BUSINESS & FINANCE PERSONAL FINANCE If Can Bulges, Buy With Care By CARLTON SMITH Do you know how to recognize "springers" and "flippers" when you encounter these danger signals? Clue: You meet They're signs of spoilage in canned food. Knowing how to spot the symptoms of spoiled or contaminated canned foods can do a lot more than save you the cost of the food, when you find you have to dump it. It can stand between you and serious illness . . . even death. You can't rely on your sense of smell and taste, no matter how keen, to detect tainted food. DEADLY POISON Botulism, the deadly poison that touched off the recent nationwide hunt for contaminated vichysoisse, can be present with- out'affecting odor or taste. „,« . *r_ _. ^P J.T-_ t something more deadly. Another is the "springer." Press on the top of the can (or the bottom) and it goes in with a pop. Let up, and it pops out. VICE VERSA Similar to the springs is the "flipper." The difference is that when you press on the top, it pops in and .the bottom pops out—or vice versa. Any of these are indications of abnormal pressures within the can, and a warning that the contents may be spoiled or infected. Don't just put such a can back on ths shelf; a less _alert shopper may come to grief with it. Take it to the manager. A "leaker" is a can that leaks, and not many shoppers would wittingly add it to the shopping When inspectors of the Food and Drug Administration launched their massive search for toxic cans, here's what they looked-for to ferret out the potentially dangerous from among the thousands on the shelves: The first danger signal you're likely to recognize—the most obvious — is .something wrong with the shape of the can. It bulges. SOFT SWELL A "soft swell," to the FDA inspectors, is a bulge that wffl give under pressure of the fingers. A "hard swell" won't give, even when considerable force is applied. These are two of the symptoms that indicate the possibility of gas being generated inside the can, by fermentation—or DOUGHNUTS for a coffee break? Not exactly. What appears to be stacks of the dunker's delight are actually yoke assemblies installed on the necks of advanced black matrix color picture tubes being assembled in Smithfield, N. C. These help create-die picture. '' _______ Ogden Standard-Examiner, Wednesday, October 6, 1971 IE VEHICLES UNSOLD Ford Denies Clean Air Act Violated DETROIT. .(AP) .— The Ford Motor Co. -has denied a. report- . ed charge by the federal government that it had'placed for sale with, its dealers some 200,000 1972 cars and trucks which did not-meet standards of the Clean Air Act. The Detroit Free Press re' ported "i in its. Wednesday editions- : ihat the 'Environmental Protection Agency—EPA—had asked the Justice Department to prosecute'Ford. The act pro•vides for-a $10,000'-fine for each . vehicle- not meeting "the emis- • sion standards: : EPA officials could not be reached'to confirm the story. the Free Press report, Ford said Tuesday night that it had shipped the vehicles to dealers, but that:none was sold until certified as meeting Clean Air Act standards. Ford said the EPA had approved the move. The problem arose, • Ford said, because EPA was late in issuing its standards on emissions for 1972 vehicles. Ford said that with its assembly lines busily turning out 1972 cars and trucks, 70,000 workers would have been laid off if the lines were-shut down. Instead, Ford said, it. began a program of sending the new vehicles to dealers on consignment, which meant that the auto firm retained title to the vehicles-and'none could be sold until the auto firm approved. "We sought and received assurance from the EPA ; that it would not challenge this program. Although EPA has been aware of our consignment program for montiis, at no time were we asked to discontinue the program," Ford said. "In this regard, we think it is important to note that our foreign competitors are free to consign uncertified vehicles." Ford said that as EPA gave its okay to the new power plants and their emission levels, regular price stickers were sent to the dealers to be placed on the side windows of those new cars which had engines of approved series. In about 5,000 cases, the engines were adjusted so they would meet the federal standards. The remainder, a Ford official said, required no direct action by the firm but simply the removal of a sticker saying the car had not passed EPA tests and the addition of a price tag in its place. basket, but the FDA adds it to the list of danger signals to look for. What about dented cans? A small dent in an otherwise healthy looking can probably is no cause for alarm, says an FDA expert. But a sizable dent may have fractured the lining inside the can, bringing the food into contact with bare metal. And if the affected area _involves a dent in the seam, either around the top or down the .side, the seam may have opened. A rust spot on a can? It may be harmless—but there's also the possibility that it was caused Jay a leak. Or, even more seriously, that unhealthful contents have turned highly acid, eating through the metal. GM, Ford, Chrysler Record Biggest September Soles Ever DETROIT (AP) — Sales charts show that Ford, Chrys- • ler and General Motors had the biggest September in their history and that American .Motors sales for the month were the strongest since 1969. September was the first full month for auto sales under President Nixon's wage-price freeze. U.S. sales totaled 875,252 new cars for the month, about 29 per cent ahead of September 1970. The top 12 foreign car firms also reported .September sales running well ahead of las_t_ year in spite of'dock strikes which tied up deliveries from overseas. Ben Didwell, vice president and general manager of Ford's Lincoln-Mercury Division, said Tuesday that "Our dealers tell us they have never seen anything like today's boom. There 1 is demand in every segment of the market and 'buyers 'are choosing top-of-the-line models with a rich mix of options." However, General Motors noted it was strikebound at this time last year and said a true comparison, was hard to make. OZITE SALE STARTS WED., OCT. 6TH.
