A valve in the canister can break, allowing CO2 to forcefully eject the top valve, posing an injury hazard to consumers.
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 (2) indented rings on the bottom are the subject of this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled canisters and contact SODA SENSE to receive a free replacement canister, including shipping. SODA SENSE is contacting all known purchasers directly.
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 to surrounding property like glasses, plates or other fragile items if knocked into by the machine, the valve or the canister. No injuries have been reported.
This recall was conducted, voluntarily by the company, under CPSC’s Fast Track Recall process. Fast Track recalls are initiated by firms, who commit to work with CPSC to quickly announce the recall and remedy to protect consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
