Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 27, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 3 Chocolate products recalled recall on .products of Regent Chocolate Ltd. of St. Hyacinthe, Que., is on again, the federal health protection branch said Tuesday. "We have three positive identifications of salmonella eastbourne in chocolate rabbits made for the Easter Dr. A. B. Morrison, head of the branch said in an interview. Although no cases of food poisoning from the chocolate rabbits have been reported to the branch, "we dcn't want a recurrence of the recent food poisonings caused by some of the company's Christmas chocolate he said. There are probably more than one million pounds of the company's products on store shelves throughout Canada, and it will take "at least a couple of days" to get them removed, he said. Meanwhile, the United States Food and Drugs Directorate had been notified and has issued a total recall for that country. The St. Hyacinthe plant, which has been closed for about two weeks, employs about 400 workers and produces 18 million pounds of chocolate products a -year. About 55 per cent of its merchandise is sold in the United States. It is the fourth time this month a recall has been made on the company's products because the salmonella micro-or- ganism has been found. Two of the recalls were for special varieties of the company's products while another, which was rescinded within hours because new evidence was uncovered, was for all its products. In Lethbndge, public health officer A. A. Byrne said today health inspectors will be checking stores for the chocolate products and requesting they be returned to the company. No cases of salmonella poisoning related to the chocolate have been reported here, he said. The illness is characterized by fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

The group, which reported more than a year ago to Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell, also advocated parallel governments for rural urban and purely rural regions. The report was not widely circulated when received by Mr. Russell in December, 1972, but was made available as information recently to the provincial municipal finance council. The council advises the provincial government on fiscal relations between the two levels of government. "Edmonton will absorb part of the municipalities to the south and possibly the report says. LETHBRIDGE DIFFERENT "Cities such as Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and Red Deer require different considerations The report suggests establishing boundaries immediately to accommodate the rapid growth of both Calgary and Edmonton.' Rural urban regions could be structured to provide "optimum" co-operation with adjoining regions. The report does not spell out which regions near Alberta's major cities are being considered, describing the regions as "the mixed urban, suburban and rural areas outside the solidly metropolitan regions The task force said the intent of its proposal is to provide "more economical and efficient service with a minimum of interference with smaller units of local government."
