Amway mouthwash CRPs

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Amway meets with the Consumer Product Safety Commission July 12 to ask for more time to comply with regs covering child-resistant packaging for mouthwashes. The regs are expected to be finalized in May 1995 ("The Tan Sheet" May 16, In Brief). Amway said the unique design and packaging of its Glister B pump spray mouthwash (24% alcohol) combined with the company's manufacturing, delivery and distribution system, makes repackaging or reformulating the product "more of a job" than for other companies. Amway reported that CRPs for Glister B were tested on 50 four-year-olds, 48 of which were able to extract the product from its packaging, including 19 who managed to spray three or more grams of alcohol, an amount deemed hazardous under the regs. Amway was asked to submit comments to CPSC before July 25, when CPSC staffers are expected to complete a final briefing package for the commissioners
