More than 850,000 aerosol cans of waterproofing wood protector spray are under recall because rust can form on the can, causing it to leak and become a fire hazard.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recall involves Thompson’s WaterSeal Waterproofing Wood Protector and Masonry Protector in aerosol cans
The contents can react with the package, causing rust on the can's seam. That could lead to pinhole leaks. If the leaking fluid comes into contact with a source of ignition, it could start a fire.
