The Festival is a special celebration to pay tribute to the more than 150 4-H youth, their adult mentors and volunteers who have planted, tended and will harvest the gardens for the NH Food Bank (6,000 lbs of produce is the target for 2011).  Children will be treated to ongoing free, fun garden activities, and adults, families and the young’uns can participate in short tours and scavenger hunts in the garden held throughout the day.

Toasters and Candle Holders Recalled Due to Fire Hazard Risk

The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) has issued a recall for toasters and glass votive candle holders due to fire hazards. Consumers should stop using these products immediately. The USCPSC would like to remind consumers that it is illegal to sell or attempt to sell a recalled product.

Hamilton Beach Recalls Toasters

About 300,000 toasters, imported by Hamilton Beach Brands Inc. of Glen Allen, Virginia, have been recalled due to a malfunction with the heating element. The heating element can remain energized indefinitely when an item is placed in the toaster which may ignite the contents, posing a fire hazard if the toaster is near flammable items. Hamilton Beach has received 15 reports of toasters that did not pop up as intended, including three reports of minor damage to kitchen cabinets. There have been no reported injuries.

The recall involves model 22600 toasters with specific series codes. These codes begin with the letters “C” or “D” and have the format of CXXXXBI or DXXXXBI, where “XXXX” represents a four digit number ranging from 0190 through 5290. The model number and series code are printed on the bottom of the toaster. The toaster has a chromed steel exterior, a front control panel with a rotary toast shade selector and function buttons arranged in an arc, a front removable crumb tray and Hamilton Beach printed across the front of the toaster.

The toasters were sold at mass merchandisers, department, grocery, and home center stores nationwide, as well as various online retailers, from February 2008 though June 2011 for between $30 and $40. They were manufactured in China.

Consumers should stop using the recalled toasters immediately and contact Hamilton Beach to receive instructions on how to obtain a free replacement toaster. To contact Hamilton Beach, call 800-379-2200 anytime or visit the firm’s website. Visit the USCPSC website to view this recall.

Dollar Tree Recalls Glass Votive Candle Holders

About 117,000 glass votive candle holders, imported by Greenbrier International Inc. and sold by Dollar Tree Stores Inc., both of Chesapeake, Virginia, have been recalled. The candle holders can shatter while in use, posing a fire and laceration hazard to consumers. There has been one reported incident of a shattered candle holder, but no injuries have bee reported.

The recall includes frosted and clear glass votive candle holders with French Vanilla scented candles. The holders are 2.5 inches tall. The model number 976127 and date code 1010 are printed on the bottom of the candle holders.

The candle holders were sold at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Deal$ and Dollar Tree Deal$ stores nationwide from December 2010 through April 2011 for about $1. They were manufactured in India.

Consumers should stop using the candle holders immediately and return them to the store of purchase for a full refund. For more information, contact Dollar Tree Stores Inc. at 800-876-8077 between 9 AM and 5 PM ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website.

Not for Profit Dissolved by the State Continues to Request Donations

A organization representing itself as the Cairn Rescue League of Kingston, continues to request donations even after the state of New Hampshire dissolved the nonprofit in February of this year. Since 2010 the state has requested in writing and in phone conversations that the Cairn Rescue League to file reports and be properly registered in the state of New Hampshire. Other than one return phone call from the head of the organization all other contacts were ignored.

Attorney General Michael A. Delaney issued the following consumer alert to citizens in the State of New Hampshire:

Nonprofit organizations soliciting donations in the State of New Hampshire are required to register with and report to the Attorney General. Cairn Rescue League of Kingston, a nonprofit, charitable organization, has not registered with the Attorney General’s Charitable Trusts Unit despite repeated requests to file the required documentation. As a result, Cairn Rescue League of Kingston is in violation of New Hampshire law, including, but not limited to, RSA 7:28, I (registration requirements), RSA 7:28, II (reporting requirement), RSA 7:28, VI (breach of trust), and RSA 7:28-f (penalties).

Cairn Rescue League (“the organization”) was formed in 2000, “[t]o facilitate the pick up, transport, medical care, rehabilitation, fostering, and adoption of homeless or soon-to-be homeless Cairn Terries and Cairn Terrier mixes and to educate the public about responsible Cairn Terrier care and ownership.” The organization is subject to the jurisdiction of the Charitable Trusts Unit pursuant to RSA 7:21, II(b)(2) (“…established, in whole or in part, for any benevolent, philanthropic, patriotic, educational, humane, scientific, public health, environmental conservation, civic, or other charitable purpose or any person who in any manner employs a charitable appeal as the basis of any solicitation or an appeal that suggests that there is a charitable purpose to any solicitation …”).

On March 9, 2010, the Charitable Trusts Unit requested the organization to file an application for registration. The Charitable Trusts Unit sent another request on May 13, 2010, via certified mail addressed to all board members. Thereafter, on June 10, 2010, the head of the organization called the Charitable Trusts Unit regarding the registration requirements. Despite the telephone communication, and follow up letters sent by the Charitable Trusts Unit, no further response was received from the organization.

On February 15, 2011, the New Hampshire Secretary of State administratively dissolved the entity’s corporate charter for failure to file a required report.

The entity’s website www.cairnrescueleague.com appears to be current, and donations are requested on that website.

Attorney General Delaney asks potential donors to exercise extreme caution before donating to the Cairn Rescue League and, if any citizen receives a request for donations from this organization, please notify the Charitable Trusts Unit at (603) 271-3591 immediately.
