FTC v. Creative Aerosol Corp., 58 Fed. Reg. (Oct. 31 1994)

FTC v. Creative Aerosol Corp.


Creative Aerosol marketed "Funny Color Foam" soap, an aerosol soap. The product advertised, "environmentally safe - contains no fluorocarbons" and that the aluminum aerosol can and plastic cap were recyclable. The FTC alleged that Funny Color Foam soap contained chlorodifluoromethane (HCFC-22), a Class II volatile organic compound know to the EPA as an ozone-depleting substance, and that although the can and cap were potentially recyclable there were no recycling facilities that would accept the can and only a few that would accept the cap.
