 855-490-0705 for disposal and refund instructions.
