Prestone has announced a recall of its Windshield De-Icer and Prestone Ice & Frost Shield over concerns the trigger spray assembly may be removed from the container, posing a risk of poisoning to 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.
