Flushmate broaden recall to defective flushing units with injury risks

An estimated 453,000 possibly faulty flushing systems are being recalled by Flushmate due to risks that it may burst and cause injuries to persons using it, an article of cpsc.gov reported on July 14.

According to the recall, the Flushmate III “Pressure-Assist Flushing Systems” may explode due to excessive pressure. Flushmate first issued a recall to their products in 2012 then another recall was issued in 2014. Consumers are at high risk of sustaining laceration injuries if they are struck by pieces of the broken tank due cause by the explosion. The recalling company and the CPSC have received two complaints of exploding flushing units that resulted in an injury and property damage. People who might have the products were told to stop using it and notify Flushmate to get a repair kit for free.
