Last week, Redken announced that it is recalling its Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Mousse Foam after receiving dozens of reports of the cans exploding. In total, Redken is recalling approximately 1 million units in response to 41 reports of the cans rupturing. As a Pembroke Pines Products Liability Attorney, I don’t see the potential for personal injury lawsuits as a result of this recall, because there haven’t been any injuries reported. Anytime there is a recall and injuries can be avoided it is always a plus; the defective product gets taken off the shelves and no one is injured in the process.
According the CPSC Redken Guts Spray Mousse Recall Report, the company initiated the recall because “the aerosol container’s liner can corrode over time, posing a risk of the cans rupturing and expelling its contents.” The CPSC and Redken announced the voluntary recall last week. As a Pembroke Pines Personal Injury Attorney, I commend Redken for moving rather swiftly with this recall, especially given the large quantity of product in question.
Anyone who owns this product should check the lot code on the bottom of their can and compare it with the list of recalled cans in the CPSC’s report. It is important to follow the CPSC’s recall guidelines in order to avoid any potential injuries. From a Pembroke Pines Products Liability Lawyer’s perspective, while this defective product might not pose the most severe injury risk, it is still important to avoid using it because it is not worth the potential consequences. If the can ruptures, the contents inside will also explode everywhere, which is inconvenient to say the least. Thus, hopefully this recall is completed smoothly and safely.
