Gallagher’s Lo-GI Farmhouse Bread Recall [Ireland]

Ireland/Dublin: Gallagher’s Bakery recalls some Lo-GI Farmhouse Loaf Bread due to undeclared milk. FSAI: http://ht.ly/jG37N

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.

Additional information:
Transport Canada (“TC”) reports the fuel tank on the recalled Ford and Lincoln Vehicles may have been manufactured incorrectly. As a result, some of the fuel tanks may not provide the expected strength in the event of an impact and may leak. TC says a fuel leak may also occur even in the absence of a crash or other impact. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire, increasing the risk of injury and/or damage to property.
