Chuck B 2004 Windsor Posted March 17, 2022 Share Posted March 17, 2022 Prestone has recalled its Shop Pro brand of RV and marine antifreeze, sold exclusively at Autozone. The recall was necessary because of a risk of methanol poisoning, according to a release from the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (USPSC) The recalled antifreeze bottles have date code FT21281 printed at the bottom of the bottle and only bottles with blue fluid are affected. “Bottles labeled as Shop Pro RV & Marine Antifreeze were improperly filled with a product containing methanol. These improperly filled bottles do not have the mandatory cautionary label for products containing methanol warnings, including that the vapors are harmful and the product can be fatal or cause blindness if swallowed. Also, the directions on the bottle for properly flushing a potable water system can fail to adequately remove the methanol, presenting a risk of ingestion. Products containing methanol pose a poisoning hazard through inhalation or if ingested,” the USPSC release stated. Approximately 325 bottles were affected and customers who purchased the product should return it to Autozone for a refund.
