Presseerklärung vom 12. Mai 2000
Greenpeace findet Hormongift TBT in Babywindeln
United Poisons of Benetton and Pampers!

Berlin, 12.5.2000.
Greenpeace hat das Hormongift TBT (Tributylzinn) in verschiedenen Babywindeln, die in Deutschland verkauft werden, gefunden.

Windeln der Marke "Pampers Baby Dry" von Procter & Gamble, "Fixies Ultra Dry" von der Paul Hartmann AG und "United
Colors of Benetton Junior unisex" von LedysanSpa sind mit TBT und anderen giftigen Organozinn-Verbindungen belastet. Dies belegen Untersuchungsergebnisse, die im  Auftrag von Greenpeace durchgeführt wurden.

Aus Protest überreichen Greenpeace-Aktivisten heute Vormittag beim Bundeswirtschaftsministerium 500 Windeln. Auf einem Banner steht "Achtung TBT-Gift auch in Pampers!" Trotz der bekannten Gefährlichkeit von TBT gibt es in Deutschland noch immer kein nationales Verbot für die giftigen Organozinn-Verbindungen.

Die Belastung der Windeln reichte von 4,2 Mikrogramm (µg) TBT/kg in Benetton-Windeln über 4,7 µg TBT/kg (Fixies) bis hin zu 8,6 µg TBT/kg (Pampers). Außerdem  fanden sich weitere Organozinn-Verbindungen wie Dibutylzinn (DBT) und Monobutylzinn (MBT). Die giftigen Chemikalien stammen aus einem Teil der Windel mit direktem Babyhautkontakt.

"TBT ist einer der giftigsten Stoffe, die jemals  hergestellt wurden. Es kann über die Haut aufgenommen werden und vergiftet Umwelt und Menschen", sagt Greenpeace-Chemieexperte Thilo Maack. "Es ist  unakzeptabel, diesen extrem giftigen Stoff in Babywindeln zu verwenden. Die Bundesregierung muss dieses Gift sofort für alle Verwendungsbereiche stoppen."

Das Umweltgift hat eine hormonähnliche Wirkung. TBT kann in geringsten Konzentrationen das Immunsystem des Menschen schädigen und sein Hormonsystem beeinträchtigen. Greenpeace fand im vergangenen Januar TBT in Speisefischen und konnte trotz Entwarnung der  Textilhersteller im März TBT in Fußball-Trikots nachweisen. TBT wurde kürzlich auch in PVC-Böden
gefunden.

In Deutschland produziert die Firma Witco in Bergkamen 80 Prozent der weltweit verwendeten TBT-Mengen. TBT
tötet schon in kleinsten Mengen Algen oder Muscheln und wird deshalb in Schiffsfarben gegen den Bewuchs der Rümpfe eingesetzt. Greenpeace fordert seit Jahren die Chemie- und Schiffsindustrie auf, die Produktion und Anwendung zu verbieten. Für sämtliche Anwendungsbereiche der Organozinn-Verbindungen gibt es Alternativen.

Greenpeace untersucht zur Zeit weitere auf dem deutschen  Markt erhältliche Windelmarken. Ergebnisse werden im Laufe der nächsten Woche erwartet.

Presseerklärung vom 15. Mai 2000

Neue Tests bestätigen: TBT-Gift in "Pampers"
Greenpeace fordert TBT-Stopp für alle Anwendungen

Hamburg, 15.5.2000. Neue Untersuchungen im Auftrag der Umweltorganisation Greenpeace bestätigen, dass die"Pampers"- Windeln des Herstellers Procter & Gamble mit dem Hormongift TBT (Tributylzinn) belastet sind. Greenpeace hatte am vergangenen Freitag TBT in verschiedenen in Deutschland verkauften Babywindeln gefunden. Das Gift fand sich in "Pampers Baby Dry" von  Procter & Gamble, in "Fixies Ultra Dry" von der Paul  Hartmann AG und in "United Colors of Benetton Junior
 unisex" von LedysanSpa.

Bei der heute veröffentlichten Untersuchung (Siehe  Ergebnisse) sind einzelne Bestandteile einer "Pampers Baby Dry mini" getestet worden. Die Ergebnisse weisen  auf eine Hauptbelastung in den Bündchen hin. Hier wurden  bis zu 38,4 Mikrogramm TBT/kg (pro Kilogramm) gemessen.

