Prestone Recalls Windshield Products of Child Safety Issues
Prestone Windshield De-Icer and Prestone Ice and Frost Shield are being voluntarily recalled.
About the Prestone Product Recall
Approximately 4.1 million Windshield De-Icer and Frost Shield products are involved in this recall.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) the trigger spray assembly can be removed from the De-Icer and Frost Shield containers, which contain methanol and ethylene glycol. Children who have access to the product can detach the spray assembly, which poses a high risk of poisoning.
Prestone recommends keeping all products that contain hazardous chemicals out of reach and sight of children. Consumers should check the bottle themselves to see if the trigger assembly can be removed, if so, they should contact Prestone immediately.
Customers will receive a new replacement trigger assembly that cannot be removed.
