 FOOTE, CONE & BELDING/CHICAGO HOLDS SUNBEAM-OSTER
 IN BREACH OF CONTRACT, RESIGNS ACCOUNT
 CHICAGO, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Foote, Cone & Belding/Chicago today announced that as a result of Sunbeam-Oster's breach of its agency contract, it late last week filed a $1.3 million complaint against the company in the Circuit Court of Cook County in Illinois, and resigned the account.
 "Sunbeam-Oster's outrageous conduct concerning media placement, advertising and creative work produced by FCB has left the agency with no recourse other than to resign the account and resolve the dispute in the courts," said Mitchell T. Engel, executive vice president and managing director of FCB/Chicago.
 "It is hard for us to understand why Sunbeam-Oster would take such actions just weeks before the busiest shopping time of the year," added Engel. "Clearly, the company's corporate management in Providence, R.I., has a different agenda than the Sunbeam-Oster kitchen appliance division we had been dealing quite positively with."
 The complaint charges that despite its prior approvals, Sunbeam- Oster attempted to cancel its holiday advertising space well after final media closing dates. The agency is owed for purchased space that can't be canceled and agency fees.
