Poly paint stripper 250ml

Selleys is recalling Poly Paint Stripper in 250ml cans sold at Bunnings Warehouse after December 2018 and with a batch number that starts with 9.  The batch number is printed on the top of the can.

Defect: The neck on the spout of the can may come apart from the body, resulting in the product leaking out.

Hazard: If the product container comes apart at the neck during handling, it may spill and come into contact with the skin or eyes of the user.  If this occurs, irritation may result.  First aid instructions are provided on the container, and advise flushing with water for several minutes.

What to do: Consumers should put on latex or rubber gloves and check the batch number of any Poly Stripper 250 ml cans they have, to see if the batch number starts with 9.  The batch number is printed on the lid of the product.  If the batch number starts with 9, still wearing the gloves, tape the lid to the can with duct tape or other similar tape, place the can in a plastic bag and in a box or carton in an upright position.  Transport the can in the upright position to return it to the nearest Bunnings store for a full refund.
