    Subject: Major Sprinkler Head Recall Announced

    According to USA Today for July 18 (1B), the Consumer Product
    Safety Commission is to issue a major recall potentially
    affecting 30 million GB Sprinkler heads manufactured by Central
    Sprinkler. See
    <URL:> for a Feb
    2nd UL news release which describes the potential problem with
    the head and pictures it. Only those models equipped with
    "O-ring" water seals are said to have potential leaking problem.
    The Feb 2nd new release pictures both the o-ring model and an
    upgraded version.
