Candy Dynamics Recalls All Toxic Waste 'Nuclear Sludge' Products

Candy may contain excessive amounts of lead

Candy Dynamics Recalls All Toxic Waste 'Nuclear Sludge' Products. Candy may contain excessive amounts of lead....

Circle City Marketing and Distributing, doing business as Candy Dynamics, Indianapolis, IN, is issuing a voluntary recall of all Toxic Waste brand Nuclear Sludge® products, all flavors, 0.3 oz (8 g) size pieces. The product is imported from Pakistan.

On January 13, 2011, the company previously recalled Toxic Waste Brand® Nuclear Sludge®, Net wt. 0.7 oz (20g) size, all flavors. With this recall of the smaller piece size, the company has now recalled all products labeled as "Nuclear Sludge®".

photo

Further testing by the company indicates that while some of the smaller sized products were below the FDA limit, some contain elevated levels of lead (0.101 parts per million to .311 ppm; the U.S. FDA tolerance is 0.1 ppm) that potentially could cause health problems, particularly for infants, small children, and pregnant women.

The company has determined to recall all lots and all flavors of the smaller sized product distributed from the product's inception in May 2009 through January 2011.

The smaller sized products are identified as: Toxic Waste® Nuclear Sludge® Cherry (UPC 0 89894 81901 1), Toxic Waste  Nuclear Sludge Green Apple (UPC 0 89894 81701 7), and Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge Blue Raspberry (UPC 0 89894 81801 4). Each individual piece has a net wt. of 0.3 oz (8 g) and were sold individually, as part of a 'Party Bag’ or Membership kit, and packed in 30 ct., 80 ct., and 120 ct. bags and a 120 ct. fishbowl.

No other "Toxic Waste" brand product, besides those labeled "Nuclear Sludge" is affected by this recall.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recalled Nuclear Sludge products were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders. The product was also distributed in Canada and in very limited quantities in Guatemala, Ireland, Jordan, Korea, Mexico and El Salvador.

The company is discontinuing the sale of Nuclear Sludge products in the U.S.

Candy Dynamics is sending recall notices to its direct customers. Anyone in possession of the recalled product should telephone the company for information on destruction of the product. Please call Eileen O’Neal at 317-228-5012 (Monday - Friday 9am - 5pm EST) for further information.

Keebler Recalling Some Fudge Shoppe® Jumbo Fudge Sticks

The company says the product, sold at convenience stores is mislabeled – contains peanuts

Keebler Recalling Some Fudge Shoppe® Jumbo Fudge Sticks The company says the product, sold at convenience stores is mislabeled – contains peanuts ...

Keebler® is recalling a limited quantity of 8-count cartons of Fudge Shoppe® Jumbo Fudge Sticks sold at convenience stores.

 

 

 

 

 

This recall was initiated because the cartons contain individually wrapped Jumbo Peanut Butter Sticks. The individually wrapped cookie sticks are correctly labeled. 

Life-threatening 

People who have allergies to peanut run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions. Because the individually wrapped cookie sticks contain peanuts, consumers with peanut allergies should avoid eating this product.

SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS Recalled PEEKAY INTERNATIONAL INC. cites undeclared sulfites ...

PEEKAY INTERNATIONAL INC. is recalling SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS because they may contain undeclared sulfites. 

People who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.  

The recalled SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS are packaged in uncoded, clear plastic bags in 7.0 oz and 14.0 oz sizes.

 

Swan

 

They were sold in the Brooklyn and Queens areas of New York City. 

Sulfites found 

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors and subsequent analysis by food laboratory personnel revealed the presence of undeclared sulfites in SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS in 7.0 oz and 14.0 oz packages which did not declare sulfites on the label. 

The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfites sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites. 

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem. 

Consumers who have purchased SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS should return the product to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-366-6100

Packaged Salads Recalled Because of Listeria Risk. Salads were sold under various brand names in East Coast stores....

About 300 Status Furniture "Rosebud" drop-side cribs sold at Land of Nod stores are being recalled.

The drop-side rail hardware on the cribs can break or fail, allowing the drop side to detach from the crib. When the drop side detaches, a hazardous gap is created between the drop-side rail and the crib mattress in which infants and toddlers can become wedged or entrapped, posing risks of suffocation and strangulation.

In addition, children can fall out of the crib when the drop-side rail falls unexpectedly or detaches from the crib. Drop-side rail failures can also occur due to incorrect assembly or with age-related wear and tear.

