Huffing: Canned Air Deaths at Wal-Mart

We all know canned air and computer dusters can kill but Wal-Mart still has not kept those products locked up and huffing deaths are happening. The article Inhalants — The Easy to Acquire but Deadly Drug That Nobody Talks About has detailed the following deaths:

 

“Computer duster is sometimes called “canned air,” but it’s actually the toxic chemical 1,1-difluoroethane. As Allen pulled the trigger, sending a spray of 1,1-difluoroethane into his mouth, he probably felt a surge of euphoria — like going from sober to wasted in just one sip. Neurotransmitters in his brain released a flood of chemicals that confused his heart: It likely started beating faster, becoming inflamed, developing an arrythmia. Two weeks after Allen died

 

Steven Allen’s case is far from the first time someone has inhaled, or “huffed,” computer duster at a Walmart. Thanks to its many 24-hour locations and nationally recognized security problems, it’s easy for huffers to go overlooked at Walmart. They often don’t even bother to leave the store’s property before they get started. Plus a three-pack of Dust-Off costs less than $12.”

This is what happens when canned air is inhaled

 

“In September 2014 Roger Taft Collins was found dead in his car in a North Carolina Walmart parking lot, a few hours after buying computer duster from the store, according to media reports at the time.”

 

“Last October Jett Fischer was caught huffing duster in a Walmart bathroom in Washington state. He was taken to the hospital and died a few hours later.”

 

“In mid-July Sean Sobczak was found huffing in an Illinois Walmart parking lot, with 12 cans of duster in his car. He was also taken to a hospital, where he died the next day.”

 

“And on April 13, 2016, 24-year-old Karalee Williams was found dead of a 1,1-difluoroethane overdose in the parking lot of a Baytown Walmart store. Williams had parked her car in the Walmart parking lot on April 10, and — over the next two days — entered the Walmart nine times, ultimately buying 67 cans of computer duster, says Tracie Fisher, who says the Chambers County Sheriff’s Office officials who worked on Williams’s case told her this”
If you search “canned air Wal-Mart” or “computer duster Wal-Mart” you will get an idea of how huge the problem really is. Please do and please let your local Wal-Mart know there are better solutions like Canless Air.

The Dangers Of Canned Air

 

Canned air is most commonly used in offices to clean dust from equipment such as computers and shredders. These products can lead to flash fires, explosions and even death. Canned air is not air, it’s actually considered a hazardous material. The products are made of a dangerous gas that is compressed into a liquid and canned. The types of gases used vary, and most are dangerous or even deadly when used improperly. Some of the more common dangers include:

 

-Flammable ingredients. When canned gas is tilted, the liquefied and highly flammable gas can be released into the air and onto surfaces it contacts. This can be especially dangerous in poorly ventilated areas. When a flammable atmosphere is created, flames, sparks and electrical switches can ignite the concentrated gas, causing a flash fire.

-Frostbite. The liquid inside canned air can cause frostbite when the skin is exposed to a steady stream. This can vary from an intense burning sensation to serious physical injuries such as skin cracking, and damage to muscles, blood vessels and nerves.

-Asphyxiation and toxicity. When high concentrations of the gas are released into a nonventilated area, oxygen deficiency and possible asphyxiation can occur. The effects of inhalation vary depending on the type of chemical used, as well as the intensity and duration of exposure. When used properly, a serious breathing problem is unlikely to occur.

Over Half of All Fortune 500 Companies Are Now Using Our Canless Air System

Canless Air is a safe and sustainable alternative to hazardous canned air.

It’s safe and inexpensive.

More and more businesses are focused on reducing their carbon footprint. As a result, Canless Air System’s line of handheld, cordless, electronic dusters are now being used by over half of all Fortune 500 companies in place of canned “air.” According to Canless Air System CEO and Founder John Scherer, canned air doesn’t only contain air, it’s actually  a mix of dangerous liquids and gases. That’s why their decision to use Canless Air is a such a simple one.

“It’s a no-brainer,” says Scherer. “Canned air is wasteful, it’s effective use time is short. It also contains dangerous chemicals which not only harm our climate, but are also highly explosive. Plus, used canned air is hazardous waste so there’s the additional cost of the safe disposal of the cans to consider.”

A Department of Energy Report states: “Using canned air for purposes such as keyboard cleanings is problematic. The EPA classifies canned air as a cryogen and an explosive. As a result, containers must be disposed as a hazardous waste under Resource Recovery and Conservation Act (RCRA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements. Federal, State and local laws mandate proper disposal.”

How We’re Different.

What sets the Canless Air System apart from traditional canned air dusters, is that it simply uses the air we breathe. It draws air from the room and then blasts it out anywhere between 220 and 260 MPH, depending on the model. This makes it powerful enough to clean computers, electronics, servers, and anywhere dust gathers.

Another advantage Scherer points out is the money it saves you. “Our units are rechargeable, just like your cell phone, and one unit is equal 1000 cans of canned air. Not only are you cleaning green, you’re saving green at the same time.”

It’s For Everyone.

What do you use your canless air for?

Canless Air has not only caught on with Corporate America, it’s also popular with small businesses. In addition, people use it in their homes for cleaning. We currently sell it in over 20 countries.

“Our sales have been terrific,” says Scherer. “Customer reaction has been very positive and people are finding uses for the Hurricane that we never would have thought of. For example, one use is cleaning smoke detectors. It’s become so popular in that market that a fire alarm testing company private labels our product.”
