Youth Flannel Pant & Tees Recall [Canada]

Canada FlagCanada/Ottawa: Youth Flannel Pant & Tees Recall [Canada]Cows recalls some Youth Flannel Pant and Tee Sets and Youth Flannel Pants due to flammability hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/jBNEZ

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/26413r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Youth Flannel Pant and Tee Sets and Youth Flannel Pants do not meet the flammability requirements for children’s sleepwear under Canadian law.

Loose-fitting children’s sleepwear can contact ignition sources such as stove elements, candles, and matches more readily than tight-fitting sleepwear, and once ignited will burn rapidly, potentially resulting in severe burns to large areas of the child’s body. For this reason, cotton is not permitted in loose-fitting sleepwear.

About Listeria Poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges). You cannot tell if a food contains the bacteria that causes Listeriosis by sight or smell. 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 Listeriosis symptoms.

About Milk Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk or milk 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.

Central-Epicure Gefilte Fish Recall [Canada]

About Botulism:
Health Canada says Botulism is a rare but serious paralytic illness caused by a nerve poison that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum (C. botulinum). Foodborne botulism is caused by eating foods that contain the botulism toxin. You can also get Botulism from an infected wound. All forms of Botulism can cause paralysis and be fatal so emergency medical attention is necessary.

Clostridium botulinum bacteria cannot grow in air, so Foodborne Botulism is usually seen only when certain foods are stored or prepared improperly. These typically include the following:

  • Improperly prepared low-acid, home-canned foods (such as asparagus, beets, green beans, mushrooms, peppers);
  • Improperly smoked fish;
  • Improperly prepared raw marine mammal meat (such as whale, walrus, seal);
  • Non-refrigerated storage of low-acid fruit juices (such as carrot juice); and
  • Baked potatoes improperly stored in aluminum foil.