Diese Werte liegen weit über denen der Mischprobe aller Windelkomponenten der ersten Untersuchungsreihe. Außerdem wurden die TBT- verwandten Organozinn-Verbindungen DBT und MBT gefunden. Bezieht man diese mit ein, ergibt sich eine Gesamtbelastung von 53,2 Mikrogramm Organozinn/kg. Organozinn-Verbindungen sind auch im Innen- und Außenfließ der Windel gefunden worden.

Diese Ergebnisse stehen im Widerspruch zu den Aussagen des Herstellers Procter & Gamble, der am vergangenen Freitag mitteilte, "Pampers" enthielten keine Organozinn-Verbindungen.

Greenpeace-Chemieexperte Thilo Maack dazu: "Die Reaktion von Procter & Gamble macht den Skandal komplett. Anstatt
 alles zu unternehmen, um die Gefahrenquelle ausfindig zu  machen, spielt der Konzern das Problem herunter." TBT gehört zur Gruppe der besonders schädlichen Dauergifte.  Es kann über die Haut aufgenommen werden. TBT kann in geringsten Konzentrationen die Abwehrkräfte des Menschen  schwächen und sein Hormonsystem beeinträchtigen."

Greenpeace-Untersuchungen wiesen TBT im vergangenen Januar in Speisefischen nach. Im März wurden Organozinn-Verbindungen - trotz vorheriger Entwarnung der Textilhersteller - erneut in Trikots gefunden. "Die  Verwendung dieser giftigen Organozinn-Verbindungen muss  sofort verboten werden. Die Verantwortung dafür liegt  bei der Bundesregierung - die muss handeln ," sagt  Maack.

Greenpeace untersucht zur Zeit weitere auf dem deutschen  Markt erhältliche Windelmarken. Ergebnisse werden im Laufe der Woche erwartet.

Hamburg 15.5.2000: Greenpeace hat am Montag weitere Labor- ergebnisse zum Thema TBT in Babywindeln veröffentlicht. Die Untersuchungen bestätigen die Aussage vom Freitag: Pampers-Windeln von Procter & Gamble sind mit dem Hormongift
belastet. Greenpeace fordert die Bundesregierung auf, TBT für sämtliche Verwendungsbereiche zu verbieten.

Bei der am Montag veröffentlichtenUntersuchung sind einzelne Bestandteile einer "Pampers Baby Dry mini" getestet worden. Die höchsten Werte wiesen die Bündchen auf, aber auch im Innen- und Außenfließ wurden die Tester fündig.  In den Bündchen wurden bis zu 38,4 Mikrogramm TBT/kg  (pro Kilogramm) gemessen. Diese Werte liegen weit
über denen der Mischprobe aller Windelkomponenten der ersten Untersuchungsreihe. Außerdem wurden die TBT- verwandten  Organozinn-Verbindungen DBT und MBT gefunden. Bezieht man diese mit ein, ergibt sich eine Gesamtbelastung von 53,2 Mikrogramm Organozinn/kg.

Diese Ergebnisse stehen im klaren Widerspruch zu den Aussagen des Herstellers Procter & Gamble, der am vergangenen Freitag  mitteilte, "Pampers" enthielten keine Organozinn-Verbindungen. Auf seiner Homepage macht der Windelproduzent auf Gutwetter:  "Procter & Gamble, der Hersteller von Pampers Höschenwindeln möchte allen Eltern versichern, dass Pampers Höschenwindeln völlig sicher sind, keine Organo-Zinnverbindungen enthalten und daher unbedenklich verwendet werden können."

Greenpeace-Chemieexperte Thilo Maack dazu: "Die Reaktion von  Procter & Gamble macht den Skandal komplett. Anstatt alles zu unternehmen, um die Gefahrenquelle ausfindig zu machen, spielt der Konzern das Problem herunter." TBT gehört zur Gruppe der besonders schädlichen Dauergifte. Es kann über die Haut aufgenommen werden. TBT kann selbst in geringen Konzentrationen die Abwehrkräfte des Menschen schwächen und sein Hormonsystem beeinträchtigen."

Leider kann Greenpeace noch keine Übersicht über den deutschen  Windelmarkt liefern. Besorgten Eltern bleibt bis zur Veröffentlichung umfassender Ergebnisse, Windeln verschiedener Hersteller zu nutzen. Oder sie greifen auf die gute alte
 Stoffwindel oder Angebote aus Bioläden zurück.

