People have been urged to follow the safety instructions outlined on the packaging and dispose of the contents down the sink with fast running water.

Empty bottles should then be rinsed and returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

The recalled bleach was sold at independent retailers around the country, including IGA, Friendly Grocer and Foodworks between 1 November 2017 – 14 March 2018.
