Dunkin' Donuts Announces Withdrawal of Glow Sticks

CANTON, Mass. (October 5, 2007) - Dunkin' Donuts LLC is voluntarily withdrawing approximately 1,000,000 pink and orange Glow Sticks. Dunkin' Donuts has determined that the glow sticks distributed were not labeled properly to warn customers that the cap and lanyard, when dislodged from the glow stick, poses a choking hazard for children under the age of three (3) years old. The company has not received any complaints or reports of personal injury.

Dunkin' Donuts distributed the glow sticks free with every purchase of a dozen donuts or 25- or 50-count box of Munchkins donut hole treats beginning the week of September 24, 2007 at participating restaurants nationwide.

Consumers who have received a glow stick should take them away from children and discard them immediately. For more information, call Dunkin' Donuts Consumer Care at (800) 859-5339. Consumers also can visit the firm's Web site at www.DunkinDonuts.com.
