M & M Meat Shops Gingered Beef Recall [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Mountain Top Foods recalls some M & M Meat Shops Gingered Beef due to undeclared mustard, a known allergen. CFIA: http://ht.ly/jxRTj

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/inspection/2013/26393r-eng.php

About Mustard Allergies:
For some people, mustard (and mustard products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to mustard 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.

Tea Collection Children’s Sleepwear Recall [Canada]

Canada/Ottawa: Tea Living recalls some Tea Collection Footies and Footed Romper Childrens’ Sleepwear due to flammability hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/jtJDn

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/26399r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports its sampling and evaluation program has determined the recalled Tea Collection Footies and Footed Romper Childrens’ Sleepwear 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.

Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Cribs’ drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail.

In turn, this entrapment can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the recalled Crib, causing serious injury. The CPSC says that Drop-Side Crib incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly of the product and happen over time due to age-related wear and tear.

Please note: the CPSC reports these recalled Drop-Side Cribs were sold exclusively at JC Penney Stores.