There have been 13 reports involving drop-side hardware that has malfunctioned or failed. No injuries have been reported.

This recall includes “Rosebud” cribs manufactured by Status Furniture. The cribs are white or antique white and have plastic drop-side hardware. “Status Furniture” appears on crib labeling on the lower portion of the headboard. Model number “910” appears on the assembly instructions.

The Land of Nod retail stores and www.landofnod.com sold the cribs from January 2003 through September 2004 for about $600. They were made in Canada.

Consumers should stop using these cribs immediately and contact The Land of Nod to receive instructions on how to receive a merchandise credit for the full purchase price of the crib ($599). The Land of Nod is undertaking this recall for its customers because Status Furniture is out of business.

In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on the child’s age.

For additional information, contact The Land of Nod at (800) 933-9904  between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or email at recall@landofnod.com, or visit the firm’s website at www.landofnod.com

Toyota Recalls Lexus Models to Check Fuel Pressure Sensor

No accidents or injuries attributed to the problem

Toyota Recalls Lexus Models to Check Fuel Pressure Sensor...

Toyota, struggling to regain its reputation for safety, is recalling nearly 1.7 million vehicles worldwide, including about 245,000 in North America.

The U.S. vehicles being recalled include 2006 through 2007 Lexus GS300/350, 2006 through early 2009 Lexus IS250, and 2006 through early 2008 Lexus IS350 vehicles. Dealers will inspect the fuel pressure sensor installation.

The company said that due to insufficient tightening of the fuel pressure sensor connected to certain engine fuel delivery pipes, there is a possibility that the pressure sensor could loosen over time. If loosening occurs, fuel could leak past a gasket used in the connection between the sensor and the delivery pipe and through the threaded portion of the sensor.

Lexus dealers will inspect the vehicle for fuel leakage and if no leakage is found, will tighten the fuel pressure sensor with the proper torque. If a fuel leak is confirmed, the gasket between the sensor and the delivery pipe will be replaced and the sensor will be tightened with the proper torque. The inspection and possible gasket replacement will be conducted at no charge to the vehicle owner.

Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a safety recall notification by first class mail once the parts that may be needed have been obtained. . Detailed information about this recall is available through Lexus 1-800-25 LEXUS or 1-800-255-3987 or at www.lexus.com/recall.

A separate recall is being conducted outside the U.S., involving 1.3 million vehicles to remedy a different condition on a different fuel delivery pipe and a high pressure fuel pump check valve. That recall does not involve vehicles sold in North America.

Today's actions bring the total number of Toyota recalls since fall of 2009 to 18 million vehicles.

Another Recall From McNeil Consumer Healthcare

Products include some lots of BENADRYL ALLERGY ULTRATAB TABLETS and EXTRA STRENGTH TYLENOL

Another Recall From McNeil Consumer HealthcareProducts include some lots of BENADRYL® ALLERGY ULTRATAB™ TABLETS and EXTRA STRENGTH TYLENOL ...

McNeil Consumer Healthcare is recalling five product lots as an addition to the list of products included in the company's January 15th, 2010, product recall. 

The additional lots involved are four product lots of BENADRYL  ALLERGY ULTRATAB TABLETS, 100 count, sold in the U.S.; and one product lot of EXTRA STRENGTH TYLENOL® Rapid Release Gels, 50 count sold in the U.S., Trinidad and Tobago, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico. 

Follow-up

This recall is a follow-up to the product recall that McNeil Consumer Healthcare announced on January 15th, 2010, and is being taken because the products were inadvertently omitted from the initial recall action. The company identified the omission and informed the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of its decision to add these product lots to the recall list.

All these products were produced before the January 15th, 2010, recall.  Since then, McNeil Consumer Healthcare has continued to analyze and evaluate 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA) and has sent that information to FDA.  The company stresses that this further analysis confirms the risk of serious adverse medical problems is remote.

Products involved

BENADRYL ALLERGY ULTRATAB TABLETS is sold over-the-counter and is indicated for the relief of allergy associated symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy throat, and itchy and watery eyes. 

EXTRA STRENGTH TYLENOL Rapid Release Gels is sold over-the-counter and is indicated for the temporary reduction of fever and for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains due to headache, muscular aches, backache, minor arthritis pain, the common cold, toothache, pre-menstrual and menstrual cramps, and flu.

