I received this recall letter from amazon and thought I'd repost it here since I know some of you use this mic:

You're welcome! Glad to help. :-)

Ohyeah, please check with your local gov site, or the EPA site, for places to dispose of Hazardous Waste. You shouldn't throw the old bag in the regular trash.
