Urine Trouble

Paint maker Valspar and UK retailer B&Q have agreed to pay to repaint customer’s homes after the paint they purchased came with an unwanted side effect: it smelled like cat pee. Some people likened it to more of a dead animal odour. Regardless, the warmer the weather, the worse the smell got.
It’s believed that a batch of paint cans were afflicted with a bacterial infection that, once it was applied to walls began to off-gas hydrogen sulphide, which is usually described as “rotten eggs” smell.
One microbiologist suggested ever-tightening EU restrictions on the use of preservatives in products could be partly to blame for the problem.
