Refunds for Home Canning Lids Set WASHINGTON (AP) _ The department of health, education and welfare reports that the Kerr Glass Manufacturing Corp has announced it will give con sumers refunds toward the cosl of home canning lids that faile( to .seal and were sold between November, 1973, and August 1974. The department said Kerr will also reimburse home canners to- ward the market price for fooc which was discarded because the lids failed to seal. Tile faulty lids were producet when Kerr modified its lid- sealing process. The first modi- fication did not produce consis- tent results and the process was changed, but Kerr said some lids containing the original com- pound were inadvertently shipped lo consumers. The department said further information could be obtainet by writing to Kerr Glass Manu- facturing Co., P. 0. Box 21 Oklahoma City, 73101. Want ads will help you fine part or full time employment!
