SIMONIZ Quick Gloss Recalled

Washinton, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced the recall of SIMONIZ Quick Gloss, because the product's aerosol metal container may rupture. This could result in the metal dome (not the plastic cap) of the container separating under pressure causing injury to the user or bystanders.

CPSC was informed of this hazard by SIMONIZ, of Danbury, CT, when consumers reported three incidents to the firm. These incidents involved can failure in which the aerosol container apparently corroded, causing a build-up in pressure and rupture of the can. SIMONIZ is not aware of any injuries associated with the incidents.

Approximately 200,000 cans of the product were distributed nationally, for about $4.00 at retail, since February 1989.

Consumers should spray the contents of the aerosol cans into a waste container away from any open flame and immediately dispose of the containers as they normally would do with their trash. As with any aerosol container, these cans should not be punctured or disposed of in an incinerator or trash compactor. For information on how to receive a full refund of the purchase price of the product, consumers should call SIMONIZ toll-free at 1-800-243-6400 and provide the product code number, appearing on the bottom of the can, and the purchase price.
