 CHEVRON ANNOUNCES RECALL OF LIMITED QUANTITY OF
 CHEVRON AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION FLUID
 SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevron U.S.A. Products Company today announced a limited recall of Chevron Automatic Transmission Fluid as a result of finding seven quart bottles containing a portion of motor oil. The recall is for the DEXRON( II-approved product that was packaged on June 29 and 30 of this yearand subsequently marketed in the South, East and mid-West.
 "We are extremely sorry that this problem has occurred," said Bill Steelman, general manager of Chevron's Lubricants Division. "But I want to reassure customers that using the identified product is not a hazard and should not cause damage to transmissions.
 "However, customers should contact their local Chevron dealer if they have any concerns regarding use of the product," he said.
 The problem was first identified when one dealer in the Dallas area returned a total of 31 bottles of the product, of which seven contained a portion of motor oil. The company launched an investigation and to date has determined that only those seven quarts contained a mixture of transmission fluid and motor oil.
 The affected automatic transmission fluid was produced and packaged at Chevron's Port Arthur, Texas, facility. The cause of the problem is under review and corrective actions are being taken.
 The product is sold primarily in quart bottles with easily identifiable markings. Those bottles containing the DEXRON( II-approved product have a bright red liquid, which can be seen through a translucent strip along the side of the package. In contrast, motor oil appears dark amber in color.
