We have been advised by the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (equivalent to Trading Standards in the UK) that there is a potential safety hazard with the black plastic protective collar in the handle, located on the back of the trash can. It can become dislodged exposing a sharp metal edge, therefore posing a cut hazard.

Alternatively you can return the item to your nearest Costco Warehouse for a full refund at your earliest convenience.

We constantly strive to provide our Members with top quality goods & services. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused.
