Asda fined £700k after health inspectors find live mouse on baking tray

first_imgAsda has been fined £700,000 after Environmental Health Officers found mice droppings and a live mouse at the bakery in its Bromborough store.The retailer appeared before Liverpool Magistrates Court yesterday (4 September) where it was also ordered to pay £34,856 in costs plus a £170 victim surcharge. Asda pleaded guilty to two offences under the Food Safety and Hygiene (England) Regulations 2013: failing to have adequate procedures to control pests and failing to ensure production was protected against contamination.The case comes less than a year after Asda was fined £664,000 following a mouse infestation at its store in Park Royal, west London.Mouse droppings found at the Asda in-store bakeryThe Bromborough offences dated back to 28 October 2015 when Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) visited the store following a complaint from a member of the public.Mouse droppings were found under shelving in the in-store bakery, under a water cooler, below metal storage cages and at the bottom of cooling racks. Officers also saw a live mouse on a baking tray and discovered mice droppings on a baking tray next to a cooled cookie.Asda agreed to close the bakery voluntarily until the EHOs were satisfied there was no longer a risk to health, and the bakery re-opened on 30 October 2015.Officers worked with the management team at Asda over the following weeks to remedy the situation and ensure there was no further risk to public health.Live mouse found between the baking trays Councillor Phillip Brightmore, Wirral Council cabinet member for the environment, said the council took complaints from members of the public seriously about food businesses who were breaking the law.“Although prosecuting a business is a last resort for the council, we will not hesitate to do so when we need to protect public health,” said Brightmore. “We are pleased that Asda stores have corrected the problem and have taken action to improve their systems.”Following the court case, Asda told British Baker: “Our customers rightly expect our stores to be cleaned and maintained to the highest standards and we are deeply sorry that, in October 2015, the strict processes we have in place failed in the Bromborough store.“Our customers can be assured that immediate steps were taken to address the causes at the time and that our high standards have been restored.”last_img read more

Korea Electric writes off investment for planned Bylong Valley coal mine in Australia

first_imgKorea Electric writes off investment for planned Bylong Valley coal mine in Australia FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Newcastle Herald:The South Korean energy company that spent a decade trying to start a coal mine in Bylong Valley has written off the project and nearly 700 million Australian dollars.KEPCO’s board marked down the value of its Bylong mining rights from $Aus642 million to zero in a report to the South Korean stock exchange in early January, despite the Australian arm of the company seeking a judicial review against the coal mine’s refusal in September.The South Korean state-owned company has also marked down the value of the 13,000 hectares of Bylong Valley land it owns between Denman and Mudgee by $45 million, after paying $115 million for properties since 2010, when it paid more than $400 million for the mining license.Analyst Tim Buckley, from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, said the write-off “doesn’t mean that KEPCO has walked away, but it clears the deck should they formally decide to walk.”Mr. Buckley said KEPCO documents showed the parent company made a net loss of $Aus1.158 billion in the nine months before September, when the NSW Independent Planning Commission rejected the Bylong coal mine proposal, in part because its greenhouse gas impacts would leave future generations paying the price for contemporary benefits. KEPCO’s total debts were more than their total equity value, which is “not a great position to go investing in yet more stranded assets,” Mr. Buckley said. “That is particularly at a time when the South Korean Government is re-prioritising its energy policy away from coal towards renewables and liquefied natural gas on rising pollution pressures,” he said.KEPCO planned to run an open cut and underground mine complex for 25 years and mine up to 6.5 million tonnes of coal per year for use in the domestic Korean energy market.[Joanne McCarthy]More: KEPCO says Bylong mine proposal has no value after refusal in Septemberlast_img read more

Soldiering Through The Silent Battle

first_img The bodies were children and the men working were trying to bury their young. Amidst the mid-day Caribbean heat and with anguished pleas for food, water and shelter resonating in his ears, U.S. Army Maj. Rob Schultz’s dusty boots tread the steep roads of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, like they have for the past twenty-some days. “There had been 100-plus children who perished,” Maj. Schultz said. “Around the schoolhouse were families, trying to dig out the remains of their children to be put to rest. At the time I showed up, the fathers had just entered a classroom that was crushed to the first floor and were removing the remains of seven children.” Despite the ascending mercury, the continuous cries and lengthy days, Major Shultz continued on his mission. “There’s just no survey, no inner review, nothing more powerful than those words to inspire you as to why the United States is here. It’s why we’re doing what we’re doing here and why we need to continue this effort.” And in a way only a dedicated soldier can, Major Schultz continued to do what he needed to do as a military leader –following the widely-held Army credo– he put the mission first and people always. “We’ve all had our own experiences with death and destruction throughout our careers, but I know that I have never experienced anything like that before,” said Sergeant Arier Santiago “The fact that these were children, on top of an already overwhelming incident, made it even more of a tragedy.” As Joint Task Force-Haiti Information Operations Chief, he was accustomed to filtering into the local community, assessing the needs of the Haitian people after the Jan. 12 earthquake that nearly leveled the already destitute city. By Dialogo March 09, 2010 “I spoke with a Haitian grandmother who’d been there every day over the past month, hoping to find the remains of her three grandchildren,” Maj. Schultz said. “She took a moment out of her pain and suffering to come over to me, to give a hug and to thank me — to thank the United States for being there with her and to say ‘God bless America.’ The soldiers did the only thing they could do: they prayed with the mourning families. But, along with the crushing and inconsolable sadness felt by those who have lost a child, a ray of resiliency and hope shown through. The sights and sounds made for an experience he and this teammate would never forget. As he proceeded upward, the sharp, high-pitched clash of shovel and sledgehammer against stone grew louder. The acrid stench of decomposing flesh and gangrene lay heavy in the air. Scanning the scene, past the cracked stained glass and broken remains of the adjacent church, his eyes fell upon a row of small bodies aligning the rock wall corner. Looking back to the thin, tired Haitian men, and then again to the tiny body bags, the situation became clear. This was not a cash-for-work program. This day, he and his two teammates — Maj. Dan Castro and Sergeant First Class Arier Santiago, found themselves assisting at a food distribution point, helping the Haitian women carry the allotted 55-pound bags of rice. While interacting with the local populace, he spotted a group of men working in a lot on the hill above– a cash-for-work program initiated by USAID. Major Schultz saw this as an opportunity to observe the effectiveness of the newly established program. “I’ve got four combat tours — two in Iraq, two in Afghanistan,” said Major Schultz. “I’ve seen more suffering and destruction here in Haiti than in all four combat tours combined. But, what I’ve also seen is an incredibly durable people in Haitians. Knowing this, seeing this, we’ll continue with the task at hand. We’ll help to reinstate the hope, faith and the solidarity that makes Haitians such proud people and makes Haiti such a resilient nation.”last_img read more

5 Guidelines for social media usage in your credit union

first_imgInstituting a governance structureDeveloping policies and procedures by: Matt WilhelmSocial media is stronger than ever as a tool for credit unions to promote their brand to new members. There are guidelines you MUST have in place in order to stay compliant with your social media strategies, however.  Here is a summary of the guidelines set forth by the FFIEC with regards to social media:1) A financial institution should have a risk management program that allows it to identify, measure, monitor, and control the risks related to social media. The size and complexity of the risk management program should be commensurate with the breadth of the financial institution’s involvement in this medium. Even if a credit union has chosen not to participate in this medium, it is still recommended by the FFIEC and associated agencies that the credit union have a mechanism to respond to comments and complaints regarding the institution on social media outlets. Follow your normal risk management program to address social media including: continue reading »center_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
