June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The Solaris Group today asked consumers to assist in a voluntary limited recall of certain mislabeled ORTHO(R) MULTIPURPOSE FUNGICIDE DACONIL 27870 in green plastic one-pint containers.
Recalled product has a DACONIL label on the front of the container, with a label for SEVIN(R) LIQUID BRAND CARBARYL INSECTICIDE 2 on the back of the container.
The recall is being conducted primarily because the eye irritation potential of the DACONIL product is much greater than the SEVIN product; the label for SEVIN does not provide the appropriate precautionary eye statements.
For example, the SEVIN label does not instruct consumers to wear long pants and gloves when applying product, whereas the DACONIL label does.
