CRC Industries Has Recalled Auto Pride Brake Parts
- 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
