ABSTRACT
The article reports on the International Fabricare Institute's (IFI) announcement that it has changed its business name to Drycleaning & Laundry Institute (DLI) and on the letter received by the Toronto Health Board from Careful Hand Laundry and Dry Cleaning in Canada. The change of name, followed by the creation of a new logo, aims to reflect IFI's function. Meanwhile, the health board received a complaint about its failure to give warnings about a possible perchloroethylene ban.
