Levi Straus Recalling Girls Belts: The Consumer Products Safety Commission reported that Levi Straus & Co. will recall an estimated 36,000 red leather belts for girls. The commission said a metal tip on some of the belts may detach. It is small enough to be swallowed by a child and could cause choking. The firm has received one complaint of a child starting to choke on a metal tip, although the child was not injured, the commission said.

Don't feel like a small fry just because your firm failed to make The Times' lists of most profitable and largest companies. Some of California's largest employers and best-known institutions--including Levi Strauss & Co., Carnation, Kaiser Permanente and the University of California--didn't make the list, either. The survey for The Times 100 supplement was limited to California-based, publicly owned corporations. That excludes the countless privately owned firms, public agencies, nonprofit organizations and corporations based out of state, all of which play a major role in the California economy.
