RECALL—Certain AirWick Air Freshener Cans Could Explode
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warns consumers of a potential problem with some AirWick Air Freshener cans. The cans could rupture due to a mistake during manufacturing.
A batch of AirWick Air Freshener cans is missing a very important corrosion inhibitor which can lead to the corrosion of the cans.
The AirWick cans can rupture causing the expulsion of the contents. The release of the contents could cause "injury and laceration hazards". Also, a leaking can could cause eye irritation.
