Plaid Enterprises, Inc. Recalls 20,650 Bottles Of Folkart Extender #947

Washington, DC -- In cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Plaid Enterprises, Inc., of Norcross, Georgia, today announced the voluntary recall of approximately 20,650 bottles of FOLKART EXTENDER #947 distributed since July, 1985. This adult craft product is being recalled because ethylene glycol was used in the formulation of this product instead of propylene glycol.

The Company and the Commission believe that consumers may be exposed to a risk of injury because ethylene glycol requires certain labeling and packaging under the Federal Hazardous Substance Act and Poison Prevention Packaging Act not required for products containing propylene glycol, which is not toxic. The ingestion of the entire contents of the ethylene glycol product by a small child could result in death.

On February 6, 1986, the Company became aware of the substitution in the formulation. There have been no reported injuries to date.

The product is sold at a retail price of about $1.59 and is distributed through craft stores and the craft departments of various other retail outlets.

Anyone wishing further information may call Plaid Enterprises, Inc. toll-free on 1-800-652-0775 outside Georgia. In Georgia, call collect at 1-404-923-8368.
