Containmated Tylenol
bottle found in store

CHICAGO (AP)- Another bottle of
Tylenol containing cyanide-laden cap-
sules was found yesterday by
authorities checking bottles ordered
pulled from store shelves Oct. 2, Police
Superintendent Richard Brzeczek said.
The bottle found at Dominick's Finer
Foods in Chicago "had a substantially
larger number of contaminated cap-
sules" than did other adulterated
Tylenol bottles, he said.
IT WAS the second poisoned unsold
bottle to be found. The cyanide that
killed seven people came from Sfive
separate bottles of Extra-Strength
Tylenol, and Brzeczek said it was his
impression that the new bottle was also
Extra-Strength.
Dominick's is a half-block from the
Walgreen's Drug Store where the
seventh reported victim, Paul Prince,
35, purchased her 24-capsule bottle of
the best-selling over-the-counter pain
remedy.
Mayor Jane Byrne banned all Tylenol
sales Oct. 2 at a news conference called
to announce the discovery of Prince's
body the day before. Merchants were

asked to turn over their stocks for
testing.
BRZECZEK also called "significant"
the fact that the lot number on the
newly discovered contaminated bot-
tle-MC2880-was the same batch that
was found to have been taken by four of
the other victims. All four people were
residents of Chicago suburbs.
Brzeczek said McNeil Consumer
Products Co., the manufacturer of
Tylenol, contracted with a laboratory to
test the stock turned over by store
owners.

Work to continue
Koresak Ziolkowski (inset), the sculptor who spent the
last 35 years of his life carving the still-unfinished Crazy
Horse Memorial from a granite mountain in the Black
Hills of South Dakota, died yesterday at the age of 74. A
scale model of the sculpture stands in front of the project,
which his family has vowed will continue. A jeep is visible
on top of the mountain.

'p has recently begun to sell pre-
packaged organic skin and hair care
products while the Herb and Spice Shop
on Ann Street now carries a selection of
clothing in addition to its other natural
products.
The Packard co-op has also
lengthened its store hours to bring in
iore buyers.
,1n response to the criticisms about
their new products, Bette Skandalis and
e other Packard coordinators are
planning an in-store campaign to
educate customers about alternatives
to white sugar and flour.
"MEANWHILE, coordinators at each
co-op are struggling to redefine the
ideology behind the system. The board
of directors would like to see the co-ops
-completely member-owned and finan-
dially sound, Curtis said. The directors
are developing still another new mem-
bership plan that would meet these
neds.
Curtis said the board of directors
:lopes to develop a "fair-share"
japitalization plan to replace the
5irrent membership program. Under
-the new plan, a member buys a voting
$hare in the co-op and builds up a "fair-
4hare" acount to a level set by the
membership. Instead of the 2 percent
mnembership discount, the members
would receive an annual rebate.
This plan would help ease financial
troubles as well as fully return co-op
ownership to the members, Curtis said.
The directors also want to consolidate

i

the area co-ops, he said. Last week they
signed a land-contract agreement to
purchase a building at 216-218 N. Fourth
Ave. If the sale goes through, the Four-

th Ave. Co-op, People's Produce Co-op,
Wildflour Community Bakery, and the
Herb and Spice Shop will relocate to the
new building.
