Pertamina Withdrawn Damaged LPG Canisters

State oil company PT Pertamina has withdrawn 500,000 damaged three-kilogram LPG canisters from markets in Yogyakarta and Central Java provinces. Manager of PT Pertamina ’s domestic gas affairs for Central Java and Yogyakarta, Ari Anggara, said here Monday the withdrawn canisters mostly had no Indonesian Industrial Standard Number (SNI) labels.

The SNI label indicates a product ’s quality. Ari Anggara said all of the withdrawn LPG canisters had been brought and kept in store houses in Yogyakarta and the Central Java town of Cilacap for repair or re-examination.

Despite the outcomes of the re-examination, he said he had yet to know whether those LPG canisters would be reused and distributed to the markets due to the absence of SNI labels.

Linda said the seminar was held to increase  women’s  knowledge and awareness about breast cancer and how to detect it at an early stage.  She said to protect more women from breast cancer her ministry would issue a policy whereby regional hospitals would be provided with mammography instruments.
The minister noted that many hospitals in the country lacked the equipment to detect breast cancer in women at an early stage and therefore, she would require hospitals in the country to include mammography tests in their general medical check-up packages. Linda called on all Indonesian women to remain  aware of the risk of breast cancer and the need to detect it as early as possible, if they had it.
"Breast cancer patients can still be cured, if the disease is detected in its early stage," she said.
