Redken Mousse Recall Issued Due to Risk of Can Rupturing

About 1 million bottles of Redken Guts 10 spray mousse have been recalled from stores after reports of dozens of cans exploding. 

The Redken mousse recall was announced on April 12 by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after Redken received at least 41 reports of cans rupturing, gushing out their contents. Although there have been no injuries reported in connection with the defective Redken spray mousse aerosol cans, this does pose a risk for consumers.

The CPSC reports that the aerosol cans’ liners can corrode over time, creating a risk that the cans may rupture.

Philips DreamStation, CPAP and BiPAP machines sold in recent years may pose a risk of cancer, lung damage and other injuries.

The recall affects about 1 million units of Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Mousse Foam in the 10.58-ounce and 2-ounce cans. The recall includes any cans with lot codes that do not contain G or H as the third digit and the following lot codes: 32G10Y, 32G11Y, 32G20Y, 32G21Y, 32G23Y, 32G40Y, 32G41Y, 32G60Y, 32G61Y, 32G62Y, and 32G70Y. The cans are silver with black writing and have “Redken” and “10” printed on the front. The lot codes are printed on the bottom of the cans.

The defective Redken spray mousse cans were sold at hair salons and beauty supply stores across the U.S. from January 1998 through February 2011 for between $4 and $16.

The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the spray mousse cans, copy the product’s lot code and then empty the can into a waste container in a well-ventilated area before discarding it. Consumers can use the lot code to contact Redken for information on how to receive a refund. Customers can call Redken at 1-888-241-9504.

    Last night, around 2 am I was awake by a loud noise. Apparently, a can of Guts10 exploded under my bathroom sink, blowing open the cabinet door and spraying Gut10 product everywhere.

Metal pieces everywhere destroyed other toiletries stored in the bathroom cabinet along with blowing a huge hole through a wooden basket, damaging the cabinets and everything else under the sink. Not to mention the disgusting smell and atrocious mess to be cleaned. I am sure this bottle is newer than 2011. This is scary, sharp metal pieces everywhere. Thank God me or either of my two small children were not in there when this happened. I will never buy another Redken products in my entire life.

    Just started my shower today when I heard an explosion and crashing sounds. Redken can on the floor with a hole on the bottom part of the side of the can. Cabinet , walls, floor and toiletry items covered in liquid. Still shaking from the shock. I thought that something had crashed through the ceiling or that pipes had burst.

After all of the bottles and cans were cleaned up as well as the floor and 360 degrees of mess in the cabinet, I took photos of the ripped apart Redken bottle and Googled “Redken explosion” and here is where I landed. Incredible. I heard of aerosols exploding in a fire, but never without a reason. That is super dangerous.

I had spent days trying to find out what had caused that terrifying bang when I went under my sink to get some product and saw what had happened. This can was purchased more recently than 2011 and the lot number on the bottom of the can looks like GD346EZ, and below it is 20:49.

    I was in my bathroom when a can of Redken mousse Guts 10 had exploded in the closet behind me. I was not injured but it scared me half to death! It made a hellacious mess ruining some containers of color and sprays that were on the shelf next to it.

  • RebeccaSeptember 24, 2020 at 12:54 am

    I just found an exploded can of the Redken Guts 10 in my linen cupboard. It also exploded another Redken product and damaged some other haircare product containers. My can had a different number than the ones they identified (G8161C--although the 8 could also be a 'B'). I was shocked that the original recall was so many years ago. I don't know how long I've had this can.

The plastic bin the mousse had been stored in was broken to bits on one end and everything in the cupboard was coated with little white flakes, with liquid on the shelving and inside other plastic storage bins. I feel fortunate after reading the damage some people had. I can’t even image the noise the explosion must have made! I’d never heard of the recall or read about this before so I was pretty shocked.

    I had a Redken guts/mousse can explode at 10:45 pm on August 9, 2020. It sounded like a gun shot. It blew the can wide open and the contents flew everywhere. It was a real mess. Everything in my vanity closet and my carpet was covered in the sticky debris.

I’m never buying any Redken product again!

The next day I was in one of our bathrooms and noticed the bottom drawer of our vanity was open. I tried to close it and found it was off the track. When I really looked inside I found dried product ALL OVER inside the drawer. Laying in the midst of it all was the gray can of Gut 10 Mousse with the side of the can blown out of it. The force of the explosion was strong enough to blow the drawer open and off the track. In addition it blew the back of the drawer completely off!!! I am grateful that I or one of my granddaughters was not trying to use the product when this happened. If you have this product in your home please get rid of it immediately.

    A can of the mousse exploded yesterday while I was at work and when I opened the closet door all of my hair products came falling out. There was a large hole in the sheetrock in the wall and there were pieces of sheetrock and white powder and sticky mousse everywhere. Luckily no one was hurt.

