About E. coli enteritis:
E. Coli O121 poisoning is a serious and potentially deadly illness, typically transmitted using the fecal-mouth route by eating or drinking foods or beverages contaminated with E. Coli O121, eating unpasteurized (i.e., raw) milk and (raw) milk products and untreated water. Common symptoms of E. Coli O121 poisoning include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting, nausea and headache. People particularly at risk for serious E. coli illness and complications are the very young, the elderly or those with compromised immune systems.

Please note: this recall is an expansion of a previous recall issued separately by the FDA and the USDA. Please search for “Rich Foods” in the Search Box.

You can learn more about Escherichia coli O121 bacteria (“E. Coli O121”) poisoning by visiting the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/KwrDIf.

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).

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.

You can learn more about Listeriosis from Health Canada: http://bit.ly/KpaEaf

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.

Fluke Digital Multimeter Recall [Australia]

Australia/Canberra: Fluke Corporation recalls some Fluke 28IIEX Digital Multimeters due to injury, death hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/jJb9A

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1046591

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) says over time the plastic instrument case may develop cracks near the screws on the back of the unit. If cracks do, in fact, develop and if used in an explosive dust environment (IEC/EU: Zone 21, and US/CA: Class II, Division 1), ingress of conductive dust may cause a short circuit that could ignite a dust explosive atmosphere surrounding the unit, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.
