One of the nation's largest manufacturers of car cleaning products hasrecalled about 200,000 cans of car wax because the containers may rupture and cause injury. The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Thursday that SIMONIZ had recalled its "Quick Gloss" car wax after three incidents in which container corrosion caused a buildup of pressure that ruptured the cans. No injuries were reported.
However, safety commission spokesman Dan Rumelt said various parts of the container, including the metal dome, may separate and cause injury. Consumers should spray the wax into trash cans away from any
open flame and immediately dispose of the metal containers, the safety agency said. It warned consumers not to puncture, incinerate or use a trash compactor in disposing of the cans. Consumers may call 1 (800) 243-6400 for information on a refund.
