Proposed dishwasher detergent warning misleading, SDA said.

* A proposed warning about automatic dishwasher detergents (ADDs) for inclusion in an international standard for appliance operating instructions could "misdirect and misinform: consumers, according to The Soap and Detergent Association (SDA).

The SDA has filed comments with the U.S. National Committee of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) to reject the proposal. Dishwashing appliance manual directions should be focused on the safe and proper use of the appliance, not the use of the dishwashing detergents, said SDA president and chief executive officer Ernie Rosenberg. He added that dishwasher detergents are stringently regulated in many nations and that the IEC language may also be inconsistent with ongoing global efforts to harmonize precautionary labeling.
