Comma's Antifreeze Coolants Contain Bittering Agent


The RSPCA has recently reported a number of cat deaths, believed to be the result of the animals ingesting antifreeze coolant, either by accident or by deliberate poisoning.  Despite their potentially hazardous nature, these products have a sweet and ‘palatable’ taste. So for example, if a car has a leak and the fluid collects on the road, a curious cat may swallow such a product, causing the poisoning.

All of Comma’s antifreeze coolant products, (as well as those filled by the company for other brands,) include a bittering agent. This bittering agent evokes an almost immediate gagging reaction in the animal – or person – that has swallowed it, preventing them from fully ingesting the substance and effectively avoiding the poisoning.

Comma Chief Executive David Hopkinson commented: “Comma prides itself on an ethos of safety – not just for ourselves, but also our customers. Adding the bittering agent benefits both humans and animals.   One way to help avoid such sad incidents occurring is to choose or ask your service mechanic to use an antifreeze coolant that contains bittering agent."
