A significant recent trend has been the quest for examples of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox from hitherto unexplored domains in order to subject the incompatibility between quantum mechanics and local realism to a critical scrutiny. This motivates the present talk concerning the iggestigations related to an EPR-type example involving the decay of a JPC = 1-- vector meson into a pair of correlated neutral pseudo-scalar mesons; a typical example is the decay of the spin-1 Φ resonance, by strong interaction, into a pair of neutral kaons K° — K° (1–4). In this context, we discuss a new twist to the EPR paradox by taking into account CP noninvariance.