The January 15th, 2010, recall was initiated as a result of consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor that has since been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA).  After a thorough investigation, it was determined that the source of TBA was the result of a breakdown of a chemical that is applied to wood used to build wooden pallets that transport and store product packaging materials.

Consumer actions

Consumers who purchased product from the lots included in this recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions on a refund or replacement.  For these instructions or information regarding how to return or dispose of the product, consumers can go online or call 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time).  Those who have medical concerns or questions should contact their healthcare provider. 

Any adverse reactions may also be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Program by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178, by mail at MedWatch, HF-2, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD20852-9787 or online

The product lot numbers for the recalled products can be found on the side of the bottle label.

Sprouters Northwest Recalls Clover, Clover Mix Products

May be contaminated with Salmonella

Sprouters Northwest Recalls Clover, Clover Mix Products. May be contaminated with Salmonella....

Sprouters Northwest, Inc. of Kent, WA, is recalling all of its clover and clover mix products because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recall was initiated January 1st by Sprouters Northwest after learning that a few cases of Salmonella might be linked to sprouts.  Sprouters Northwest, Inc. concluded that this type of cautionary, voluntary action was the appropriate and responsible reaction regardless of the limited information available.

The recalled clover products were distributed in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska in retail chains and through wholesale distribution.

The withdrawal includes 4oz. (UPC 8 15098 00201 6) and 5oz. (UPC 0 33383 70235 3) containers of Clover sprouts, 1lb. bags of Clover (UPC 0 79566 12351 5), and 2 lb trays of Clover (UPC 0 79566 12362 1). Also included are Clover Onion sprouts in 4oz. (UPC 0 79566 12361 4) and 5oz. (UPC 0 79566 12361 4) containers, Deli sprouts in 4oz. (UPC 8 79566 12305 4) and 5oz. (UPC 0 33383 70267 4) containers, Spicy sprouts in 4oz. (UPC 8 15098 00202 3) containers, and Brocco sandwich sprouts in 4oz. (UPC 8 15098 00028 9) containers. This affects all of the above products with a “best by” date of 1/16/11 and earlier.
 
Sprouters Northwest is cooperating fully with state and federal scientists in a comprehensive effort to help compile more information in an effort to better understand the possible source of the contamination.

Production of these products has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.

Consumers who have purchased these clover based products are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 253-872-0577 Mon-Fri 7AM -11AM

Surtex Foods Recalls Oaxaca String Cheese La Original

Cheese may be contaminated with Listeria

Surtex Foods Recalls Oaxaca String Cheese La Original. Cheese may be contaminated with Listeria....

Surtex Foods Co. of Los Angeles is recalling Oaxaca string Cheese La Original in their 17.63 oz/ 500 gr presentation because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes and Staphylococcus aureus.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

Staphylococcus aureus the bacterium responsible for producing toxins in foods, can cause gastrointestinal illness that usually begins 1-6 hours after eating contaminated food. The most common symptoms include nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. In more severe cases, headache, muscle cramping, and temporary changes in blood pressure and pulse rate may occur. The illness is usually mild and most patients recover after one to three days. In a small minority of patients the illness may be more severe. In these cases, some people, especially the very young and old, may require medical treatment for dehydration from vomiting and/or diarrhea.

Oaxaca String Cheese “La Original” ( 17.63 /500 gr presentation) was distributed in California through retail stores and distributors.

The recalled product comes in a 17.63 ounce (500 gr), clear plastic package marked- Oaxaca String Cheese, “La Original de Oaxaca” with a UPC code of 8 90512 00104 2, Lot # 1360912 with expiration date 01/09/2011

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the FDA which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem. NO OTHER PRODUCTS OR BATCHES FROM THIS COMPANY AND/OR PRODUCT THAT HAVE BEEN DISTRIBUTED WERE AFFECTED BY THIS RECALL.

Consumers who have purchased “Oaxaca String Cheese “La Original” ( 17.63 /500 gr presentation), UPC code of 8 90512 00104 2, Lot # 1360912 with expiration date 01/09/2011, are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Have You Purchased A Recalled Product?

Consumer Reports poll finds just 20% of consumers know they did

Have You Purchased A Recalled Product? Consumer Reports poll finds just 20% of consumers know they did ...

Have you bought something that was later recalled by the manufacturer or the government? Are you sure?

A recent poll by Consumer Reports (CR) finds only one-fifth of U.S. adults were aware of having purchased food, medication or a product (other than a car) that was recalled in the past three years.

