Release # 90-018


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Daisy Manufacturing Company, Rogers, Arkansas, has voluntarily recalled 8-shot and 12-shot ring caps distributed nationwide through Wal-Mart Stores. Daisy has learned that these caps may ignite prematurely if dropped or because of friction, when carried in a pocket, for example.

The only Daisy caps affected by this recall are caps on cards marked either "No. 4508" (8-shot) or "No. 4512" (12-shot) and purchased at Wal-Mart since October 1989. The red plastic rings of 8 or 12 individual caps are packed on cards 4-3/4 by 6 inches containing 27 or 18 rings. The retail price for each card was 87 cents. A total of 8,188 blister pack cards were sold before the product was removed from Wal-Mart store shelves beginning November 8, 1989.

Daisy is offering a full refund of the purchase price to consumers who have any of these caps. For a refund and directions for safely disposing of the caps, contact Daisy on 1-800-643-3458 (in Arkansas, call 1-636-1200). Consumers may write the firm at Daisy Manufacturing Company, P.O. Box 220, Rogers, AR 72756.
