PhotoWest Music is recalling about 6,500 Basic Beat standard egg shaker toy instruments.

The outer "end cap" that is glued onto the top, smallest part of the egg can come off, posing a small part choking or aspiration hazard. The company has received three reports of ends popping off, with no injuries reported.

The toy instruments are about the size of small eggs and have a "Basic Beat" label printed on the front of the product. The product is marked for children ages 3 years and older but West Music is concerned with the possibility of the egg being used by or near a younger child. The toy instruments have Lot Number 0E0212 located on the bottom of the roundest part of the egg.

The toys, manufactured in China, was sold at West Music stores, West Music Catalog, Westmusic.com, Amazon.com and at West Music booths at summer workshops from July 2012 through October 2012 for about $1.50 each.

PhotoTriple J Family Farms of Buffalo Lake, MN, is recalling approximately 15,270 pounds of bone-in ribeye products because the vertebral column may not have been completely removed. Federal regulations require the removal of vertebral column in cattle 30 months of age or older.

The products subject to recall are:

  • Approx. 40-lb boxes of "BEEF B/I RIB," bearing any of the following case codes: "91-R109H-C," "91-R109H-S," "91-R109H-C-SB," or "91-R109H-S-SB."

The products subject to recall bear the establishment number "EST.17466" inside the USDA mark of inspection. They were produced and packaged on various dates between Feb. 8, 2013, and March 21, 2013, and distributed to an establishment in New York for further processing and distribution.

The problem was discovered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) during a routine specified risk material (SRM) verification and may have occurred as a result of a recent change in the company's carcass separation practices. Vertebral column is considered a SRM and must be removed from cattle of 30 months of age or older in accordance with FSIS regulations. SRMs are tissues that may contain the infective agent in cattle infected with Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, as well as materials that are closely associated with these potentially infective tissues. There is no indication that any of the cattle slaughtered displayed any signs of BSE.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact the company's HR and Office Manager, Kendra Williams, at (320) 833-2001.

LifeScan recalls OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meters

At extremely high blood glucose levels, the meter will not provide a warning

LifeScan, is recalling and replacing all of its OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meters in the United States. At extremely high blood glucose levels of 102...

PhotoLifeScan, is recalling and replacing all of its OneTouch Verio IQ blood glucose meters in the United States.

At extremely high blood glucose levels of 1024 mg/dL and above, the meter will not provide a warning that the blood glucose is extremely high and will shut off, thereby potentially leading to incorrect treatment and delaying proper treatment.

The company says that while the likelihood of experiencing an extremely high blood glucose level of 1024 mg/dL or higher is remote, when such a blood glucose level occurs, it is a serious health risk requiring immediate medical attention. Because these products do not provide an appropriate warning at that level, diagnosis and treatment of extreme hyperglycemia may be delayed or incorrect treatment may be given resulting in potentially serious health risk or fatality.

Patients who are using the OneTouch® Verio®IQ Meter should:

  • Contact LifeScan Customer Service at (800) 717-0276 to make arrangements to receive a replacement meter at no charge and to speak with a LifeScan representative. Representatives are available 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. EDT Monday through Sunday (LifeScan U.S. Customer Service).

Patients may continue to test with their OneTouch Verio IQ Meters while they wait for their replacement meter to arrive as long as they are aware of this issue. However, LifeScan advises that if the meter unexpectedly turns itself off during testing, this could be a sign of extreme hyperglycemia requiring immediate medical attention and the patient should call a healthcare professional.

Notifications are being sent to all registered users, healthcare professionals, pharmacies and distributors wherever these products are sold. LifeScan estimates that there are approximately 90,000 active OneTouch Verio IQ Meter users in the U.S.

In the U.S., this recall affects the Verio IQ blood glucose meter from OneTouch. To date, no adverse events or patient injuries related to this specific issue have been reported. All other OneTouch blood glucose brands sold in the U.S., including OneTouch Ultra Meters, OneTouch Select Meters and OneTouch Verio Test Strips, are not affected.

Outside the U.S., this recall affects three Verio blood glucose meters from OneTouch. Three OneTouch Verio Brand Meters are being recalled outside the U.S. because of incorrect glucose value display or record storage at extremely high glucose levels.

These include the OneTouch Verio IQ, OneTouch Verio Pro and OneTouch Verio Pro+ Brands. To date, no adverse events or patient injuries related to this issue have been reported globally for the OneTouch Verio IQ and OneTouch Verio Pro+ Meters. For the OneTouch Verio Pro Meter, LifeScan has received one report of a serious adverse event, which occurred outside the United States. The company has not determined whether the OneTouch Verio Pro Meter was a causal factor.

