CPSC, The Penray Companies Inc. Announce Recall of Starting Fluid
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), The Penray Companies Inc., of Wheeling, Ill., is recalling about 113,000 cans of starting fluid, which is a lubricant to aid starting gas and diesel engines. The cans containing the starting fluid can leak as a result of internal to external corrosion. The starting fluid is extremely flammable and the leaking fluid poses a fire hazard. Direct contact with the product also can irritate the consumer's eyes and skin.
Penray has received three reports of cans of the starting fluid leaking. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled starting fluid was sold under the Penray, Super-X and Service Pro brand names in 10.1 ounce cans. The recalled cans have a number printed on the dome of the can ranging from 9305 through 9365. For consumers who purchased the starting fluid by the case, the production date is written on the side of the case. The cans are mostly black with white and red writing and black plastic caps.
Automobile repair and rebuild shops sold the starting fluid nationwide from November 1999 through August 2000 for $2 to $3.
Consumers should stop using the recalled starting fluid immediately. Place it in a well-ventilated area away from sparks or flames. Consumers should call Penray toll-free at (800) 323-6329 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday for information on how to dispose of these cans, and how to get a refund.
