A recall has been ordered after testing by Health Canada revealed that Johnsen’s Brake Parts Cleaner sold by Princess Auto stores does not meet the requirements under Canadian Law with respect to flame projection.

This recall involves Johnsen’s Brake Parts Cleaner sold in a green pressurized container with a black cap. The product is identified by item number 8242844 and the following UPC numbers: 000000000008242844, 000000039101002415 and 000000039101024141 part number 2414F.

The length of the flame projection generated by this product exceeds the Canadian regulated limit thereby posing a potential fire hazard. Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries to Canadians related to the use of this product.

Approximately 10,000 units of the recalled brake parts cleaner were sold at Princess Auto retail stores across Canada from November 2008 to December 2008. Health Canada has advised all consumers to immediately stop using the recalled brake parts cleaner. Consumers may return the Johnsen’s Brake Parts Cleaner to a Princess Auto retail location for a full refund.
