Flushing system recalls 2.3 million units

Better check your toilet. More than 2.3 million toilet flushing systems are being recalled after more than 300 people reported the units burst. 

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the pressure can lift the tank lid and shatter the tank.

There are reports of 14 impact or laceration injuries and property damage. 

So check inside your toilet tank and see if you have a series 503 Flushmate three pressure-assist flushing system. They were made between October 1997 and February 2008. 

They were sold at Lowe's, Home Depot and other stores.

If you have one, turn off the water to your toilet and contact Flushmate to request a free repair kit.
