CPSC, Filter Tech Inc. Announce Recall of Windshield Washer Fluid

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Filter Tech Inc., of Huntington, W.V., is recalling about 335,000 bottles of Aqua Mist windshield washer fluid. The bottles, which contain methyl alcohol, are not sealed with child-resistant closures as required by federal law. Methyl alcohol, also known as methanol, is toxic and can cause blindness or death if ingested.

CPSC and Filter Tech are not aware of any injuries involving this product. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury.

This recall involves 1 gallon bottles of Aqua Mist Windshield Washer Fluid with twist-off caps. The bottle's label reads in part, "Aqua Mist Windshield Washer Fluid Protects to -25 F...Manufactured by Filter Tech, Inc. Huntington, WV." The label's UPC number is "6 96632 00001 5."

Speedway Superamerica stores and other automotive stores in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia sold the windshield washer fluid from October 1999 through April 2000 for about $1.50.

Consumers immediately should return the bottles to the store where purchased for their choice of a full refund, exchange or child-resistant cap. For more information, call Filter Tech at (800) 834-5832.

Aqua Mist bottles with caps marked "while pushing down, turn, close tightly" are child-resistant and are not recalled.