The nationally representative survey, conducted by Consumer Reports National Research Center found that half of consumers were not confident that manufacturers and retailers provided safety information to government agencies. Two-fifths lacked confidence that manufacturers and retailers gave consumers with appropriate product recall information.

Full survey results appear in the magazine's February issue, now on sale.

Among the survey’s other findings:

  • Of the 20 percent of the population who believe they purchased a recalled product, nearly 40 percent responded that it was for food, almost 40 percent for a medication, and 24 percent for a product.
  • Less than one quarter of Americans researched a product they purchased to see if it was recalled.
  • More than half of Americans said they never or rarely filled out the registration cards that come with products.

 

Dangerous products

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), at least 124.7 million products were recalled last year and overall, recalled products were associated with 26 deaths. Tens of millions of children each year are needlessly exposed to unsafe products, toys, and foods that have been recalled, according to CR.

“Time and time again we’ve seen incidents of recalled products including bassinets, window blind cords and toys, killing or injuring children,” said Don Mays, senior director, product safety, Consumer Reports.  “Among the most effective steps to protect yourself is to get your name on manufacturer’s recall contact lists so that you can be notified when something you purchased is recalled. You can do that by mailing in product registration cards that come with many products or registering online. ”

Many miss out

Regardless of their skepticism regarding the sources of safety information, a large majority of U.S. adults felt that it was extremely important that consumers receive appropriate recall notices for medications and food. They appeared to be less concerned with notices connected to clothing and sporting equipment recalls.

However, when it comes to recalls of children’s sporting equipment, people were nearly as concerned that parents get accurate safety information, as they were for children’s food and medication recalls.

While only 20 percent of consumers were concerned that they personally missed a recall announcement in the past three years, some groups were more concerned than others. For example, concern appears to decrease with age.

More than a quarter of 18 to 24-year-old consumers were concerned they missed a product recall notice. This compares with less than a sixth of all consumers 65 and older. Parents of school and/or pre-school age children were also slightly more apt to be worried about missing such announcements than were other adults (26 percent vs. 19 percent).

In the loop

Consumers were more likely to find out about product recalls from the news than any other source. Nearly two-thirds of those who had experienced a recent food recall and a slight majority of those who purchased a recalled medication found out about the recall from a news report.

Finding out about product recalls was somewhat more varied. While a plurality of those who purchased a recalled product were informed of the recall via the news, one-sixth found out about the recall from the manufacturer and a little more than a tenth from family, friends or coworkers.

Recall Analysis

Consumer Reports analyzed all recalls publicly announced by the CPSC in its 2010 fiscal year that ran from October 1, 2009 to September 30, 2010. Other information was collected from the recalls database on the CPSC’s website. Here are some highlights:

  • Fisher-Price had the most recalls; five notices involved 11.38 million products. Various toys and high chairs were included.
  • The largest single recall involved McDonald’s Shrek-themed glasses with decals containing cadmium. Twelve million glasses were recalled.
  • Items intended for children represented 73 percent of recalled products. There were 177 recalls of children’s products amounting to 54.2 million items.
  • Strangulation was the hazard most often associated with the recalled products. That danger was common to all recalls of corded window coverings and of children’s outerwear with drawstrings.

 

The Consumer Reports Product Recalls survey is based on a nationally representative sample of American adults, conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center. A total of 2,005 landline and cellular random digit dial (RDD) telephone interviews were completed among adults aged 18+. Interviewing took place between August 19 and August 29, 2010. The margin of error is +/- 2.6 points at a 95 percent confidence level.

Fruta Planta/Reduce Weight Dietary Supplement Recalled. PRock Marketing, LLC is pulling all weight loss formulas and variation of formulas of the produc...

All Formulas of Reduce Weigh Fruta Planta/Reduce Weight products are being recalled.

A lab analysis by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has determined the products pose a threat to consumers because they contain the pharmaceutical ingredient Sibutramine, a controlled substance that was withdrawn from the market in October 2010 for safety reasons.

Sibutramine is known to increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients substantially and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias or stroke. However, no illnesses or injuries have been reported to the company to date in connection with these products.

  4. Reduce Weight Fruta Planta; 30 capsules/Box With GMP Sticker

  6. Reduce Weight; 30 Capsules/Box

 

The products listed above were sold and distributed nationwide via the Internet by several different Websites and can also be found in some retail locations.
