Recall Notice

Recall Notice

In order to protect our customers, and better serve our community, Alliance Chemical is issuing a recall in cooperation with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for the following products:

Name of Product: Sodium Hydroxide Flakes, Pure Lye, Caustic Soda Drain Cleaner (2 lb) and Sodium Hydroxide Flake (Caustic Soda Flake) (5 lb)


ISSUE: Products containing sodium hydroxide must be in child resistant packaging as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (PPPA). The packaging of our Sodium Hydroxide Flakes 2lb and 5lb variations were not child resistant, posing a risk of chemical burns and irritation to the skin and eyes. In addition, the label on the products violates the Federal Hazardous Substance Act (FHSA) by omitting the word “poison” and other mandatory information on the packaging.


We apologize for this packaging error and we want to make it right to our customers by replacing any 5lb bag variations with new containers, labels, child proof lids, and our 2lb variation with new child proof lids and labels.


We take the safety of our customers as our highest priority. If you have purchased either of the above listed products in question please contact us at 512-365-6838 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday, email [email protected], or online at and click on Recall Notice at the bottom of the page for more information.
