WASHINGTON, D.C.- CPSC, Philip Morris U.S.A. of New York, N.Y., is recalling approximately 500,000 key chains imported by Cyrk Inc. of Gloucester, Mass. The key chains are not hazardous if used as intended. However, they contain liquid petroleum, which can pose a hazard to young children if they ingest the liquid or inhale it into their lungs.

The plastic disk-shaped key chain measures almost 2 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. A plastic sailboat marked "Parliament" floating in clear and blue liquid is visible through one side of the clear disk. The words, "PARLIAMENT Out-Of-This-World GETAWAY II," mark the other side of the disk. A metal key ring is attached to the disk. The key chains were distributed free with a two-pack purchase of Parliament cigarettes to adult consumers in the northeastern United States and at promotional events in Panama City, Fla., from August 1993 to September 1994.

Consumers should call Philip Morris at (800) 230-1101 to receive a postage-paid, leak-proof mailer in which to return the key chain. Philip Morris will send consumers $5.00 for each returned key chain.
