Call for withdrawal of cleaner
Saturday 28 August 1993
TRADING standards officers yesterday called for Mr Muscle oven cleaner to be withdrawn after reports of users being burnt. Local authority officials were said to have been concerned for some time that labelling on the cleaner was not making people fully aware of the harm it could cause.
However, a number of supermarket chains yesterday said they had decided not to withdraw the cleaner after receiving safety assurances from the maker, S C Johnson of Camberley, Surrey.
Reports of three women in North Yorkshire suffering serious burns after coming into contact with Mr Muscle have come to light in the past two days. Two women needed skin grafts. Trading standards officers know of nine other people who have been injured by the spray.
