WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Hysan Corporation of Chicago, Illinois, today announced the voluntary recall of 47,000 cans of Revco brand spray windshield de-icer that Hysan produced from October through December 1984.

Hysan Corporation has received four reports of consumers who have been sprayed in the face by escaping contents. De-icers contain a flammable liquid, and close attention should be paid to the warning label.
The recalled cans display a blue and white label painted on the metal can. Revco de-icer cans with paper labels are not affected. The affected cans have the following batch codes stamped in blue on the bottom of the can:
Consumers with these affected products should return them to a Revco store for a full refund.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
