Affected bottle caps do not vent properly and can allow pressure to build up inside the bottle and cause it to expand and rupture, posing fire and burn hazards, according to a Recall Notice issued Wednesday by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
The recall involves Nutrilife Plant Products one gallon/four-liter bottles of hydrogen peroxide (H202) liquid 29% oxidizer. The plastic bottles are white with a blue/green label with a handle at the top. The Nutrilife logo, H202, Liquid 29% Oxidizer and “An Oxygen Source for Water” are printed on the front label.
These products were manufactured by Nutrilife Plant Products, of Canada, and sold at plant food and hydroponic stores across the U.S. from November 2016 through July 2017 for about $33.
Nutrilife hydrogen peroxide is used as a source of oxygen for water, a preservative for fresh cut flowers, and to keep unwanted nutrient residuals clear in reservoirs, drippers, and dripper lines.
If you purchased any recalled hydrogen peroxide, you should stop using them immediately and contact Nutrilife for safe handling instructions. The company will provide a free replacement bottle cap or a full refund, as well as instructions on how to destroy the defective bottles.
To date, Nutrilife has received at least one report of a fire resulting in minor property damage associated with the recalled products.
