CERTAIN INTERSTATE BATTERIES RECALLED
CERTAIN INTERSTATE BATTERIES RECALLED MILWAUKEE, Sept. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Johnson Controls, Inc.
(NYSE: JCI) is recalling approximately 1,700 Interstate brand automotive batteries that were sold by Interstate for use in the engine compartments of some Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Peugeot and Porsche model vehicles. The batteries affected have white covers and containers, are models MB66-42A and MB88-42A, and were sold between June 20, 1992 and Aug. 20, 1992. This recall is restricted to a small exclusive shipment of Johnson Controls' manufactured batteries, and no other batteries are affected.
The company said that no personal injuries have been reported. To avoid possible injuries, customers are asked to contact the Interstate dealer where they purchased the product rather than personally replacing the battery. Dealers will replace all batteries covered by the recall. Customers may phone 1-800-872-4001 with any questions. The batteries were produced by Johnson Controls, Inc. which said that a material error in the vent caps may under some circumstances cause cracking of the case and possible spraying of the acid. Johnson Controls said that it has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration about the problem. -0- 9/11/92 /CONTACT: Denise M.
