Beverage manufacturer warns against glass flakes in bottles of Dixap
Manufacturer Covelt is recalling bottles of Dixap as a precaution, because glass flakes can get into them when the cap is turned. These are 500 ml glass bottles in the flavors yellow fruit, apple, summer fruit and pear, quince and peach. A possible production error can cause the glass to flake at the top edge, Covelt writes on his website. As a result, there is a risk that glass ends up in the drink, which is mainly given to young children.
Consumers who have a bottle at home with an expiration date between September 2022 and January 2023 are asked to throw away the contents. The purchase amount can be reclaimed from the store where the product was purchased. The Dutch Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA) also warns against the glass bottles.
Albert Heijn and Picnic will not deliver groceries on Sunday due to snow
Due to the expected snowfall, Albert Heijn and Picnic will not deliver groceries already placed on Sunday. Given the circumstances, according to the companies, it is not justified to send delivery people on the road. "We first looked very carefully at the situation, but it is irresponsible to take the road," said a spokesperson for Albert Heijn. "It is an extreme measure that we do not like to take." It is not possible for Albert Heijn to change the time of delivery. Customers can choose another day for their order.
Albert Heijn wanted to inform customers in time by e-mail that they should not count on a delivery person at the door on Sunday, so that they can still go to the supermarket themselves. The chain expects for the time being that distribution to supermarket branches can continue on Sunday, but is also keeping a close eye on whether this can be done safely.
Picnic has also informed its customers that deliveries cannot go through on Sunday, co-founder Michiel Muller said in a response to NU.nl. After Sunday, it is checked from day to day whether deliveries can be made. "We depend on road conditions, whether distributors can deliver products and whether our own drivers can get to work".
Code red applies throughout the Netherlands from midnight and all Sunday, the KNMI reports on Saturday afternoon. The country will then have to deal with snow, a lot of wind and light to moderate frost.
At SPAR, the delivery of groceries is arranged individually by the entrepreneurs. According to a spokesman, there is no insight into this from the head office. "We assume that the entrepreneurs will remain involved and, as always, do what they can do, but that they will put safety first," the spokesperson told NU.nl.
Nursing home Delfzijl has to throw away vaccines due to broken refrigerator
The Van Julsingha residential care center in Delfzijl has had to throw away the vaccines against the corona virus. The refrigerator in which the Pfizer vaccines were stored had a technical problem. A large part of the residents would be vaccinated today. In the center there are 120 living spaces where singles and couples live.
The nursing home found out on Thursday evening that the refrigerator was defective. The healthcare institution has decided in consultation with the RIVM to throw away the vaccines, because it could not be guaranteed that they still work. "We are very disappointed that it went so wrong," says director Geke Blokzijl of Noorderzorg, which includes Van Julsingha. 'We found that the temperature was not as it should be. That is why we have taken it for granted, safety first.' Blokzijl cannot say how many residents would be vaccinated. The driver states that this concerns a considerable number.
Not the right temperature
'We often have medication in the fridge. Then it goes well. This was a technical defect. The refrigerator indicated that the temperature was incorrect. It is therefore extremely annoying that we had to decide this.' The residents were informed Friday morning that they could not be vaccinated after all. Noorderzorg has now placed an emergency order with the RIVM to vaccinate the residents as soon as possible. Blokzijl expects this to take a few days.
Almost all newspapers do not appear today: 'Too dangerous to take to the road, especially for delivery drivers'
Almost all morning papers in the Netherlands are not delivered on Monday morning. All major publishers in the Netherlands consider the delivery of printed newspapers to be inappropriate due to the extreme weather conditions. According to them, it is too dangerous for drivers, distributors and delivery people. The AD e-paper (and regional AD titles in Utrecht, Rotterdam, The Hague, Amersfoort, Groene Hart, Drechtsteden and Rivierenland) can now be read digitally via newspaper.AD.nl . No login details are required for this.
"Various transport companies we work with have informed us during the day that they do not want to send their drivers on the road," says Gerda van der Poel, delivery director at DPG Media, publisher of AD, among others. “Then in this winter weather we would send 20,000 delivery people in the Netherlands out into the street and that is irresponsible. Locally it can be better than expected, but in the past we have had too many nasty accidents with delivery drivers who hit the road with these weather conditions.” In addition to DPG Media, the other publishers in the Netherlands (such as Mediahuis) also consider the delivery of morning newspapers on Monday morning not justified. The newspapers are not printed and delivered. They will be made by the editors on Sunday evening so that they can be read digitally this morning.
AD editor-in-chief Hans Nijenhuis: “As editor-in-chief, we think this is unbelievably unfortunate. We were raised on the adage that the newspaper always comes out. We do not want to disappoint our audience. Never. But of course we understand the reasons. ”
The digital newspaper of this site can be read for free on Monday, so you do not need any login details.
Gelderland school community pays ransom after ransomware attack
The Gelderland school community Staring College has been hit by a ransomware attack in which files were encrypted and a ransom was eventually paid to ensure the continuity of the school and education. This is evident from an e-mail that was sent to parents and about which De Gelderlander reports.
Due to the attack, which took place last Tuesday, no classes will take place next Monday, both offline and online. An investigation by a security company into the attack showed that so much data had been encrypted that the continuity of education and exams were endangered, director Carlien Krist-Spit said in a statement.
To guarantee the continuity of the school and education, the school community decided to pay the ransom. "This situation feels like a nightmare for everyone involved. The decision we have made goes against all our principles, it feels very bad. However, the importance of allowing education to continue, especially at this time, has been decisive. "said Krist-Spit. The director does not let us know how much has been paid.
