The World

September 01, 1985

British American Tobacco Co. withdrew up to 2 million cigarettes from sale after a woman bought a pack that contained a message saying animal-liberation activists had laced the pack with cyanide. The company said it had withdrawn all John Player cigarettes from duty-free shops in Britain after a pack was sold at London's Gatwick Airport with a message scrawled on its flap saying, "These cigarettes have been impregnated with cyanide. Animal Rights Liberation Front."
