The Panama-registered MSC Zoe shed the containers containing mostly toys, furniture and auto spare parts while battling a storm, that was dubbed 'Zeetje' off the Frisian Islands, an archipelago off the northwestern Dutch coast also known as the Wadden
Islands.
The storm also caused flooding and other damage in northern Germany.
The Dutch coastguard tweeted that three of the containers contained, in powder form, highly flammable, potentially dangerous organic peroxides used in making plastics which can cause irritation if breathed in.

Allready some 30 containers beached on two islands here in the North of The Netherlands. People on these islands are as we call it "jutten" collecting things from the beaches. From sneakers to Ikea furniture to flatscreen tv's. Legally the items are worthless as soon they have been in contact with sea water and local people are allowed to take them. flatscreen.jpeg
