Scotch Toilet Bowl Restorer Recall Issued Over Leaking Bottles

Nearly 75,000 bottles of Scotch Instant Power Toilet Bowl Restorer have been recalled because they can leak, which has led to property damage in some cases and poses a potential risk of chemical burns for consumers. 

The Scotch Instant Power Toilet Bowl Restorer recall was announced on March 22 after the manufacturer, Scotch Corporation, received at least seven reports of bottles leaking.

These leaks caused property damage, but no one injuries were reported in connection to the bottles. However, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warns that the chemicals leaking out of the bottles could potentially cause chemical burn injuries, as well as skin and eye irritation.
