What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing defect, the bottom of the can may bulge out or suddenly and violently burst.

What are the hazards?

If the defect occurs, the can could suddenly and violently burst propelling the can and dispersing the contents. This may cause serious injury or property damage.

What should consumers do?

At all times when handling the can ensure that the bottom of the can is pointing away from any person or animal. Do not shake the can. If the bottom of the can shows signs of bulging contact MotorActive at the details below immediately. Otherwise check the batch number by holding the can at arm length and reading the batch number on the top dome area of the can. If your product has the affected batch number:
1. Take the can outdoors to a well ventilated area away from other objects. MotorActive strongly recommends use of protective clothing, including gloves, safety/sun glasses and long sleeves/coveralls.
2. At arms length, turn the can upside down.
3. With one hand holding the can upside down point the nozzle into an open carton or cardboard box and use your other hand to press the nozzle until all the gas in the can is removed. If the can becomes excessively cold, stop, allow can to return to normal temperature, and repeat the process. When discharging the can ensure that the nozzle is pointing away from any person or object (some paint will come out),
4. Replace the cap and return the product to a Super Cheap Auto store for a full refund.
