The following product safety alert is from the CPSC on January 21, 2015.

Mean Green® Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser and Mean Green® Industrial Strength Cleaner & Degreaser have been recalled because the products are labeled |Does not contain Ammonia." The products may contain ammonia. The mislabeling of the bottles can pose a chemical hazard to consumers. If ammonia is mixed with bleach or other household chemicals, irritating or toxic gases could be produced.
The recalled cleaning products came in white plastic spray bottles and white or green plastic containers. The words “Mean Green Super Strength Cleaner & Degreaser” or “Mean Green Industrial Strength Cleaner & Degreaser” are on a label on the front and the UPC number is on the back. The recall involves products with date codes 4225, 4226, 4227, 4228, 4229 and 4230. The date code is printed on the back of the bottle near the QR code. The recalled units include:

  Size UPC

Consumers who have a product with the UPC and date code should immediately discontinue use of the product and return it to the retailer for a replacement. Products were sold at Dollar General, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Fred’s, Walmart and small retailers nationwide from August 2014 to November 2014 for between $1 and $8.
