Sherwin-Williams and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission have announced a fabric protector spray recall for Krylon “Outdoor Spaces” aerosol coating. Exposure to the spray could cause serious respiratory injury for consumers.
Approximately 75,000 cans of the recalled Krylon “Outdoor Spaces” UV Fabric Protector spray were sold between January 2006 and September 2008 at Wal-Mart, Ace Hardware and other retail stores throughout the United States.
The aerosol spray was sold by Sherwin-Williams in 11-ounce cans under the “KRYLON” label. The front of the can features a picture of outdoor patio furniture with “Outdoor Spaces” and “UV Fabric Protector” printed on the label. They contain UPC Code 724504029007 and part number 2900 printed on the side of the can.
The Krylon spray is used to coat outdoor furniture and protect fabric from color fade, stains and wethering.
Overexposure to the fumes, vapor or spray mist could cause respiratory injury, and at least one consumer was hospitalized after using the product when he developed persistent coughing and difficulty breathing.
Consumers have been informed to immediately stop using the Krylon “Outdoor Spaces” UV Fabric Protector spray, and to return the product to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. Additional information can be obtained directly from the manufacturer, Sherwin-Williams Co. at (888) 304-3769.
