Fungicide recall

If you recently bought a pint of Ortho Multi-Purpose Fungicide Daconil 2787 (it's in a green plastic bottle), look on the back. Is there another label, one that says _ surprise! _ Sevin Liquid Brand Carbaryl Insecticide 2? Several thousand containers of Daconil have the extra label and were sold in lawn and garden stores this spring. The manufacturer, the Solaris Group, is asking consumers to voluntarily return mislabeled containers. Instructions for using the two products are different and the Sevin label doesn't carry as strong a warning about eye irritation. (If Daconil gets in your eyes, you should flush them for 15 minutes and contact a doctor immediately.) Consumers will be reimbursed for returned containers. Call the Daconil recall hotline at (800) 822-8052 between 9:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
