Hi everyone --

Just a warning that the smell of acetic acid (vinegar) has been reported 
in the litho area.  This is due to the silicone RTV adhesive being used 
by the contractors for installation of the new Suss coater.  Although we 
believe odor is NOT harmful, it can be annoying and uncomfortable.  
Therefore, we ask that everyone avoid using the litho area until the 
odor has dissipated.  Please watch for the notices posted on the litho 

Your SNF staff