My neighbors dog (I live in a condo) was freaking out for about 10 minutes, it was that loud. This has been going on since 2011? I worked in a salon for a while that carried the product and never heard of this issue till now.

    I was sitting watching TV with my two pups along side me & a boom went off. I went outside with a flashlight looking up and down the driveway , went down to the basement & was shocked to find the linen closet door open with a disaster in side. The Redkin can was split from top to bottom and pieces were all over with a horrible chemical smell. This would have maimed someone if they were near it.[Show More]I was sitting watching TV with my two pups along side me & a boom went off.

    A can of this mousse just blew out the back of my wardrobe. I thought the chimney had fallen on the house. Shelves broken, brackets shattered. What a mess.

  • DeeJune 1, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    My can exploded last night inside my bathroom cabinet. Luckily I had the door open or I think it would have blown the doors off.

  • ThomasMay 21, 2019 at 1:36 pm

    I experienced an explosion the other night. The can was in my daughter's room and it made quite a mess. I was fortunate to avoid stepping on any of the sharp shrapnel, and had quite a mess to clean up. I still have the can. I had never heard of any recall.

  • BobbyMay 19, 2019 at 9:01 pm

    So this has been going on since 2011? And there are still cans exploding like bombs? I call BS.

I had just put mouse (another brand) on my hair when there was a loud explosion. The Guts 10 can had exploded and went all over me and the bathroom. I had to shampoo again. Also, went to doctor with eye problems, irritated skin on face, and roaring in ear. I have a scratch on cornea of eye. Also, knocked hole in Sheetrock in bathroom as well as causing a split in one of the shelves. There is mousse all over the entire bathroom. Also, there are pieces of metal from the can and pieces of adhesive from the lining on the floor, walls and every item in the bathroom. It knocked caps off of bottles and broke a bottle of perfume, which also went everywhere. I did not know about the recall. I really like Redken products, but I am now afraid of them. Who knows what might happen with the other products. I could have very easily been blinded. Hopefully, my eyes and ear will heal. It will take some time for my nerves to settle down. I am afraid of all my hair products now.

  • MollieMay 5, 2019 at 4:51 am

    Oh my goodness! I had no idea about this recall, but I came home from a week long vacation to find that my can of Redken Guts spray had exploded in my bathroom cabinet. I am so thankful that my 2 young daughters and myself were not injured in the explosion! I Googled Redken can exploding because I couldn’t believe what I found. The bottle literally exploded. You should see the pictures!

It blew the door open, caused a shelf to come down, and blew out everything in the cabinet tower that was on that shelf and below. I had quite the mess on my hands as products were blown a good six feet away. I do have a concern and that is a few new cans of hairspray are dented as well as a volumizing spray. Does that put them at risk for exploding? That is a concern.

  • KevinMarch 29, 2019 at 1:30 am

    Our daughter has been out of the house for a number of years, so I was very surprised when I went into her bathroom and found the vanity doors were blown open and almost everything under the sink was laying all over the floor along with a burst can of Redken 10 product. What a mess, the only good thing was that no one was around when the can exploded.

  • AnitaMarch 18, 2019 at 11:30 am

    Redken Guts exploded in our cabinetry. Door flew open, other bottles & stuff flew out onto the countertop & floors. Sticky hair product everywhere. Major mess to clean up. My husband thought that a tree hit our house.

    September 8, 2018. . Had not heard about a recall nor read about these problems. This product is still being sold! We we're awakened by a loud explosion and found that a Redken Guts 10 had exploded on a bathroom shelf with enough force to knock at least a dozen other products off the shelf. What a mess, but thankful no one was in the bathroom at the time of the exosion.

My dresser mirror had something apparently looked to be smeared all over it as well as the top of my dresser. Come to find out I had a bottle of Redken Guts 10 that had exploded. It broke the bottom left side of my dresser mirror. I do not want to sue Redken over the situation but do feel that they should be held responsible for what their product has done to my dresser as well as all of the others that had incidents where it caused damage to their homes. I thought OMG what if I had been holding the can when it exploded, sleeping in my bed which is close by my dresser or getting ready for work that could have really done a lot of harm to me. I will NEVER purchase another REKEN product again . I never saw or heard anything about a recall on the product. I will be contacting REKEN.

It was a mess, but more importantly it was scary...as I didn't know what had happened. I later learned about the Guts 10 and found shrapnel from the exploded can everywhere. I kept the largest piece for evidence.

