A popular garden product sold at Bunnings across Australia is being recalled due to faulty packaging which could put gardeners’ health at risk.
The five-litre refill packs of Roundup F Weedkiller Fast, Roundup T Weedkiller Tough and Roundup P Weedkiller Path have been recalled by Product Safety Australia.
“Due to packaging damage, there is a risk that the user may be exposed to the contents of the product,” Product Safety Australia said.

“Exposure to the product may cause serious eye irritation.”
The three types of pesticide were sold at Bunnings stores across Australia between March 1 and September 16.
Product Safety Australia said consumers should stop using the affected product if they have it at home to contact the Evergreen Garden Care Consumer Advice Line.
A spokesperson for Evergreen Garden Care, the producer of Roundup, said it has followed all necessary steps concerning the recall.
“All issues were resolved quickly and resulted in the production of improved packaging and transport cartons for the product, which will be restocked in retail stores this week,” the spokesperson said.
“Evergreen Garden Care and its stockists have not been notified of any consumer incidents relating to the product.”
