Something explosive could happen to your toilet this week, and it has nothing to do with how much Chipotle you eat.

About 2.3 million toilets in the U.S. are being recalled because of a flaw in their flushing system that makes them randomly explode.

So for, at least 304 toilets have blown, and the rest could go at any time.  The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the explosions can cause, quote, “impact or laceration injuries.”

The toilets being recalled were made by seven major manufacturers between 1997 and 2008.  The manufacturers are American Standard, Crane, Kohler, Eljer, Mansfield, St. Thomas, and Gerber.

The CPSC says that if you think your toilet might be at risk, you should shut off the water to it and call 800-303-5123 for a repair kit.
