AGRSS Council Issues Alert Regarding DOT 430 Recall

The Auto Glass Replacement Safety Standards (AGRSS) Council has issued an alert to its registered shops about the recent recall of products included in DOT 430, which are believed to have been manufactured by Hangzhou Safety Glazing Ltd. and sold to Safelite Auto Glass/Belron US (and possibly others) by Auto Temp Inc. in Batavia, Ohio. The glass is said to have been supplied to Auto Temp by Wholesale Automotives Inc. in Paterson, N.J. (CLICK HERE for related story.)

"Glass shops should check their sales and inventory for the parts in question and contact their glass supplier to determine the appropriate disposition of the product and whether further action may be deemed appropriate," the alert warns.

The alert also notes that because the AGRSS standard requires shops to trace work by DOT number, this should assist shops in locating any of the suspect glass that might have been installed.

"Your documentation of this DOT and part number, to your work orders, should allow you to identify any vehicles listed, in the NHTSA release, which may have had the subject glass installed," it says.
