If you like to spin your teeth cle
an with the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Toothbrush, pay close attention to this:
The Food and Drug Administration has posted a warning about the brush, saying that parts of the toothbrush can pop off and cause your teeth to chip, get lodged in your throat, or fly off into your eye.
The Spinbrushes affected by the FDA warning include:
- Spinbrush ProClean
- Spinbrush ProClean Recharge
- Spinbrush Pro Whitening
- Spinbrush SONIC
- Spinbrush SONIC Recharge
- Spinbrush Swirl
- Spinbrush Classic Clean
- Spinbrush for Kids
- Spinbrush Replacement Heads
According to officials, adult versions of the Spinbrush have removable heads that are not supposed to come off during toothbrushing. But the FDA has receive reports that the brush head came off, which left the metal parts underneath exposed that could cause injuries by poking the person.
The kids’ Spinbrushes, on the other hand, don’t have removable heads but the FDA said it’s received reports of the batteries leaving burns, and the bristles coming off the toothbrush head and getting stuck in children’s tonsils.
If you use or have a Spinbrush in your bathroom, it’s my recommendation that you throw it out… or contact Arm & Hammer about being reimbursed for the recalled product.
