CSPA Teams Up with Humane Society

February 12, 2013

The Humane Society Legislative Fund (HSLF) and Consumer Specialty Products Association (CSPA) jointly announced an agreement to voluntarily add a bitter flavoring agent to antifreeze and engine coolant manufactured for sale for the consumer market in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to prevent animals and children from being poisoned by the sweet-tasting liquid. Poisoning occurs because animals are attracted to the sweetness of antifreeze and engine coolant, which inadvertently spills in driveways or is left in open containers in garages.

“Partnering with the Humane Society Legislative Fund in passing these laws in 17 states has shown that, by finding compromise and working together, we can develop sound public policy. It is vital that consumers continue to read the labels and follow label instructions on the proper use, storage and disposal of antifreeze. Today, all major marketers are placing the bitterant in antifreeze in all 50 states,” said Phil Klein, executive vice president, legislative and public affairs for CSPA.

Denatonium benzoate has been used in common household products and as an anti-nail biting formula for decades in the US.
