Default Re: Strike anywhere kitchen matches, banned?

I don't know that they were "banned" as such, but I do think they quit making them because of liability issues. I've known a couple of folks who had some stuffed in a pocket and managed to light them off.

That was 30 or 40 years back, but if it happened now, somebody would be thinking they won the Lawsuit Lottery, I 'spect.
