Download as PDF wreier-aviles on DSKDVH8Z91PROD with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 143 / Tuesday, July 26, 2011 / Proposed Rules packaged in containers that are not seethrough. We are docketing this request as a petition under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act (‘‘PPPA’’). 15 U.S.C. 1471–1477. The PPPA authorizes the Commission to issue requirements that certain household substances be sold in childresistant containers. 15 U.S.C. 1471– 1477. Child-resistant packaging requirements currently apply to torch fuel and lamp oil. (More specifically, the child-resistant packaging requirements apply to ‘‘kindling and/or illuminating preparations,’’ which includes ‘‘cigarette lighter fuel, charcoal lighter fuel, camping equipment fuel, torch fuel, and fuel for decorative and functional lanterns, which contain 10 percent or more by weight of petroleum distillates and have a viscosity of less than 100 Saybolt universal seconds at 100° Fahrenheit.’’ 16 CFR 1700.14(7)). The PPPA does not authorize the Commission to prescribe specific packaging designs for household substances. 15 U.S.C. 1472(d). However, in the case of a household substance for which special packaging, i.e., childresistant packaging, is required, the Commission may prohibit the packaging of such substance in packages which it determines are unnecessarily attractive to children. Id. Therefore, in order to issue a rule requiring that torch fuel and lamp oil not be sold in see-through containers, the Commission would need to determine that the packaging is ‘‘unnecessarily attractive’’ to children. Petitioner asserts that certain petroleum distillates, including torch fuel and lamp oil, as currently packaged, resemble juice. Petitioner notes that because young children enjoy the taste of juice and are accustomed to drinking it regularly, packaging petroleum distillates in clear plastic bottles causes needless danger, as children may mistake it for juice. Petitioner states that ‘‘the New Jersey Poison Information and Education System stated in June 2008 that four people were hospitalized, one was critically ill, and one killed due to torch oil being mistaken for apple juice.’’ Petitioner also states that ‘‘from 2002 through 2009 the Annual Report of the American Association of Poison Control Centers’ National Data System has chronicled the exposure of many young children to lamp oils, which includes torch fuels.’’ Petitioner’s son died after ingesting torch fuel from a clear plastic bottle. While torch fuel and lamp oil are already subject to child-resistant packaging and labeling requirements under the Poison Prevention Packaging Act and the Federal Hazardous VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:37 Jul 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 Substances Act, petitioner asserts that additional special packaging is necessary. Specifically, petitioner requests that the CPSC initiate rulemaking ‘‘that would require manufacturers of [torch fuel and lamp oils] to package the product in containers that make it impossible to see the product when in the container.’’ Petitioner notes that this could be accomplished ‘‘by packaging the fuel in a solid container or opaque plastic child-resistant container or a metal container.’’ By this notice, we seek comments concerning this petition. Interested parties may obtain a copy of the petition by writing or calling the Office of the Secretary, U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Room 820, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD 20814; telephone (301) 504–7923. Copies of the petition are also available for inspection from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, in the Commission’s Public Reading Room, Room 419, 4330 East West Highway, Bethesda, MD, or from our Web site at: http://www.cpsc.gov.
