In a recent paper, Slansky et al. have suggested that SU(3)c may be broken to SO(3) X Z, in order to explain the possible existence of fractionally charged states. We point out that there are low mass monopoles associated with such a symmetry breakdown and discuss their properties. Such states may be observable at LEP if not at PETRA energies.
