Rust-Oleum Corp. has recalled 84,000 cans of fluorescent pink inverted marking spray paint because the valve can pop off forcefully, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced.

The product affected: Rust-Oleum Professional Fluorescent Pink Marking Paint in 15-ounce metal spray cans. The paint is typically used to mark where underground utilities are buried, or mark areas such as construction zones or athletic fields. The Illinois-based company has received complaints of the valve and cap detaching unexpectedly and paint to splatter. No one has reported an injury.

The paint was sold from April through July 2023 through Amazon, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Menards and hardware stores nationwide. It cost about $10.
