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.

Children’s Wooden Puzzle Toy Recall [US]

US/Washington: Small World Toys recalls some Spin-A-Mals Farm and Safari Puzzle Toys due to choking hazard. CPSC: http://ht.ly/k8AUU

Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Small-World-Toys-Recalls-Spin-A-Mals-Farm-and-Safari-Puzzles/

Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Puzzle Toys are Ryan’s Room brand Spin-A-Mals Farm and Spin-A-Mals Safari puzzles intended for children over 12 months of age. Both Puzzle Toys are made of wood. The puzzles consist of a painted, rectangular board with pegs mounted to it and removable gear and animal-shaped pieces. The Farm Puzzle Toy has 14 puzzle pieces including three animal pieces: a cow, a dog and a sheep. The Safari Puzzle Toy has 11 puzzle pieces. In both Puzzle Toys, children place the pieces onto the pegs and use the knob on one of the pieces or insert an animal figure into other pieces to rotate all of the gears. The puzzle boards have “2012 Small World Toys” printed on the bottom right.

The CPSC says the small pegs on the recalled Puzzle’s boards can loosen and separate from the boards. If this occurs, it poses a choking hazard to children.
