Lysol Steam Mop Recall
This week the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of approximately 162,000 Lysol Steam Cleaning Mops made by the Conair Corporation of Stamford, Connecticut. The recall was issued after it was realized that hot water can rupture the housing of the steam mop and pose a burn hazard as it shoots out. Additionally, the ruptured housing unit may pose a laceration hazard.
Conair has received at least 14 reports of hot water forcefully shooting out of the water reservoir of the Lysol steam mop. These reports included two minor burn injuries which required the consumers to seek medical attention.
The recall applies to the Lysol Steam Cleaning Mop by Conair, model numbers SM10L and SM10LR. The model number appears on the bottom of the mop beneath the microfiber cloth. The recalled steam mops were sold at many different department stores, drug stores, hardware stores, home improvement stores, Internet stores, and mass merchandisers across the country between September 2006 and September 2009. The steam mops sold for approximately $40. They were made in China.
If you have a Conair Lysol Steam Mop with model number SM10L or SM10LR, stop using the mop immediately to avoid possible burn injury. Contact Conair at 1-800-687-6916 during normal business hours or visit www.conair.com/recallmop to receive your free replacement steam cleaning mop.
