Saw this on another forum.


IMR Legendary Powders is officially announcing a product safety warning and recall notice for IMR 4007SSC smokeless powder. All lots of powder are included in the recall. IMR has received reports that this particular powder, sold in 1 pound and 8 pound containers, could become unstable due to possible rapid deterioration. Use of this product may result in combustion, fire damage and/or possible serious injury.

What to do:

If you are in possession of IMR 4007SSC, STOP USING THE

PRODUCT IMMEDIATELY! Fill the powder container with water, which will render

the product inert and safe for disposal.

Mail, email or fax a copy of the powder label with the lot number to the contact

You may select a replacement IMR smokeless powder product of your choice, which will

be shipped to you at no charge.

If you have loaded the powder subject to this recall into ammunition, we recommend that

you pull the bullets, remove the powder and wet the powder with water for safe disposal.

IMR deeply regrets any inconvenience this may cause, but we believe in safety first.