Sounded like a bomb just went off in the bedroom. Went and looked and we were shocked - looked like a bomb went off. Blew the doors almost off the vanity cabinet, glass shattered throughout the bedroom and bath, stuff everywhere. Have never seen anything like it. The cause? Redken Guts 10. Unbelievable the amount of damage to the cabinet, wall, shower, etc., not to mention that the area is now condemned for the night. Seriously thought it was an explosion of the house. Will never forget it, and we know one thing, we will go through everything in the house tomorrow and toss out anything that has Redken on it. Was not given any notice of a recall. They shouldn't even be allowed to sell their products anymore. Picture can't even begin to be described, however we have several as well as videos. It blew not only the cabinet and it's contents all over, however also went under door to the latrine, on the bed, and throughout the bedroom, so I guess we won't be in there tonight. This is crap. I can only thank GOD that I had waited the extra 5 minutes to wash my face and brush my teeth, and had decided to wait until the show I was washing was over. Redken needs to go!!!

My first thought was to check the rest of the house for any other vandalism and to check the garage to make sure my wife’s car was still there. Thankfully, everything else was alright. Back to the bathroom … what a mess! Long story short – an old can of Redken Guts 10 (aerosol) Spray Mousse had exploded! Lot # EX322C 14:05 UPC # 43877 05794 3 It blew a mirrored door completely off a bathroom cabinet and scattered the cabinet’s contents throughout the small bathroom. Less than an hour before that my wife had been in the direct line of fire. Thank God she had somewhere else to be when it happened! When the Redken blew, it tore open a couple plastic product bottles. One of them was a pink Caladryl lotion. The pink splatter throughout the room was a pretty good indication of just how intense the explosion had been. I wasn’t terribly surprised to find we were not the first. Redken had issued a recall more than five and a half years ago – April 12, 2011. Somehow, we didn’t get that memo. Unfortunately, these cans are still out there and still exploding. Comments on this page indicate at least six others have exploded since last June. And these are just the ones that were here. Obviously, the problem still exists.

All 3 mirrors were swung open and chunks of the wood and brackets holding the shelves were in bits and pieces on the vanity and floor. You could see where something liquid had run down along the walls, even up to 6 feet away. Sticky dried stuff was all over the floor. As I examined the contents from the cabinet, I found the can of Redkin 10 Guts volume spray foam still standing in the top right corner of cabinet (it was stuck to the shelf with the sticky stuff even as the cabinet was hanging off of the wall!), but the top little spray nozzle, the tube from inside, and the whole top round piece had exploded off and was on the counter and in the sink. The plastic lid was ripped apart into many little pieces laying all through out the shelf and floor. Luckily, the bottom brackets had held the cabinet up or the whole cabinet would have been in the floor with broken mirrors. Im just glad we weren't home at the time and no one was injured. The mess to clean up and replacement of cabinet was enough to have to deal with!

    I was washing my face in the sink when there was a tremendous explosion in the small closet behind me. A Redken Guts 10 can had exploded and sprayed its contents inside the closet. The top of the can was blown off and sent flying inside the closet. Luckily, the can itself was intact and no metal fragments had been spewed outward and I was not injured.

    As with everyone else, a can of Redken Guts 10 exploded under our sink last night. Same results, blew the doors open on our cabinet, destroyed several other bottles of product, and made a hell of a mess. Nobody was harmed, screwed up a good nights sleep. We are thankful that my wife wasn't holding on to the can when this happened. It could have seriously injured her.

    I just had a can of Redken Mousse to explode in my bathroom closet. Sounded like a bomb. It dented a can of hair spray that was sitting on the shelf and blew open bottles of shampoo, etc. My bathroom closed is a mess, with mousse everywhere. Glad no one got hurt. This is way dangerous. My last Redken purchase for sure.

  • LauraJune 4, 2015 at 4:53 am

    I was laying in bed tonight and there was a loud explosion from my bathroom. Exactly what Susan and Glenn reported. Blew my cabinet doors open..broken and dented products. Even dented my Sheetrock inside the cabinet. I have two cans of red ken guts. One silver with black lettering which didn't explode and a white can with black and blue lettering which blew up like a bomb. Scarey.

  • GlennJune 2, 2015 at 11:21 pm

    I came home to find a can of Redken Mousse exploded, just like Susan reports above. It was in a cabinet under the sink. The can was ripped into two parts, half of it still inside the cabinet and half of it on the bathroom floor. About a third of the contents of the cabinet had been blow out onto the floor of bathroom, meaning that the cabinet doors had been blown open. Got some interesting photos.

Where do i go from here. I took pictures of the large bruise on my arm. And have proof of the can,it's codes, everything.

  • DebraApril 19, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    I just read the recall information about the Redken hair product which I happen to have in my possession. I called the number listed on the web for questions and naturally, got a recording. Why should I attempt to empty the contents of the can "in a well-ventilated area" when the item may burst under pressure???? Is that not why there is a recall??? Only in Americacould this happen.
