Saving Animals with Antifreeze Bittering Act

For years, it has beeen known that animals are attracted to the sweet taste of antifreeze. Now the government has stepped in to do something about it.

The "Antifreeze Bittering Act" has been introduced in Congress. The bill would require engine coolant, or antifreeze, that is 10 percent ethylene glycol to also contain denatonium benzoate, an extremely bitter chemical.

The House Subcommittee on Environment and Hazardous Material is reviewing the bill. It's a shame that it takes legislation for these manufacturers to make a change.