Greenpeace untersucht zur Zeit weitere auf dem deutschen Markt  erhältliche Windelmarken. Ergebnisse werden im Laufe der Woche erwartet.

FDA Urged to Halt Sale of Functional Foods Containing Illegal Ingredients

WASHINGTON - The Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) today urged the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to halt the sale of dozens of “functional foods” that contain ingredients not considered by the agency to be safe. In 158 pages of written complaints concerning more than 75 products, CSPI also urged the FDA to order manufacturers to stop making false and misleading claims about their products.

“Food companies are spiking fruit drinks, breakfast cereals, and snack foods with illegal ingredients and then misleading consumers about their health benefits,” stated Bruce Silverglade, CSPI director of legal affairs. “It’s shameful that respected companies are selling modern-day snake oil.”

On display at a press conference in Washington, D.C., were dozens of products targeted in CSPI’s complaints to the FDA. Those included:

Snapple’s “Moon” Tea Drink containing kava kava. It claims to “enlighten your senses.” Kava kava has been a factor in several arrests for driving while intoxicated (DWI). Kava kava is also used in Apple & Eve’s Tribal Tonics’ “Relaxation Cocktail” and Hansen’s “d•stress” sparkling drink.

Ben & Jerry’s “Tropic of Mango Smoothie” containing echinacea. Echinacea can cause allergic reactions, including asthma attacks, and may counteract the effects of drugs that suppress the immune system.

Arizona’s “Rx Memory Elixer” containing ginkgo biloba. This product is labeled as “mind-enhancing.” Ginkgo biloba acts as a blood thinner. Taking ginkgo biloba with anticoagulant drugs may increase the risk of excessive bleeding or stroke.

Procter & Gamble’s “spire Energy with VitaLift Green Tea and Juice Beverage” containing guarana extract. The label promises to provide “smooth, steady, sustained energy.” The FDA has stated that guarana is not considered to be a safe ingredient for use in food.

“Consumers are often deceived by false claims,” said Attorney General of Connecticut Richard Blumenthal at the press conference. “They are not told that many claims are not supported by valid scientific evidence. We need more vigorous FDA enforcement of current laws on label claims. In addition, I’m recommending that state attorneys general make functional foods a top consumer-protection initiative,” he said.

“Herbs are medicines that don’t belong in soft drinks, breakfast cereals, and snack chips,” said Varro Tyler, Ph.D., Sc.D., Distinguished Professor Emeritus at Purdue University and an internationally recognized expert on herbal medicine. “Companies that add herbs to foods to exploit consumer interest in alternative medicine are acting irresponsibly,” he said at the press conference.

The U.S. General Accounting Office (GAO) issued a report last week that strongly criticized the FDA’s regulation of functional foods. The GAO stated: “FDA’s efforts and federal laws provide limited assurances of the safety of functional foods . . .” The report concluded that while the extent to which unsafe functional foods reach consumers is unknown, the FDA should protect the public by halting misleading claims and requiring warning labels where appropriate. The GAO report also concluded that Congress should require companies to notify the FDA before using new “functional” ingredients.

“The FDA knows that the substances added to these food products are poorly tested at best or potentially harmful at worst and that the claims are not scientifically proven,” said Ilene Ringel Heller, a CSPI staff attorney. “By allowing deceptively labeled nostrums to remain on the market, the FDA has failed to protect consumers.”

A complete list of products that CSPI has asked the FDA to prohibit can be found at www.cspinet.org/reports/funcfoodcomplaint.htm.

FDA Issues Public Health Warning on Phenylpropanolamine

Widely used as a nasal decongestant (in over-the-counter and prescription drug products) and for weight control (in over-the-counter drug products.)

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a public health advisory concerning phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride. This drug is widely used as a nasal decongestant (in over-the-counter and prescription drug products) and for weight control (in over-the-counter drug products). FDA is taking steps to remove phenylpropanolamine from all drug products and has requested that all drug companies discontinue marketing products containing phenylpropanolamine.

Phenylpropanolamine has been marketed for many years. A recent study reported that taking phenylpropanolamine increases the risk of hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding into the brain or into tissue surrounding the brain) in women. Men may also be at risk. Although the risk of hemorrhagic stroke is very low, FDA recommends that consumers not use any products that contain phenylpropanolamine.

FDA’s Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee (NDAC) recently discussed this study and other information on phenylpropanolamine. NDAC determined that there is an association between phenylpropanolamine and hemorrhagic stroke and recommended that phenylpropanolamine not be considered safe for over-the-counter use.

