    Amport Foods recalls Amport Milk Chocolate Raisins

    The product may contain peanuts, an allergen ont listed on the label

    American Importing Co (d/b/a Amport Foods) of Minneapolis, Minn., is recalling one lot of Amport Milk Chocolate Raisins because they may contain peanuts, an allergen not listed on the label. 

    No adverse reactions or illnesses have been reported to date.

    This recall is based on a discovery that a container of Milk Chocolate Peanuts was erroneously labeled as Milk Chocolate Raisins.

    This product was distributed to Albertsons, Farm Fresh/Supervalu, Hy-Vee and The Kroger Co. stores in the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and West.

    The affected product is as follows:

    • 12-oz Clear Tub (UPC: 0 71725 71190 8) Lot Code: 078X344 Best Buy: 12-19-13

    The lot number can be found printed on the bottom of the tub in black ink.

    The label for this product also includes a statement "ALLERGY INFORMATION: THIS PRODUCT IS PRODUCED ON EQUIPMENT SHARED WITH PEANUT AND TREE NUT PRODUCTS."

     This recall relates only to a single lot of Amport Milk Chocolate Raisins. No other Amport products are affected.

    Consumers who purchased the affected product should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

    Consumers with questions may contact the company at 855-273-0466. Please mention "Milk Chocolate Raisin Recall".

    Ascorbic acid (cassava) 500mg/ml PF SUV130711@131/7/2014

    This recall was initiated after the firm was notified that Food and drug Administration (FDA) investigators observed methods used by Front Range Labs to assess sterility and other qualities (e.g., strength and stability) may have resulted in Wellness Pharmacy receiving inaccurate sterility test results on these lots. FDA has concerns that test results obtained from Front Range Labs may not be reliable.

    If there is microbial contamination in medications intended to be sterile, patients are at risk of serious infections which may be life threatening. Wellness Pharmacy has yet to receive any reports of adverse events related to this recall.

    Recalled medications were distributed to individual patients and physician offices nationwide. The liquid medications are in either clear or amber sterile vials ranging in size from 1ml to 50ml. They can be identified by the label on each vial, which will have the name of the drug, strength or concentration, lot number, use by date, and vial size.

    Wellness Pharmacy is notifying customers by phone and regular mail. Patients and physicians should immediately discontinue use of these lots of medications, and return the recalled unexpired medications to Wellness Pharmacy.

    To return medication or request assistance related to this recall, patients and physicians should contact Wellness Pharmacy at 205-879-6551 or 800-227-2627, Monday through Friday, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. CDT.  

    Wellness Pharmacy is recalling several sterile products. This recall was initiated after the firm was notified that Food and drug Administration (FDA)...

    Wilton Industries recalls Chefmate tea kettles

    Steam can travel up the handle, or water can spill from the spout, posing a burn hazard

    Wilton Industries of Woodbridge, Ill., is recalling about 717,000 Chefmate 2-quart tea kettles in the U.S and Canada.

    Steam can travel up the handle, or water can spill from the spout, posing a burn hazard to the consumer. In addition, the leaking steam can cause the kettle to fail to whistle. If water completely evaporates from the kettle, the aluminum bottom can melt onto the stove and pose a burn hazard.

    The firm says it has received five reports of steam traveling up the handle, three reports of hot water spilling from the spout and a report of a hot handle. In addition, four consumers reported the tea kettle base melting onto the stove burner. No injuries have been reported.

    This recall involves Chefmate 2-quart tea kettles sold with a black enamel finish and a solid black resin handle. The Chefmate logo is stamped on the bottom of the aluminum tea kettle.

    The tea kettles, manufactured in Indonesia and China, were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com from January 2006, through May 2013, for about $9.

    Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tea kettles and return them to any Target store, or contact Wilton Industries for a full refund.

    Consumers may contact Wilton Industries toll-free at (866) 255-9237 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT Friday.
