The Menz Club, LLC is conducting a recall of V Maxx RX to the consumer level of the following lot numbers:

Single Count, UPC Code 2802803561, Lot Nos. 101108, 101009, 101010, 101011 , Five Count, UPC Code 0972859402, Lot Nos.: 101108, 101109, 101110, Ten Count, UPC code 0913251017, Lot Nos.: 301000, 301001

An FDA lab analysis of V Maxx Rx Lot # 101109 distributed by The Menz Club, LLC was found to contain undeclared sulfoaidenafil. Sulfoaidenafil is an analog of sildenafil, an FDA approved prescription drug used to treat Erectile Dysfunction (ED), making V Maxx Rx, an unapproved new drug. The Menz Club is recalling the above listed lots of this product which can pose a serious risk to health. Since the product has the same formulation, additional lots are being recalled.

FDA advises that this poses a threat to consumers because sildenafil may interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs such as nitroglycerin and may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels. Men with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates. The firm has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

The affected products may have been ordered online at www.vmaxxrx.com  or www.themenzclub.net and were distributed to customers and distributors nationwide. This product is marketed as a dietary supplement intended for use as a male enhancement product and is packaged in one (1) and five (5) count blister packs and ten (10) count bottles.

The Menz Club, LLC is notifying its customers and distributors by email and/or phone to return or destroy all recalled products.

Box 906, Madison, MS 39110. Customers with questions may call (601) 866-6746 Monday through Friday, 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM CDT for further instructions or information with respect to the return process.

PhotoAugust Foods Inc., a Downington, Penn. establishment, is recalling approximately 20,520 pounds of lamb koftis, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The lamb koftis contain milk, a known allergen that is not declared on the product label. 

The following product is subject to recall:

  • 11-oz cartons of "Saffron Road Lamb Koftis" entrées.

Each carton bears the establishment number "EST. 34624." The entrées subject to recall were produced on various dates between June 15, 2011 and May 3, 2012 and have sell by dates of one year after production. The entrées can be identified by sell by dates of June 15, 2012; July 19, 2012; July 20, 2012; Oct. 5, 2012; May 1, 2013; and May 3, 2013. The product was shipped to distribution centers in Illinois and Pennsylvania. 

The problem was brought to the company's attention by a consumer who suspected the product contained milk because of a minor reaction after tasting the product. The "lamb broth" listed as an ingredient on the product label is made by marinating lamb in yogurt, but the sub-ingredients of lamb broth are not listed. FSIS and the company have received no other reports of adverse reactions associated with consumption of these products. Individuals concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Tots In Mind Crib Tents and Play Tents Recalled

At least one fatality blamed on a tent collapse

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and five retailers are announcing a recall to provide refunds to consumers who own crib tents and play y...

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and five retailers are announcing a recall to provide refunds to consumers who own crib tents and play yard tents made by Tots in Mind, Inc.

CPSC is warning parents and caregivers who own these products that infants and toddlers are at risk of serious injury or death due to strangulation and entrapment hazards presented by these products.

Tots in Mind recalled the play yard tents in July 2010 and offered a repair kit that is no longer available. The company is no longer in business and has stopped all sales. CPSC staff urges parents and caregivers to stop using these crib tents and play yard tents immediately. Do not attempt to repair these products.

CPSC is aware of 27 tent failures including one fatality and one serious injury that occurred between January 1997 and April 2012 from crib tents and play yard tents made by Tots in Mind, Inc. In 2008, a two-year-old boy died after becoming entrapped between the bottom rail of a play yard tent and the top rail of a play yard. The fatality was reported in a prior recall in July 15, 2010.

In 2007, another two-year-old boy sustained a catastrophic brain injury when the crib tent affixed to his crib inverted and the product’s broken rod trapped him at the neck. The remaining 25 reports to CPSC involved inverted crib tents—entrapments between the tent and the crib/play yard or failures of the tent fabric and zippers. Three of these 25 reports also resulted in injuries; in one such case, a parent reported finding her child turning blue and entrapped between the product and the top rail of the play yard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said that a 29-year-old Colorado mother died in Andover, Mass. after fracturing her neck going down a Banzai in-ground pool water slide which had been placed over the concrete edge of a pool. The victim hit her head at the bottom of the slide because it had partially deflated.

The CPSC and the retailers are aware of two other injuries which have occurred in a similar manner, including a 24-year-old man from Springfield, Mo. who became a quadriplegic and a woman from Allentown, Pa. who fractured her neck.

