Recent Press Release

Blue-Green Algae Awareness

Blue-green algae blooms are a natural seasonal phenomenon that may appear in our lakes, rivers and ponds. Many of these blooms are relatively harmless; however, some species have the potential to produce toxins which may be harmful to people and animals. The presence of blue-green algae and its toxins can only be confirmed through a laboratory test, so we recommend taking a cautious approach when you suspect a blue-green algae bloom. Toxins are released when the algae cells break down; these toxins can cause skin irritation, nausea and vomiting. When exposed to higher concentrations you can experience liver problems.

Other packs feature fold out marketing materials or attractive ‘inner’ packs that encourage the user to discard the outside portion with the vital health warnings.
