Nutrilife Plant Products of Canada is recalling about 15,300 one-gallon/four-liter bottles of hydrogen peroxide (H202) liquid 29% oxidizer sold in the U.S and Canada.
The bottle caps do not vent properly and can allow pressure to build up in the bottle and cause it to expand and rupture, posing fire and burn hazards.
The company has received one report of a fire resulting in minor property damage.
