Bed Bath & Beyond pull Radioactive Metal Tissue Boxes Off Shelves
Health officials said they've removed a dozen metal box tissue holders containing small amounts of radioactive material from four Bed, Bath and Beyond stores in New York.

The level of radiation exposure from holding the tissue box against the body for one hour would be equivalent to a chest X-ray, said state health officials.

...contain low levels of Cobalt-60.

From India? I don't believe that. India must've gotten them from Japan then. They claim it was likely accidental contamination. Pfft. Whatever.

Once again:
Not long time ago at Seattle port:
Big freight came from "overseas" you know big ship ...metal containers. The moment 1st container unloaded....RAD sensors go off... feds swarm the place.. seal up the dock.
Container placed back on ship and sent south...panama...mexico ports...products will make it here via trucks.

Why only 12? What about other boxes that were made where these were? .. Wherever that may be. And they were splitting up a shipment of 12 boxes to 4 different stores, so only 3 per store? Last time I went to BB&B they seemed to have more than 3 of each item for sale.. peculiar.

Radioactive metal tissue boxes? That must be the "Beyond" part of the store. Kleenex armor is vital in today's world, but I prefer mine without the radiation, thank you.

Yes, this does not make much sense. Whenever these products are made you must make it large quanities because it is not cost effective to have a small amount at a time. Most manufacturers will not make it unless you make it because the components per part is too costly and many have privates plates that must be cut to make the product per company. Where is the rest of the stock? In their warehouse some where?

Perhaps it's not the metal that is the source of the radiation...maybe a highly radioactive item was sneaked alongside the cargo of these Chinese exported goods. The radioactive item polluted these metal tissue boxes and maybe other goods surrounding it while in the huge cargo box that ships and trains carry

Excellent link with great image...

They report 220 boxes were distributed across the nation!
Only the Ny store had their pulled?

I agree, your pets are your family, when I was a wee little kid me and my sister would chew on a dog bickie or more, goodo's were yummy. but some pet foods taste so bad. I don't eat pet food, but try it before you give it to your pet, see what your feeding them, its pretty nasty stuff like eating spam for every meal. just look up what is toxic to your pet in the foods we make and halt feeding them that. we used to as humanity, grow our gardens with food, the pets got the left over's there was no supersize me. your pets have a wondrous smell ability, we cook marvellous foods it drives them crazy, then we give them something from a can. just make up a serve for them and dinner is a time they will love to share with you, plus they get the scraps at the end, we also had a scrap bucket for the chooks. Maybe less on material stuff....wow metal tissue box holders in a non war zone made from scrap metal found by poor people with a little DU mixed in because the metal is sold by weight and collected from all places, India cuts up huge old ships and scrap metals....so some Depleted Uranium makes it way back to its country of origin.

Often when old radiotherapy machines in 3rd world countries are taken out of service they are sold for scrap metal !Everything including the small highly radioactive cobalt 60 source gets melted down so tge whole mess becomes radioactive.It is then recycled into metal objects.In the late 1970's most of our cobalt 60 machines were replaced by linear accelerators and were sold or given to the third world.......ever since there have been sporadic problems....Radioactive furniture from Mexico is one example that comes to mind......I will bet there is a whole lot more tissue boxes around though!One more reason to own your own Griger counter!

oh yes

"...AN AGEING, lead-lined machine was taken last year from the rooms of a retired professor at Delhi University and sold as scrap. The device was actually a gamma irradiation machine, used in experiments by chemistry students, and contained radioactive Cobalt-60.

Pulled apart by a scrap metal dealer, it unleashed a massive and deadly dose of radiation, killing one person and sending another six to hospital.

The accident was deeply embarrassing for the Indian government - experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency described it (pre-Fukushima) as the ''most serious global instance of radiation exposure since 2006''.

But the incident was thoroughly investigated by India's top nuclear safety authority, the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board, which oversaw the clean-up and search for other radioactive material inadvertently sold...."

Depleted Uranium was mixed globally into the scrap metal and is everywhere, and of course there are lots of other things too. Thats if they aren't deliberately getting rid of uranium byproducts in cement, signs, paints, dyes, solar, and products, which I suspect they are.

 Quoting: Sungaze_At_Dawn


Cobalt 60 is synthetically produced - but regardless this is just not on!

"Due to its quite short half-life, there is no natural 60
27Co in existence. Synthetic
60
27Co is created by bombarding a
59
27Co target with a
slow neutron source, usually californium-252 moderated through water to slow the neutrons down, or in a nuclear reactor such as a CANDU reactor, where the control rods usually made of steel are instead made of 59
27Co [5]
59
27Co + n →
60
27Co"
