System That Could Cause Toilets To Shatter Recalled

WASHINGTON (January 24, 2014) Flushmate, the maker of a high-pressure flushing system sold at Home Depot and Lowe's, is expanding its recall of the parts, because they can burst near a welded seam with force enough to shatter toilet tanks.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the company is recalling 351,000 units in the U.S. and about 9,400 units in Canada of the Series 503 Flushmate 111 Pressure Assist flushing systems, which were installed inside toilet tanks made from March 2008 through June 2009.

The move follows a recall in June 2009 of the same systems made from October 1997 through February 2008.

No injuries have been reported.

Flushmate of New Hudson, Mich., Is a division of Sloan Valve Co.
