Gonzalez told an impromptu'

"I cannot see asking myself
to ask the House to extend the

In the absence of a change, he
said it would be "impossible to

Pretzels coatd
with lye
WASHINGTON - Consumers
were cautioned yesterday that
19,000 cases of pretzels, some
distributed nationwide, are
sprinkled with lye crystals that
can burn the tongue, mouth and
throat.
The Food and Drug Adminis-
tration announced recall of the
pretzezls made by Pepperidge
Farm Ic., and distributed un-
der six brand names, along with
37,000 cases still in the com-
pany's stock.
The lye crystals look like the
salt crystals used on pretzels,
the agency said in issuing a list
of the contaminated brands
which consumers should return
to the place of purchase.
Pretzels with the lye crystal
were made at the Pepperidge
Farm plant in New Holland, Pa.,
which now is shut down, the
FDA said.
It said that earlier this month,
two consumers in Detroit "re-
ceived chemical burns to the
mouth and tongue from eating
lye crystals that were in the
pretzel bags." Neither consumer
was hospitalized and both have
recovered.
"Subsequent FDA examination
of. unopened pretzel packages
has revealed the presence of
sodium hydroxide lye crystals."
The announcement explained
that lye and water are used to
"give pretzels their glazed look.
