January 22, 2013

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Cabot Stains, a division of Valspar Corp. Newburyport, MA, announced a voluntary recall of Cabot’s Wood Cleaner and Wood Brightener in containers with a spray pump. Approximately 17,500 units of the Wood Cleaner and 10,900 units of the Wood Brightener were named in the recall.

According to the manufacturer, the spray pump used for both products can lose its seal, causing the product to leak. Chemicals in these products can cause burning or other serious injuries if the product comes into contact with skin or eyes or is ingested.Three incidents of leaks have been reported. No injuries have been reported. Both products come in 1.3 gallon white handle tanks with black pump assembly and sprayer hose. The front has a yellow Cabot label with the product name. The back panel label contains instructions for use and product information and UPC codes 080351810503 on the Wood Cleaner bottles and 080351810497 on the Wood Brightener bottles.

The SKUs were sold at Ace Hardware, Do It Best, Farm & Fleet, Lowe’s Home Improvement Stores, United Hardware and other hardware stores nationwide from March 2011 until June 2012.
