The Husaberg motorcycles are colored blue, yellow and white with the word “Husaberg” printed on both sides of the shrouds covering the fuel tank. You can identify the model year by checking the letter in the 10th position of the vehicle identification number (VIN) on the right side of the steering head.

Fresh Thai Pepper Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Fruit Treasure recalls some Fresh Thai Peppers due to Salmonella hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/lASBP 

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm354345.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the recalled Fresh Thai Peppers were distributed from April 7, 2013 to April 10, 2013 to retail markets in California.

About Salmonella Poisoning:
Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning) is a very common type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella bacterium. Although there are thought to be over 2,000 different kinds of these bacteria, only a comparative few make humans sick. Salmonella serotype “Typhimurium” and Salmonella serotype “Enteritidis” are thought to the two most common types in North America.

In young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems, Salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. Even in otherwise healthy people, Salmonellosis may cause high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In rare cases, however, Salmonellosis can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected Aneurysms) Endocarditis and Arthritis.

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. Contact the retailer for a refund or replacement. Wash your hands, contaminated preparation surfaces, cutlery and serving dishes thoroughly with hot soapy water and dry. Contact your MD immediately if you experience Salmonellosis symptoms.

You can learn more about Salmonellosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/HI6RYS

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm354334.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Lam Sheng Kee’s Lobster Balls – UPC: 6949682804602
  • Lam Sheng Kee’s Fresh Fish Cakes – UPC: 6949682804589
  • Lam Sheng Kee’s Fish Package Eggs – UP:C 6949682804633

About Egg Allergies:
For some people, foods made from egg (or egg ingredients) may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing mustard within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to these foods within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.
