That’s why some stores may still have it on their shelves (they *shouldn’t*), but haven’t been seeing them in shipments. I imagine the other “liquid CO2” products may be also caught up in this shortly, it all depends on how the labels read. Good ol’ CA legislation for ya!
this would make sense since both ca epa and calosha have it listed. ca department of ag website is so bad its hard to find any info.

The API CO2 Booster arrived from Amazon today. I read the label and compared it to the label on Excel: The API label has a longer, more detailed warning paragraph, and the warning seems more serious. I suspect this is why Excel isn't delivered in this state now. But, the API product is virtually the same as Excel, so I'm happy.

Thanks, Hoppy. Was there a cost difference between Excel and CO2 Booster?

The price is about the same for both - both are expensive compared to Metrocide 14. But, Metricide 14 isn't sold in less than gallon jugs.