Toyota is recalling model year 2007 through 2013 FJ Cruiser passenger vehicles

Problems with the seat belt retractors could increase the risk of injury

PhotoToyota is recalling model year 2007 through 2013 FJ Cruiser passenger vehicles.

The retractors for the front driver and passenger seat belts are mounted in the access door (rear door) panels of the vehicle. Due to insufficient strength of the access door panel, cracks may develop in the panel if the access door is repeatedly and forcefully closed over an extended period of time.

If cracks occur in the panel around the lower retractor anchor, the seat belt retractor could become detached, which could increase the risk of injury to an occupant in the event of a crash.

Toyota is currently developing a remedy and has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact Toyota at 1-800-331-4331.

Additionally, due to a loose ground connection, certain model year 2005 Pilots have a VSA system that may apply partial brake force, without the illumination of the brake lights, whether or not the driver is using the brakes.

Sudden inadvertent braking, especially without illumination of the brake lights, may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Owners will be notified and instructed to take their vehicles to a dealer of their respective brand. The dealer will install a partial wiring harness containing a capacitor for the VSA modulator, free of charge. The affected model year 2005 Pilots will have their ground connection tightened. The recall is expected to begin on, or about, April 12, 2013.

Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

Do product recalls work?

PhotoIf you are a regular visitor to this site, you know that product recalls are a mainstay. But, just how effective are they?

A new study in the the American Marketing Association'sJournal of Marketing suggests that product recall programs are beneficial to society as it often galvanizes action within a company and reduces accidents in the future.

While product recall programs have existed in the United States since the 1970s, the value of these programs have frequently been questioned. Critics of the product recall program in the automobile industry suggest that recalls actually increase the number of accidents because of the extra driving needed to fix problems.

A closer look

A team of researchers from the University of South Carolina and University of North Carolina (Kartik Kalaignanam, Tarun Kushwaha and Meike Eilert) examined the value of product recall programs. The researchers evaluated major product recalls experienced by 27 automobile makers between 1995 and 2011.

They find that product recalls leads to higher reliability and lower accidents in the future. It turns out that organizations rarely have the motivation to improve reliability beyond a certain threshold. Product recalls serve as the catalyst for changing the organization's practices which may not happen otherwise.

Furthermore, the researchers find that the learning outcomes are better when the products in the firm's portfolio share manufacturing plants, suppliers and components. One of the criticisms often leveled against auto-makers is that the practice of lean manufacturing is in some way responsible for frequent lapses in product quality. The researchers say that the evidence does not support this speculation. They, in fact, suggest that lean manufacturing enables firms to recover better from product recalls.

Improved reliability

Interestingly, the study also finds that brands of lower quality are more likely to improve reliability after a recall. The researchers suggest that brands of higher quality are often in 'denial' about lapses in quality and are less motivated to respond to product recalls.

Product recalls may be a silver lining for lower quality brands to improve their competitive position in the market. If recalls lead to more reliable products, isn't it better to have more and more recalls? Not really, say the researchers.

The message is that there is need for careful pre-market screening of products. This is not much of a priority for firms as they have the desire to grow rapidly. Growth and product quality, as we know, are rarely lock-in-step. The value of product recalls lie in curbing a company's desire to grow at the expense of quality.

PhotoByron Center Wholesale Meats, a Byron Center, Michigan, establishment, is recalling approximately 6,586 pounds of ham products. The products were were produced without a Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • Various weight packages of "Seven Sons Family Farms & Co." Diced Ham (fully cooked), Smoked Ham Sliced (ready to cook/fully cooked) and Smoked Ham Roast (ready to cook/fully cooked).
  • Various weight packages of "Heffron Farms" Diced Ham (ready to cook), Smoked Ham Sliced (ready to cook), Smoked Ham Roast(ready to cook), Ground Ham Smoked Pork, Smoked Ham Hocks (ready to cook) and Picnic Hams (ready to cook).
  • Various weight packages of "Byron Center Meats" Semi Boneless Ham (ready to cook), Canadian Bacon (not fully cooked), Smoked Ham Hocks, Smoked Pork Chops (ready to cook) and Smoked Picnic Hams.

The products, bearing the establishment number "Est. 2592" inside the USDA mark of inspection, were produced prior to March 1, 2013, and were distributed in Michigan and Indiana.

The problem was discovered when an inspector observed establishment personnel making diced and sliced ham products from whole hams. These hams were labeled as fully cooked, but the company does not have a HACCP plan for fully cooked product or a Listeria control program.

Further investigation revealed other Ready-To-Eat and heat-treated products produced without HACCP plans. HACCP plans, in which establishments identify potential hazards associated with a given product, and identify a means of addressing those hazards in the production process, are required for all products.

There are no reports of illness at this time.
