CUSTOMEDIX CORP. ANNOUNCES POSSIBLE ENVIRONMENTAL LITIGATION AGAINST JENERIC/PENTRON, THE COMPANY'S DENTAL SUBSIDIARY

 WALLINGFORD, Conn., Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Customedix Corporation (AMEX: CUS), a health care products company, today announced possible environmental litigation against Jeneric/Pentron Inc., Customedix's dental products subsidiary.
 A threat of litigation against Jeneric/Pentron Incorporated was made by the Environmental Law Foundation alleging violation of the state of California's Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, California Health and Safety Code, because of failure to give clear and reasonable warnings prior to knowingly and intentionally exposing certain individuals to a chemical (mercury) which is known to the state of California to cause reproductive harm. Mercury is found in some of Jeneric/Pentron's amalgam dental filling materials products.
 The original notice of claim is directed to certain California officials, and indicates that suit to correct the alleged violation may be brought. Jeneric/Pentron, Inc. is currently reviewing and investigating facts and issues relevant to the claim, and in the interim shall vigorously both protect its interests and defend against the claim.
