What’s the Problem?

This recall affects Rust-Oleum Professional Bright Galvanizing Compound Spray used to protect metal surfaces from rust and corrosion, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1].

“The bottom of the pressurized container can detach unexpectedly, posing an injury hazard,” CPSC said.

The 20-ounce can is silver with a silver cap. Only cans with product number 7584838 and batch code H0304A are affected by the recall. The product number and batch code are printed on either the top or the bottom of the can. The label on the can states “Rust-Oleum,” “Professional” and “Bright Galvanizing Compound.”

The recalled Rust-Oleum was sold at Lowe’s, Menards, and other hardware stores nationwide and online from March 2020 through October 2020 for about $10.

If you purchased any compounding spray that is affected by this recall, you should not use it and contact Rust-Oleum for a full refund. The company will give consumers information on how to safely dispose of the spray cans.

This recall began on January 6, 2021.

Rust-Oleum Class Action Lawsuit Settlement

In October 2016, Rust-Oleum reached a $9.3 million settlement with consumers who claim the company’s Deck & Concrete Restore and Restore 10X products did not perform as advertised.

Rust-Oleum introduced the Restore product line in 2013, claiming it was a long-lasting new-and-improved treatment. However, the 40 plaintiffs named in the class action alleged that after months of using Rust-Oleum Restore products, they began to bubble and peel away, leaving the decks looking worse than before applying the Restore.

Plaintiffs alleged that “Rust-Oleum knew or should have known that Restore would not live up to those promises” made in the company’s marketing and advertising for the products.

The lawsuit is In re: Rust-Oleum Restore Marketing Sales Practices and Products Liability Litigation, Case No. 1:15-cv-01364, in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.
