DuPont Recalls Heavy Duty Acidic Cleaner Due to Leaking Cap

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with DuPont, of Wilmington, Del., has announced a voluntary recall of DuPont's Heavy Duty Acidic Cleaner bottles. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Pressure can build up in a full or nearly full bottle of the acidic cleaner when it is stored in elevated temperatures over an extended period of time, which can result in the cleaner leaking from underneath the cap. If the product comes into contact with skin, it can cause severe skin irritation.

Manufactured in the United States, the recall affects about 20,000 units sold at Lowe's stores from March 2008 through Oct. 2008. Lowe's has received two reports of leaking bottles at two different Lowe's stores. One consumer reported temporary skin irritation. Another consumer reported skin peeling.

Heavy Duty Acidic Cleaner is used to clean ceramic and porcelain tile and grout. It was sold in silver-colored one quart plastic bottles. "DuPont" and "Heavy Duty Acidic Cleaner" are printed on the front of the bottle. UPC code 6-69009-71003-9 is printed on the back label.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bottles if there are signs of leakage. Even if there are no signs of leakage, consumers should use gloves when handling the recalled bottles and contact DuPont to receive a free replacement bottle cap. Consumers should not return the product to Lowe's.

For more information, contact DuPont toll-free at 888-241-2780 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit www.stonecare.dupont.com.
