Redken 5th Avenue NYC is recalling about 1 million spray mousse foam cans.
The aerosol container's liner can corrode over time, posing a risk of the cans rupturing and expelling its contents, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission in an announcement made in cooperation with Redken.
Redken has received 41 reports of cans rupturing. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Mousse Foam sold in 10.58- and 2-ounce size cans.
The hair styling product was sold in a silver container with black writing. "Redken" and "10" are printed on the front of the product. The product can be identified by a lot code printed on the bottom of the can. Lot codes included in this recall include:
- Any can with lot codes that don’t contain a G or H as the third digit.
- Any can with the following lot codes: 32G10Y, 32G11Y, 32G20Y, 32G21Y, 32G23Y, 32G40Y, 32G41Y, 32G60Y, 32G61Y, 32G62Y, and 32G70Y.
Manufactured in United States, the mousse was sold at hair salons and beauty supply stores nationwide from January 1998 through February 2011 for $4 to $16.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mousse, record the product's lot code, and discard the contents by spraying it into a waste container in a well-ventilated area, the commission advises. Consumers should then contact Redken for information on receiving a refund.
