Among the many things not expected from a sitting bottle of water treatment: bursting open and causing a fire.
That risk has caused Nutrilife to recall 15,300 gallon bottles of 29 percent hydrogen peroxide.
The bottles have a cap problem. According to the recall notice, the caps don’t vent properly. This allows a pressure build-up in the bottle causing “it to expand and rupture, posing fire and burn hazards.” Nutrilife says there’s been one report of a fire, which caused “minor property damage.”
Hydrogen peroxide is used for several functions including preserving fresh cut flowers.
Never miss a local story.
Consumers should contact Nutrilife for replacement caps, safe handling and disposal of the bottles or a refund at 877-533-9572; 604-996-6609; 250-300-9455 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
