Scotch Corp. recalled about 74,760 bottles of Instant Power Toilet Bowl Restorer because its cap can leak when the bottle is turned on its side. The liquid may harm surfaces and potentially cause chemical burns to consumers, the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission said.

So far no one has been hurt, but Scotch received seven reports of the bottles leaking and damaging property, CPSC said. The toilet bowl cleaner was sold in stores nationwide including Menards, True Value Hardware, Ace Hardware and Gebo's between February 2009 and January 2010 for about $5 per bottle.
