Consumer Recalls: Instant Power Toilet Bowl Restorer + More

There have been several consumer recalls over the past couple of days that may affect Deal Seeking Mom readers. Please refer to the links included in each section for more details about the specific recalls:

Instant Power Toilet Bowl Restorer

Power Toilet Bowl Restorer cleaner, with model number 1803, has been recalled by Scotch Corporation, of Dallas, Texas because the contents can leak from the cap when the bottle is turned on its side. When this happens, the cleaner can come into contact with consumers and property, posing a risk of chemical burns and irritation to the skin and eyes. The model number is printed on the back of the bottle next to the barcode. The toilet bowl restoring product was sold in a grey plastic bottle with an orange cap. The words "Guaranteed" and "Toilet Bowl Restorer" are printed on the bottle. The recalled cleaner was sold at Menards, True Value Hardware, Ace Hardware, GEBO's and other retail stores nationwide between February 2009 and January 2010 for about $5.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Toilet Bowl Restorer and contact Scotch for disposal instructions and a full refund. For additional information, contact Scotch Corporation at (800) 613-4242 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website.

It's great see that this product is being recalled. But surely this defect should have been identified in product testing. Do corporations really need to wait to be told their products are unsafe?
