....for which I show a very high allergic reaction to Thimerosal, the anti-bacteria may contain it?

It is highly unlikely that Castrol or any other metalworking fluid manufacturer in the US is using a mercury-based preservative. However, when in doubt, consult the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the product. Or, call Castrol directly and ask to speak to someone in Health & Safety. I'm sure that they would want to address your concerns.
