About Salmonella Poisoning in Animals:
Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning) is a very common type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella bacterium. According to the US Food and Drug Administration, animals with Salmonella infections may be lethargic and have diarrhea or bloody diarrhea, fever and vomiting. Some animals will have only decreased appetite, fever and abdominal pain.

It is important to note that infected but otherwise healthy looking animals can be Salmonellosis carriers and infect other animals or humans through various routes including oral-manual, oral-oral and oral-fecal. Always wash your hands thoroughly after feeding, petting or performing other activities with animals, especially those relating to waste elimination and disposal of fecal matter.

Murphy’s Home Bakery Apple Tart Alert [Ireland]

Ireland/Dublin: Murphy’s Home Bakery issues an allergy alert for some Apple Tarts due to undeclared gluten, milk, soya, sulphur dioxide (sulphites) and wheat, all known allergens. FSAI: http://ht.ly/jIQxC

Direct link: http://www.fsai.ie/news_centre/allergen_alerts/Murphys_Bakery.html

About Food Allergies:
For some people, gluten, milk, soya, sulphur dioxide (sulphites) and wheat (as well as their by-products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, many of these allergens are hidden and may not look or sound like their original foods. 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.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 112 or 999 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.

]You can learn more about food allergies from your local A&E, health authority or doctor’s surgery.

Babyhome Eat High Chair Recall [Canada]

Canada HCSC RecallCanada/Ottawa: Kushies Baby Products recalls some Babyhome Eat High Chairs due to strangulation hazard. HCSC: http://ht.ly/jIBO5

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/26465r-eng.php

Additional information:1813 - BabyhomeEatHighChair
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports the recalled Eat High Chair, model BH2104 (located on a label at the back of the high chair), was sold in three (3) different colors: orange, red and black. The product can be identified by the word “babyhome” printed on one leg of the chair and the word “eat” printed on the opposite leg of the chair.

Further, there is a printed white “babyhome” logo shaped like a backwards letter “h” on the seatback. The Eat High Chairs have a nylon fabric seat with a plastic tray and metal frame. The Eat High Chairs measure about 91 centimeters (36 inches) high and 61 centimeters (24 inches) wide.

Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) says the front opening between Eat High Chair’s tray and its seat bottom can allow a child’s body to pass through and become entrapped at the neck. This poses a strangulation hazard to young children when the child is not harnessed.
