Texas Antifreeze Bill

A bill that would prevent children and animals from antifreeze poisoning has passed in the Texas Senate.

The Texas Senate has unanimously approved a new measure to add a bittering agent to antifreeze and engine-coolant products, potentially reducing thousands of childhood and animal poisonings. The naturally sweet liquid is currently responsible for an estimated 1,400 children and 10,000 animals being poisoned each year from consuming ethylene glycol, the chemical used to make antifreeze. If passed in the state’s House, manufacturers will be required to add denatonium benzoate, an extremely bitter chemical, to all coolants and antifreeze products sold in Texas, and would make it the 16th state with such a law.
