WASHINGTON, D.C. - CPSC, Jomaps Inc. of Alpharetta, Ga., is voluntarily recalling approximately 14,000 quart and 11,000 gallon sizes of their M-1 Deck & Roof Cleaner. The product, which contains high levels of sodium hydroxide, was not packaged in accordance with the Federal Hazardous Substances Act.

The product, which can cause severe burns to the skin and eyes, lacked necessary warning labels, cautions for use, and guidelines for appropriate first aid in the event of an accident. To date, Jomaps Inc. and CPSC have not received reports of accidents or injuries associated with the deck and roof cleaner. The company initiated the recall after CPSC laboratory analysis showed that the M-1 Deck & Roof Cleaner had high levels of sodium hydroxide.

The M-1 Deck & Roof Cleaner was sold from March 1994 to March 1995 at Home Depot stores nationwide and at a few small paint stores. The liquid cleaner, which sold in one-quart plastic bottles for about $5 and in one-gallon cans for about $21, was packaged with a yellow and red label that read in part "M-1 Deck Roof 'CLEANER'...Concentrate... Cleans & Restores...DANGER Eye & Skin Irritant...See additional cautions on back panel." Captioned photos of cedar shake shingles, a treated pine deck, and an asphalt shingle roof appear on the front of the label.

Consumers should immediately discontinue use of the item and return it to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information, consumers should call Jomaps Inc. toll free at (800) 966-6175 for more information.

Jomaps Inc. has altered the packaging to comply with the Federal Hazardous Substances Act. Products with the new label are currently sold in stores.
