ATE Super Blue Recall

I looked at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website and did not see anything. I'm not sure how the color can cause brake failure or damage like the article says but they have to exaggerate everything for shock value I guess ::)

Thank you NHTSA, I may have mistakenly put windshield washer fluid in my brake reservoir.
 
Good timing. I have two cans but was going to switch to a different brand anyway.

Sounds like blue brake fluid is not legal. How long have they been selling that?

A long time. I first started using it in my '97 Probe GT.

Also don't dump the fluid there's nothing wrong with it. They just don't like the color.

I'be been using it on my '99 Super Duty since about '01. Good thing I have several cans in stock. I'll use the amber for the truck going forward and use the blue on the Boss.
 
it's not kool-aid, so dont drink it guys lol

i heard this a couple of weeks ago, right after i bought like 6 cans of it at a good price... good thing i went with the amber version.

Amber is dime a dozen. Unused bottles of blue are what we're going to miss.