The recall involves Banzai in-ground pool water slides designed for use with in-ground pools. The vinyl slides have a blue base, yellow sliding mat and an arch going over the top of the slide. By connecting a hose to the top of the slide, water can be sprayed on its downward slope. The words 'Banzai Splash' are printed in a circular blue, orange and white logo, shaped like a wave on either side of the slide.

The recalled slides, which were manufactured in China by Manley Toys, Ltd, were sold at Walmart and Toys R Us nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009 for about $250. The recalled slides have the barcode number 2675315734 and model number 15734. Both the barcode and model number appear on the original packaging but are not on the actual slide.

CPSC urges consumers to immediately stop using the product and return it to the nearest Walmart or Toys R Us for a full refund. Consumers can also cut the two safety warning notices out of the slide and just return that portion. For additional information from Walmart, call (800) 925-6278 between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.walmartstores.com. For additional information from Toys R Us, call (800) 869-7787 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. ET Monday through Saturday and between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, or visit the firm's website at www.toysrus.com

Kolcraft Bassinets Recalled

Latches can remain unlocked, allowing the bassinet to fall

Kolcraft is recalling about 46,000 Tender Vibes & Light Vibes bassinets. The latches that attach the bassinet base onto the metal frame can appear to be locked in place but still remain unlocked. This allows the bassinet to become detached from the metal frame, causing the bassinet to fall and the infant to be injured.

CPSC and Kolcraft have received seven reports of latches that detached from the bassinet frame. One infant received a bruised cheek when the bassinet detached from the metal frame and landed sideways on the floor with the infant inside.

This recall includes Kolcraft Tender Vibes bassinets with model numbers KB021-ARC, KB022-VER, KB039-CMR1 and Light Vibes bassinet with model number KB043-BNT1. A label with the model/item number of the bassinet is located on one of the legs of the metal frame. The recalled bassinets were manufactured from July 2008 through May 2010. The words “Kolcraft Tender Vibes” or “Kolcraft Light Vibes” is located on the removable music box which is attached to the side of the bassinet.

Mass market and independent juvenile specialty stores sold the bassinets nationwide and online from July 2008 through May 2012 for between about $50 and $100. They were made in China.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bassinets and contact the firm by phone or on-line to receive a repair kit and instructions for securing the latches to the metal frame. In the meantime, parents are urged to find an alternate, safe sleeping environment for the child, such as a crib that meets current safety standards or play yard depending on the child’s age.

For additional information, contact Kolcraft toll-free at (888) 624-1908 between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s website at www.kolcraft.com

Pets with Salmonella infections may have decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain. If left untreated, pets may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Infected but otherwise healthy pets can be carriers and infect other animals or humans. If your pet has consumed the recalled product and has these symptoms, please contact your veterinarian. 

Individuals handling dry pet food can become infected with Salmonella, especially if they have not thoroughly washed their hands after having contact with surfaces exposed to this product. People who believe they may have been exposed to Salmonella should monitor themselves for some or all of the following symptoms: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, abdominal cramping and fever. According to the Centers for Disease Control, people who are more likely to be affected by Salmonella include infants, children younger than 5 years old, organ transplant patients, people with HIV/AIDS and people receiving treatment for cancer.

PhotoHenry’s Farm Inc. is expanding the recall of its Soybean Sprouts, to include Natto Soybean Sprouts, because they may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections to individuals with weakened immune systems.

The initial date of the recall was April 27, 2012

The following products are being recalled by the firm.

  1. All clear plastic packages containing 1.5 lbs. Grown in Natural Spring Water Soybean Sprouts. The packages were not coded.
  2. All bulk (approximately 10 lbs.) plastic bags of Soybean Sprouts. The packages were neither coded nor labeled.
  3. All clear plastic packages containing 1 lb. Grown in Natural Spring Water Natto Soybean Sprouts. The packages were not coded.

These items were distributed to retail stores in Virginia, Maryland and Washington D.C.

The contamination was discovered after sampling by VDACS Food Safety and Security Program. Subsequent analysis by the Virginia Division of Consolidated Laboratory Services revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in the products. No illness has been reported to date.

Individuals who purchased Soybean Sprouts distributed by Henry’s Farm should return the product to the place of sale for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact either the company directly at 301.802.2996 or the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Food Safety and Security Program. at 804.786.3520.
