RACINE, WI (October 24, 2003) – S. C. Johnson and Son, Inc. announced today that it is voluntarily recovering 185,000 cans of its aerosol Raid® Flying Insect Killer (EPA Reg. No. 4822-513), manufactured in two lots in August of this year. ../cm_images/Raid-FIK-01.jpg The cans in question were shipped to stores throughout the U.S. All of the cans were manufactured on August 13 and 14, 2003, and were distributed thereafter.

This voluntary recovery is due to the unacceptable performance of the product, which does not meet SC Johnson's high manufacturing standards. The company discovered the situation internally and then immediately moved to recover the product in question.  There have been no reports of injury or damage to property.

Tests show that the aerosol cans may not spray an appropriately fine mist of insecticide and therefore could have a reduction in effectiveness.  In addition, the company believes that some cans in question could leak over time. Consumers whose product is recovered will be provided a full value coupon redeemable for a free replacement can of Raid® Flying Insect Killer.

"SC Johnson stands behind the quality of our products," said Kelly M. Semrau, company spokesperson.  "As soon as we discovered the unacceptable performance of these isolated lots, we took immediate steps to replace them with the effective product consumers have come to expect from us."

The aerosol cans of Raid® Flying Insect Killer are marked with lot number 225 or 226 on the bottom of the can. Consumers can find the lot numbers stamped in black on the bottom of the can (see photos below).

SC Johnson strongly encourages all consumers who purchased Raid® Flying Insect Killer aerosol cans marked with lot number 225 or 226 to call 1-800-294-3632 to receive instructions for appropriate disposal and a coupon for a full value replacement.

All other lot numbers of Raid® Flying Insect Killer and other Raid® products are not involved in this recovery and consumers should continue to use those products according to label instructions.
