Some 250ml cans of Poly Paint Stripper
Sold at Bunnings Warehouse
The neck on the spout of the 'can' may come apart from the body, resulting in the paint stripper leaking out.
If the paint stripper comes into contact with your skin and eyes, irritation may result. The first aid instructions provided on the container that advise flushing with water for several minutes should be followed.
What to do
Put on latex or rubber gloves and check the batch number (printed on the lid of the product) of any of your 250ml cans.
If the batch number starts with 9, while still wearing the gloves, tape the lid to the can with duct tape or other similar tape, place the can in a plastic bag and in a box or carton in an upright position and return it to the nearest Bunnings store for a refund.
