    Default Western Powders/Accurate Powders Recall!

    RECALL NOTICE:
    ACCURATE POWDERS

    General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems Canada Valleyfield, Inc (GD-OTS), has determined a potential defect relating to certain lots of Accurate 2495, 4064 and 4350 propellants manufactured for Western Powders, Inc. prior to October 1, 2016 and packaged under the Accurate brand name in 1 lb. and 8 lb. canisters, may be defective.


    The use or storage of this product may result in combustion, fire damage and/or possible serious injury or property damage. Some signs of degradation include, but are not limited to, container lid deformation, discoloration of the containers in the lid area, presence of red fumes when the container lid is opened, or the presence of a strong acidic odor.

    GD-OTS and Western Powders, Inc. are recalling the following powders packaged under the Accurate brand in 1 lb. and 8 lb. containers:

    OR as a sticker on the bottom of the container.

    What you should do:
    1) Immediately fill the container with water, which will render the product inert and safe for disposal.

    3) DO NOT load ammunition with affected powder

    NOTE: This recall does not extend to loaded ammunition. Performance of ammunition with propellant showing no signs of degradation will not be altered, provided recommended storage conditions are followed. It is recommended that loaded ammunition be checked regularly for deterioration.


    Safety is our first concern. If you have any questions regarding this recall, contact us at:

    Not to be confused with IMR Powders with the same number. This notice grabbed my attention when it was released back in November since I use IMR 4064.
