Self Destructing Polythene Bags!

Naturally LivEco

Everyone agrees, don’t they, that the ubiquitous polythene bag is a huge environmental problem? They are wherever you look – in hedges, caught in trees, littering beaches, floating in the oceans and choking sea creatures. Even those ones disposed of correctly clog up landfill sites. The really scary thing is that no one  knows how long polythene will endure, estimates range between 400 and 1000 years!

value_pack_refuse_sacksThere is a solution to this problem, without extra cost to the end consumer (that means you) and without causing harm to the environment. It is so simple most people can’t believe it.An additive called D2W is put into the raw plastic during the manufacturing process. This is easy for the manufacturer to do – it is a bit like Jamie Oliver ‘bosching on’ a little bit of olive oil into his latest creation and the job is done.

By putting in this additive, the…

Safety alert and recall: 26,000 baby monitors recalled due to burn hazard | WPMT FOX43

A popular brand of baby monitor is being recalled over the possibility that the video monitor’s batteries can overheat, swell and expand and cause the battery cover to open or come off. This can expose hot batteries, posing a burn hazard to consumers.

The recall is for about 26,000 units of the Lorex CARE ‘N’ SHARE Series video baby monitor (in addition, 8,000 were sold in Canada.)

The model numbers included in this recall are WL3520, WL4320 and WL3401. The model numbers are printed on the back panel of the monitor. The monitors were sold in bundles with cameras. The monitors contain a blue lithium polymer battery and measure about 4 inches tall by 5 inches wide. The monitors have a white plastic back and either a white or black border. “LOREX” or “The Lorex Baby” is printed below the monitor screen.

Picture: Lorex Technology

Babies “R” Us, B&H, Best Buy, Target, The Home Depot, Walmart and online at http://www.amazon.com andwww.lorextechnology.com from May 2013 through April 2016. The video baby monitors were sold in bundles for between $60 and $140.

The firm has received 488 reports of batteries overheating and expanding; about 140 reports involved the swelling of the battery pack, causing its plastic casing to open or come off. No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled monitors and contact Lorex to receive a full refund.

GIANT removes pancake mix from shelves due to possible E. Coli | WPMT FOX43


CARLISLE, Pa.– Following a recall by Continental Mills, GIANT Food Stores, LLC and MARTIN’S Food Markets announced it has removed from stores Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix that may be contaminated with E. coli 0121.

The company was notified by its supplier that their product, a blueberry nugget, is made with a small percentage of affected flour which was recalled by General Mills because it may be contaminated with E. coli O121.

The Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix was distributed nationwide where consumers purchased product through retail stores.

If you have recently purchased Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake Mix 28 oz. carton with a best by date code between 3/30/2018 and 6/16/2018, and a UPC code 041449001289, please contact Continental Mills at 1-800-457-7744 for information to receive a full refund. Please dispose of the product.

If you have recently purchased Krusteaz Blueberry Pancake a 3.5 lb. bag, with a best by date code between of 4/27/2018 to 4/28/2018, with a UPC code 041449001487, please contact Continental Mills at 1-800-457-7744 for information to receive a full refund. Please dispose of the product.

GIANT/MARTIN’S customers can also take their purchase receipt to the store for a full refund.

Although most strains of E. coli are harmless, others can make you sick. E. coli O121 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. Seniors, the very young, and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

No illnesses have been reported, however, the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) continues to warn that consumers should refrain from consuming any raw products made with flour. E. coli O121 is eliminated by heat through baking, frying, sautéing or boiling products made with flour. All surfaces, hands and utensils should be properly cleaned after contact with flour or dough.

Consumers looking for additional information may call GIANT/MARTIN’S Customer Service at 1-888-814-4268 for more information. Customers can also visit the GIANT or MARTIN’S website.

Recall: Betty Crocker cake mix recalled due to potential E. coli contamination | WPMT FOX43


NEW YORK — General Mills Inc. recalled three flavors of Betty Crocker cake mix sold in the United States and Canada on Monday over E. coli concerns.

The recall includes Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip and Delights Super Moist Carrot cake mixes in the U.S., and Super Moist Rainbow Bit cake mix in Canada, a press release stated. The flavor chips in the mixes were made by the supplier Wondra, who announced a larger flour recall on July 1 over possible E. coli contamination.

There have been no reported illnesses, but consumers are advised not to eat the raw cake mixes and throw the recalled products away.

The following items are part of the recall:
Betty Crocker Delights Super Moist Party Rainbow Chip Cake Mix: Recalled Better if Used by Dates 25MAR2017, 28MAR2017, 27APR2017, 28APR2017, 23MAY2017, 24MAY2017, 25MAY2017

More E. coli cases prompt General Mills flour recall expansion | WPMT FOX43

Out of an abundance of caution, General Mills announced the voluntary recall of more than 10 million pounds of flour because it may be linked to the outbreak.

Out of an abundance of caution, General Mills announced the voluntary recall of more than 10 million pounds of flour because it may be linked to the outbreak.

General Mills on Monday announced another expansion of its flour recall. The move was prompted by an announcement from the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that four more individuals from two different states (Minnesota and Wisconsin) have developed E. coli illness linked to the flour.

One of those individuals is suffering from a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome. This results from E. coli illnesses that last longer and are more severe, according to the CDC.

There are now 46 cases of E. coli infection linked to this outbreak, which began in December. The most recent illness reported began on June 25.

Symptoms can include stomach cramps, diarrhea, vomiting and fever that can last five to seven days. Individuals who are very old or very young and those with compromised immune systems have an increased risk of becoming ill.

The youngest patient in this outbreak is just 1 year old and the oldest is 95. Most of those who have become ill, 80%, are female.

Gold Medal, Wondra and Signature Kitchens flour are included in the updated recall announcement.

“The expansion announced today includes select production dates through February 10, 2016,” according to the company. Previously, the recall was for products produced between November 4, 2015, and December 4, 2015. The specific items recalled, including some previously identified Betty Crocker cake mixes, are listed on the General Mills website. None of the recalled flour should be used, sold or consumed.

General Mills initially announced a recall of 10 million pounds of flour in June, which it said at the time was “out of an abundance of caution” because it was possibly linked to the outbreak. Earlier this month, the company expanded that recall. It says consumers should not eat uncooked dough or batter made with raw flour.

Democrat National Convention is missing the American flag.

Cry and Howl

I hate to say it bur after scanning a few of the speakers at the DNC I noticed something missing … the American flag. I didn’t see it once anywhere. Maybe I just missed it. There were Palestinian flags, Soviet flags among others of nefarious origin but Old Glory was no where to be seen.

Ah … the election is not about America anyway right? It’s about “values” and “principle” and “honor” and the “conscience” and blah, blah, blah …