Although this risk of hemorrhagic stroke is very low, FDA has significant concerns because of the seriousness of a stroke and the inability to predict who is at risk. FDA does not consider the conditions for which phenylpropanolamine is used (over-the-counter or by prescription) as justifying the risk of this serious event. Other products are available for use.

In the meantime, FDA stated consumers can identify over-the-counter cough-cold, nasal decongestant, and weight control products containing this ingredient by looking for "phenylpropanolamine" in the list of active ingredients on the label. Consumers can check with their health care provider or pharmacist to see whether their prescription cough-cold or nasal decongestant product contains phenylpropanolamine. FDA advises consumers to discuss alternative over-the-counter and prescription products with their health care providers or pharmacists.

California Grocery Recalls Ground Beef

Los Angeles, CA (SafetyAlerts) - La Villa Latina Market, a retail store at 4100 South Broadway said today it is recalling all ground beef produced before November 20, 2000. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service announced today the meat may be contaminated with E. coli 0157:H7, and was produced under unsanitary conditions,

The ground beef was packaged in various sizes according to customer request. Store labels on the packages may vary, however all ground beef from this establishment produced prior to Nov. 20 is subject to recall.

"Because of the potential hazard of foodborne illness from consumption of meat products contaminated with harmful pathogens, we urge consumers who have purchased the suspect product not to eat it and return it to the place of purchase," said Ronald Hicks, acting FSIS administrator.

E. coli 0157:H7 contamination was discovered through routine FSIS microbiological sampling on product produced on November 15. However, a follow-up inspection by the County of Los Angeles revealed unsanitary conditions at the store leading to a recall of all ground beef from La Villa Latina Market.

E. coli 0l57:H7 is a potentially deadly pathogen that can cause bloody diarrhea and dehydration. The very young, the elderly, and persons with compromised immune systems are the most susceptible to foodborne illness.

Lotronex Tablets Withdrawn from Market After Reports of Adverse Effects, Including 5 Deaths

Research Triangle Park, NC (SafetyAlerts) - Glaxo Wellcome has informed FDA that it will voluntarily withdraw Lotronex (alosetron hydrochloride) tablets from the market after reports of serious adverse events, which included 5 deaths.

Lotronex is a prescription medication approved to treat Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS) in women. The FDA is advising patients taking Lotronex to contact their healthcare providers to discuss treatment alternatives.

The company's action follows a meeting held earlier today with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) where the agency discussed with Glaxo Wellcome risk management options that included restricting the distribution of the drug or marketing withdrawal. Today's action follows FDA analyses of the post-marketing reports of serious adverse events, which included 5 reports of death in patients taking Lotronex.

Specifically, FDA has been concerned about reported cases of intestinal damage resulting from reduced blood flow to the intestine (ischemic colitis) and severely obstructed or ruptured bowels (complications of severe constipation).

As of November 10, 2000, FDA had received and reviewed a total of 70 cases of serious post-marketing adverse events, including 49 cases of ischemic colitis and 21 cases of severe constipation. Of the 70 cases, 34 resulted in hospitalization without surgery, 10 resulted in surgical procedures, and three resulted in death. FDA has received two additional reports of death that the agency did not classify as being cases of ischemic colitis or severe complications of constipation.

FDA has been closely monitoring the drug since approval on February 9, 2000. Prior to approval, four cases of ischemic colitis were observed in clinical studies and were discussed at a November 1999 meeting of FDA's Gastrointestinal Drugs Advisory Committee. These cases were transient, mild-to-moderate in nature and reversible upon discontinuation of the drug.

Between approval and June 1, 2000, FDA received seven post-marketing reports of serious complications of constipation. This resulted in the hospitalization of six patients, three of whom required surgery. During the same time period, FDA received eight post-marketing reports of ischemic colitis. This resulted in four hospitalizations, four endoscopic procedures,
and no surgeries.

On June 27, 2000, FDA convened a public advisory committee meeting where risk management options in response to the serious adverse event reports were discussed. No deaths were reported up to that date. The consensus of the advisory committee members was that both physicians and patients must be informed of the potentially serious adverse events associated with Lotronex.

Following the meeting, FDA updated the healthcare professional labeling for Lotronex and required the drug's sponsor, Glaxo Wellcome, to distribute a Medication Guide that warned patients directly about the risks associated with the drug. In addition, at the request of FDA, Glaxo Wellcome issued "Dear Healthcare Professional" and "Dear Pharmacist" letters to advise these groups of the important new information.

