August 30, 2012

Sherwin-Williams Co. said Tuesday that it is recalling about 98,400 cans of acrylic paint because some of the canisters are leaking, creating a potential fire hazard.

The company is recalling 12-ounce cans of Krylon Triple Thick Glaze and 11-ounce cans of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Crystal Clear acrylic paint with satin finish. The cans were sold at hardware stores between July 2011 and June 2012.

Sherwin-Williams said it has received 31 reports of leaking cans, which could pose a fire hazard if the cans are stored near an ignition source.

Sherwin-Williams said it has received reports of property damage caused by leaking paint, but no injuries have been reported.

The Cleveland company said customers should stop using the cans and contact it for a refund.

The cans have batch codes of HL1311FV, HL2081KL, or HL2081MN printed on the bottom. The cans bear the UPC code of 075577005000 or 724504035305.
