news item image
A popular brand of spray paint has initiated a recall of some of its cans due to safety concerns.

The bottom of the cans containing Rust-Oleum’s Professional Galvanising Bright Compound Spray can detach unexpectedly, posing an injury hazard.

The firm has received six reports of the container bottom detaching, including one reported injury.

The product is used to protect metal surfaces from rust and corrosion. The 20-ounce can is silver with a silver cap. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), only those products with product number 7584838 and batch code H0304A are included in the recall. The label on the can states ‘Rust-Oleum’, ‘Professional’, and ‘Bright Galvanizing Compound’.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled aerosol paint and contact Rust-Oleum for a full refund, according to the CPSC. Rust-Oleum will give consumers information on how to safely dispose of the product.

Rust-Oleum’s Professional Galvanising Bright Compound Spray was sold at Lowe’s and online at Lowes.com, Menards, and other US hardware stores, from March 2020 to October 2020 for approximately $10 (€8.21).
