Sharp Industrial Chemical Supply, Inc., Fails To Properly Package Antifreeze

Washington, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Sharp Industrial Chemical Supply, Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of one-gallon containers of "Proven Value Antifreeze" distributed by Sharp.

This recall is being undertaken because gallon-sized containers of "Proven Value Antifreeze" were distributed with incorrect labeling and without the child-resistant closures (CRCS) required by federal law.

The Commission is aware of no cases of accidental ingestion of "Proven Value Antifreeze." However, the Commission said, the recall is in the public interest to preclude the possibility of such ingestion. If a child ingests ethylene glycol, a serious injury or death could result if first aid treatment is not administered immediately. The American Association of Poison Control Centers estimated there were 1.4 million childhood poison exposures in 1983. These findings were based on Poison Control Center reports. This figure is too high and the Commission will continue to pursue its goal of significantly reducing childhood poison exposures.

"Proven Value Antifreeze" has been sold principally in Texas, New Mexico and Louisiana. In 1985, approximately 106,000 gallons were distributed.

Consumers who have unused containers of "Proven Value Antifreeze" should return the containers to the place of purchase and request replacement units and/or approved CRCS to be affixed to these containers.

Extreme care should be taken to keep these containers out of reach of children until such time as they can be returned to place of purchase.