FDA continued to receive severe adverse event reports of ischemic colitis and complications of constipation associated with Lotronex. In addition, FDA received reports of death and more serious complications of ischemic colitis that required blood transfusion or surgery.
 

Upon completing its recent analyses of the 70 cases, FDA's view of the options included marketing withdrawal or a restricted drug distribution program. The restricted drug distribution program would provide: (1) safe use of Lotronex in appropriately informed patients, (2) continued access to Lotronex by severely debilitated IBS patients under closely monitored conditions, and (3) continued clinical research into the benefits, risks, and safe and appropriate use of Lotronex. FDA recognized that the other available treatments for IBS may offer inadequate relief from a condition that can be severely incapacitating for some patients.


At the conclusion of today's meeting, Glaxo Wellcome informed FDA that it will voluntarily withdraw Lotronex from the market.

Cub Foods Pulls Ground Beef From Shelves, Additional Retailers May Be Affected

Minneapolis, MN (SafetyAlerts) - SUPERVALU INC. said today it has pulled all fresh ground beef and unboxed, frozen beef patties from Cub Foods store shelves in Minnesota and western Wisconsin in response to the Minnesota Department of Health's link of E. coli to fresh ground beef products in these states. It is believed that any affected fresh ground beef or unboxed, frozen beef patties would have been purchased on or after November 1, 2000.

As a precautionary measure, SUPERVALU today also is removing all fresh ground beef and unboxed, frozen ground beef patties from Cub Foods stores in the Chicago and Indianapolis metropolitan areas.

This aggressive action was necessitated in part by the probable identification of a federally inspected Green Bay, Wis., packer -- American Foods Group, Inc., (AFG) -- as the source of the E. coli contamination. This identification was made possible through studies by the Minnesota Department of Health and analysis of product distribution records by SUPERVALU.

In addition, SUPERVALU also announced that it has begun a process to identify independent retailers in other states that obtained AFG-supplied fresh ground beef through SUPERVALU distribution centers. SUPERVALU is advising its independent retailers to follow its lead and immediately pull from their shelves all AFG-supplied fresh ground beef product and frozen ground beef patties that contain AFG-supplied ground beef. A list of 21 Minnesota independent retailers that received the affected product is included with this press release. These retailers have indicated to SUPERVALU that they are in the process of removing these products from their shelves. Consumers who purchased ground beef at one of these locations are advised to contact the retailer with questions.

"Our primary concern is for customer safety," said Mike Wright, chairman and chief executive officer of Minneapolis-based SUPERVALU, which owns Cub Foods. "That is why we have initiated this voluntary action and we have notified our independent retailers accordingly. We take very seriously the health of our customers and we are cooperating fully with state health department officials," he said. "This is an all-out effort for us. We also feel it is imperative that our retailers know that they may have received affected product and should take similar extraordinary action on behalf of their customers."

Upon notification Friday from the Minnesota Department of Health, SUPERVALU and Cub Foods immediately began to work closely with state officials in their investigation, as well as initiating a review of their own records. While most of the implicated product at Cub Foods or in the other retail stores has likely been purchased by this time, SUPERVALU moved quickly to remove all fresh ground beef and unboxed, frozen ground beef patties from its potentially affected Cub Foods stores and has advised its independent retailers to do the same.

Company officials have indicated that anyone who purchased any fresh ground beef product or unboxed, frozen beef patties from Cub Foods since November 1, 2000, may return it to any Cub Foods store for a full cash refund. SUPERVALU also has suggested to its independent retailers to extend a similar offer. The company added a reminder to all customers to cook all ground beef and hamburger products thoroughly.

Wright stressed that the company purchases its ground beef products from federally inspected processing plants. In addition, company stores are subject to ongoing, stringent third-party inspections and employees receive regular training and participate in food safety classes.

Wright also said that the stores will be restocked with fresh ground beef from other federally inspected meat packers.

Dr. Michael Osterholm, former Minnesota state epidemiologist and an international food-borne disease expert said, "Cub Foods and SUPERVALU have an exemplary history of cooperation with the state Health Department. They have taken the appropriate steps in this situation by exercising the utmost caution in the interest of public safety and health. Everyone involved is working diligently to determine the source of this issue as quickly as is humanly possible." Dr. Osterholm is serving as a consultant to SUPERVALU and Cub Foods.
