Product recall
Wilko apply to rust smooth silver metal paint 250 ml
Item code: 0466017/0
Affected batch: 447356

Rust paint

We have recently become aware of a potential safety issue with a batch of our Wilko apply to rust silver metal paint 250 ml. We have identified that the paint is reacting with a contaminant and the resulting build-up of pressure is causing the lids to 'pop' off with force.

What you should do

  • if you have purchased the affected batch please return it to a Wilko store, taping the lid down safely and securely and 'double bagging' the tin to minimise the risk of damage (please ensure the tin is kept upright at all times)
  • the batch is printed on the lid - please take care when viewing by holding the lid down securely
  • we are aware that a small number of tins do not have clearly printed batch details - if you are in any doubt about the batch you have purchased, as a precaution please return the product to a Wilko store

Rust paint

Please note this recall only applies to batch number 447356. No other colours are affected.

Nothing matters more to us than our customer safety so if you've purchased this product from us, please return it to any of our stores for a full refund of the purchase price.

If you have any questions, please contact your local Wilko store or call the Wilko Customer Care Team free on: 08000 329 329

We wish to thank you for your cooperation and apologise for any inconvenience.
