January 21, 2010 – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Conair Corp., of Stamford, Conn., today announced a voluntary recall of Lysol Steam Cleaning Mops.
This recall involves the Lysol Steam Cleaning Mop by Conair with model numbers SM10L or SM10LR. The model number is printed on the bottom of the mop under the microfiber cloth.
Hot water mixed with Lysol can forcefully spurt out and rupture the housing unit, posing a burn hazard and a laceration hazard to consumers from the broken housing unit.
Conair has received 14 reports of hot water forcefully spilling out of the water reservoir compartment including two minor burn injuries to consumers who sought medical attention.
Approximately 162,000 mops have been sold at department, drug, hardware and home improvement stores and mass merchandisers nationwide and on the internet from September 2006 through September 2009 for about $40.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
