 EARLY DETECTION OF DIABETES AIDED BY FOOD 4 LESS STORES
 IN CONJUNCTION WITH OCT. 2 CAROUSEL OF HOPE FUNDRAISING GALA
 LOS ANGELES, Sept. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Food 4 Less Stores, including Boys, Alpha Beta and Viva, have extended their distribution of the symptoms of diabetes on imprinted shopping bags for the remainder of the month of September. The distribution throughout Southern California, in conjunction with The Carousel of Hope, the world's largest single-night fundraiser (expected to raise more than $5 million on Oct. 2, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel), is geared to increase awareness of the disease and promote early diagnosis.
 The star-studded benefit is the premier cause of philanthropists Barbara and Marvin Davis. "This generous public service of the Food 4 Less stores is terribly important. Early diagnosis of diabetes helps to prevent the complications of blindness, kidney failure, loss of limbs, stroke, heart disease and diabetic coma," Davis said.
 Earlier this year, The Carousel of Hope was helped in this effort by Adohr Farms Dairy, which imprinted the symptoms of diabetes on their milk cartons throughout the month of May, 1992.
 The symptoms of insulin-dependent diabetes are: Extreme thirst, frequent urination, excessive irritability, extreme hunger and loss of weight. The shopping bags also list a toll-free number through which the general public can get information about diabetes: 800-828-8293.
