Pinata Fillers, a mixture of candy and toys in
a plastic bag with net weight stated at 2
pounds, marketed under the Unique label.
None. All product in distribution.

Sales, Inc., Buffalo, New York (repacker).
Unique Industries, Inc., Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, by telephone on October 24,
1997. Firm-initiated recall ongoing.
46,896 bags were distributed.
Short weight - the product has 21% less weight
than declared on the label. Also the labeling
is false and misleading since it bears the
general statement "Candy made in U.S.A." while
individual candies are labeled as being
products of foreign countries.
