Washington, DC 20555

Reference: 10 CFR, Part 21 Courtesy Notification

To Whom It May Concern:

This letter provides to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission a courtesy

notification as referenced by 10 CFR Part 21, paragraph 21.21, (4).

ACCUTECH, a division of B&G Manufacturing Co., Inc.  ("B&G"), recently

determined that heavy hex bolts supplied by the now defunct Cardinal

Industrial Products, L.P. ("CIP") in 1992 may be nonconforming.

On July 10, 1995, B&G purchased the name and certain other assets from

CIP, a limited partnership that had been formed and operated in Nevada.

B&G began its own nuclear fastener business at the same Nevada site and

temporarily used the "Cardinal Industrial Products" name before

officially adopting the trade name of ACCUTECH in December, 1995.

We believe this possible nonconformance situation was the result of

insufficient heat treating performed by CIP at the Nevada site.  The

heavy hex bolts under discussion are trace code M2.

Even though B&G is not bound to take formal action under 10 CFR Part 21,

and the obligation for 10 CFR Part 21 statutory notifications remains

with CIP, as a courtesy B&G is notifying the NRC of the situation.  In

addition, based upon records acquired from CIP, B&G is sending courtesy

notifications to customers who were shipped product from this lot by

Cardinal Industrial Products, L.P.

Sincerely yours,

Roy P. Reindl
