WASHINGTON, D.C. – Redken is voluntarily recalling about 1 million cans of spray mousse foam because the containers may rupture.

The company says the Guts 10 Volume Spray Mousse Foam aerosol container’s liner can corrode over time, posing a risk of the cans rupturing and spewing its contents.

Redken has received 41 reports of cans rupturing. No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves Redken Guts 10 Volume Spray Mousse Foam sold in 10.58- and 2-ounce size cans. The hair styling product was sold in a silver container with black writing. “Redken and “10” are printed on the front of the product.

The product can be identified by a lot code printed on the bottom of the can. Lot codes included in the recall include:

  • Any can with lot codes that does not contain a G or H as the third digit
  • Any can with the following lot codes: 32G10Y, 32G11Y, 32G20Y, 32G21Y, 32G23Y, 32G40Y, 32G41Y, 32G60Y, 32G61Y, 32G62Y, 32G70Y

The product was sold at salons and beauty supply stores nationwide from January 1998 through February 2011 for between $4 and $16.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled mousse, record the product’s lot code, then discard the contents by spraying it into a waste container in a well ventilated area. Consumers should obtain the lot code from the container and contact Redken, prior to disposing of the can, for information on receiving a refund of the purchase price.
