This recall involves two products: Prestone Windshield De-Icer and Prestone Ice & Frost Shield. The Windshield De-Icer (SKU AS-246) is used to melt ice on vehicle windshields and windows. The De-Icer was sold in a clear yellow 32-ounce trigger spray plastic bottle with a black tip on the nozzle. The Prestone Ice & Frost Shield (SKU AS-247) is used to reduce morning frost, light ice and snow on vehicle windshields, windows and wiper blades. The Frost Shield was sold in a clear yellow 32-ounce trigger spray plastic bottle with a yellow trigger pull. The SKU number is printed on the bottom left of the back label.
Always keep all products that contain hazardous chemicals out of reach and sight of children. Consumers should inspect the bottle to see if the trigger assembly can be removed by twisting the neck shroud counter-clockwise. If the trigger assembly can be removed, consumers should contact Prestone to receive a new replacement trigger assembly that, once engaged, cannot be removed.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related 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 injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
