CO2 canisters are being recalled by Soda Sense due to injury hazard

Soda Sese CO2 Canisters Recalled Due to Injury HazardSoda Sense is recalling about 19,200 Soda Sense CO2 canisters.

A valve in the canister can break, allowing CO2 to forcefully eject the top valve, posing an injury hazard to consumers.

Soda Sense has received 18 reports of the canister’s top valve ejecting, resulting in minor property damage, such as damage to the home soda machine if the canister was in the machine when the valve broke. Or when the valve in the canister broke, damage was caused to surrounding property such as glasses, plates, or other fragile items if knocked into by the machine, the valve, or the canister.

No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves type 2 Soda Sense 0.6 liter CO2 canisters sold through the Soda Sense mail order exchange program. The metal, cylinder canisters are silver with a black cap.

The Soda Sense logo appears on the front of each canister. Only those cylinders with two indented rings on the bottom are the subject of this recall.

The canisters were sold online at www.SodaSense.com from May 2020 through June 2020 for about $21.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled canisters, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise, and contact Soda Sense to receive a free replacement canister, including shipping. Soda Sense is contacting all known purchasers directly.

For more information, call Soda Sense at 855-209-4997 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email safety@sodasense.com, or visit www.SodaSense.com and click on Product Safety at the bottom of the page.
