Albert Heijn responds to controversy over ‘dangerous’ pans
Albert Heijn says that customers are the pans that through a savings campaign can be purchased can just continue to use it. On social media, there was much commotion after a woman a message placed that its little birds dead on the floor of the cage layers after baking with the pan.
The supermarket chain recognizes that there are complaints are received, but states that the pans are safe to use in normal use, also for vogeleigenaren.
The woman suspected that her birds died because of the anti-stick coating of the pan, which according to her is made of Teflon. Her message was more than nine thousand times shared.
In normal use there is according to AH, however, nothing to worry about. “At temperatures higher than 350 degrees, there can be harmful fumes arise. So this is really only irresponsible and extreme,” said the retailer in a comment on their Facebook page. The harmful ingredient PFOA, prohibited since 2015, is not in the pan.
The retailer has contact with the complainants and with the suppliers to investigate what happened.
