CRC Industries Has Recalled Auto Pride Brake Parts Cleaner

(SafetyAlerts) -  CRC Industries Has Recalled Auto Pride Brake Parts Cleaner because the products were mislabeled.

Number Involved: 14,988

Defect: Certain Auto Pride products were mislabeled in the production process. The cans are labeled as 05088AP Brake Parts Cleaner Non-Chlorinated formula, but the cans actually contain 05089AP Brake Parts Cleaner, a chlorinated forumla. Thus, as labeled, the cans do not appropriately warn the user of the chlorinated content of the product.

Remedy: CRC is notifying its distributors and customers to return the product for a free replacement. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began July 11, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact CRC at 1-215-674-4300. [NHTSA Recall No. 02E040].

Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls

your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
