Fair Trading Warning re exploding Butane Cookers

Fair Trading NSW have issued a public warning regarding butane cookers. This is not one particular model. They have listed some brands and models in the warning. This warning comes after testing of these cookers was undertaken.

I wonder what authorities in your area are saying about these?

NSW Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe said, “If these products malfunction they can potentially cause serious injuries and I’d encourage people to stop using them.”

At last a Facebook warning worth reading:

The squirrel is Pteromys momonga or Japanese Flying Squirrel. A little information from The Red List:

This species is endemic to Japan, and is found on Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu (Abe, et al., 2005).

This species inhabits forests, from montane to subalpine zones (Abe, et al., 2005).

The cute Japanese native squirrel is not currently threatened but is not often seen as it lives at high elevations.

A laugh and an “awwww, how cute”, I believe my work here is done!
