#254662 - 02/27/06 04:02 PM Circuit Breakers Al/Cu

I rewired a circuit this weekend changing the wire from aluminum to copper. When I removed the breaker I noticed a label on it indicating it to be "Al/Cu". I know the devices (switches and receptacles) for aluminum wiring are required to be labeled CO/ALR now in lieu of Al/Cu. Is this also the case for circuit breakers? Do I need to replace all of the circuit breakers?

Al/cu will accept either.
