The United States Treasury has announced they are recalling the new Minnesota quarters. "We are recalling all of the new Minnesota quarters that were recently issued," Treasury Undersecretary Russell Shackelford said in a press conference Monday.

"This comes in the wake of numerous reports to this agency that the quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines, pay phones or other coin-operated devices. We believe the problem lies in a design flaw," said Shackelford.

The winning design for the Minnesota quarter had been submitted by Sven Petersen and Ole Johnson of Hibbing, Minnesota. Sven commented, "Who knew? Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and nickel together jams the coin-operated devices."
