The Office of Fair Trading is advising the public that Ecover is recalling bottles of Ecover Zero Non Bio Laundry Liquid 1.5 litres with two specific batch codes due to a safety concern.
OFT have said it is aware that a small number of the affected bottles have been sold locally. Ecover is taking this safety risk very seriously, and is recalling affected bottles from retailers and consumers immediately.
The affected bottles contain potassium hydroxide at hazardous levels that can cause the bottle to leak.
Contact with the liquid could result in harm to skin and eyes, including causing skin burns or eye damage. Ecover strongly advises consumers to not to open or use the product until they can confirm that their product is not affected.
Since only certain bottles of this product are affected, consumers can check whether they have an affected bottle and to organise careful collection and a refund by going to www.ecoverukrecall.com
