WASHINGTON (AP) -- Watch out for exploding toilets.

Flushmate, the maker of a high-pressure flushing system sold at Home Depot and Lowe's, is expanding its recall of the parts, because they can burst near a seam with force enough to shatter the toilet tank.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the company is recalling 351,000 toilets in the U.S. and about 9,400 toilets in Canada in the Series 503 Flushmate 111 Pressure Assist flushing systems.

The systems were installed inside toilet tanks that were made from March 2008 through June 2009.

There have been no reports of injuries.
