The Food Standards Agency said the public health threat is 'very low', but that it would be monitoring the situation.
The scare started in the Netherlands and Belgium and it is thought that Dutch disinfectant is at fault.
They used to have a great tool buyer, bringing a variety of otherwise hard to find brands to stores, online and brick & mortar. I tried to remain positive, that it was okay if some new tools were made overseas, as long as the core tools were continued to be made here. Craftsman discontinued their Craftsman Professional brand, and slowly but very obviously, they stopped making tools here.
I don’t know what happened to them, but it was very noticeable when they left – the tool selection and brand variety stopped growing. Perhaps that contributed to the closure of Armstrong’s USA factory.
Customer service has gotten worse, tool selection has been stagnant in some areas, greatly diminishing in others.
Their website is not up to modern usability standards, in my opinion.
I remember getting frustrated and said something like: Sears stores cannot manage or man tool demo stations, or even have them in working order in the middle of the winter holiday shopping season.
I wanted to talk about some of the things that customers like me would like to see changed at stores, and the person I spoke to kept talking about 3D printing demos and workshops.
Aldi and Lidl stores in Germany have already taken millions of eggs off shelves amid fears they are tainted with traces of the pesticide Fipronil.
Supermarket giant Aldi said it was a 'purely precautionary' measure and added that eggs sold in its UK stores were produced in Britain.
Even before my misled optimism in 2015 for changes that never came, I had always felt that my comments and criticisms fell on deaf ears.
That’s why I posted an open letter to Sears, asking why they were cutting Craftsman Pro and USA-made tools from the lineup.
