CPSC, Castrol North America Inc. Announce Recall of Super Clean Aerosol Foam

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Castrol North America Inc. of Wayne, N.J., is recalling about 338,500 cans of Super Clean aerosol foam. The defective cans could allow the cleaner to gradually leak out through the seams. Direct contact with the cleaner could burn or irritate consumers' eyes and skin.

CPSC and Castrol have not received any reports of the cans leaking. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

Only the 22-ounce aerosol cans of cleaner are being recalled. The can is mostly colored purple with a plastic purple cap. The labeling on the can reads in part, "Castrol Super Clean...Solubilizes Grease on Contact...Foam Tough Task Cleaner/Degreaser." Cautionary information on the back of the can advises consumers to "Wear gloves and eye protection."

Large and small retail stores nationwide, including Advance Auto, Auto Zone, Chief Auto, CSK, Kmart, Pep Boys, Strauss Discount, Wal-Mart and Western Auto, sold the cleaner from January 1997 through March 1998 for about $3.

Consumers should stop using these 22-ounce aerosol cans of the cleaner. Consumer should call Castrol North America Inc. at (800) 307-2164 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday for information on how to dispose of the cans and how to receive a refund or rebate.
