About Egg, Milk and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, egg (and egg products), milk (and milk products) and wheat (and wheat products) are a source of dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg, milk and/or wheat 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.

About Salmonella Poisoning:
Salmonellosis (Salmonella poisoning) is a very common type of food poisoning caused by the Salmonella bacterium. Although there are thought to be over 2,000 different kinds of these bacteria, only a comparative few make humans sick. Salmonella serotype “Typhimurium” and Salmonella serotype “Enteritidis” are thought to the two most common types in North America.

In young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems, Salmonellosis may cause serious and sometimes deadly infections. Even in otherwise healthy people, Salmonellosis may cause high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. In rare cases, however, Salmonellosis can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected Aneurysms) Endocarditis and Arthritis. 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 Salmonellosis symptoms.

United States FlagUS/Silver Spring: Maple View Farm recalls some Cookies & Cream, Carolina Crunch and Cookie Dough Ice Cream due to undeclared almonds, peanuts, soy and wheat. FDA: http://ht.ly/ky5ZL

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm349952.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports this recall affects 2,650 pints of Ice Cream distributed between September 5, 2012, and April 24, 2013. The products were distributed to a limited number of grocery stores and specialty shops in North Carolina, specifically Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Hillsborough, Mebane, Morehead City, Morrisville, Pittsboro, Snow Camp and Wilmington.

About Nut Allergies:
For some people, groundnuts and tree nuts are a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to peanuts, almonds or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

About Soy Allergies:
For some people, soy (and soy products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to soy or soy-based products within a very short time, possibly leading to severe injury and/or death.

About Wheat Allergies:
For some people, wheat (and wheat products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, wheat products may not “look” or “sound” like wheat. People with a wheat allergy would suspect products such as all breads, cakes, breakfast cereals, pasta, crackers, beer, soy sauce and even condiments, such as ketchup, as having wheat unless specifically declared otherwise.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk, egg or soy 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.

Kylin Motorcycle Helmet Recall [Australia]

Australia FlagAustralia/Canberra: Bulk Bikes recalls some Kylin XR-205 Motorcycle Helmets due to operational failure, injury hazards. ACCC: http://ht.ly/kyirY

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/10472851919 - KylinMotorcycleHelmets

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports some large sized Kylin Motorcycle Helmets do not meet performance requirements that are outlined in the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS1698:2006. There is, therefore, a possibility the helmets may not provide adequate protection to the wearer in the event of a crash and may increase the risk of death or serious injury to the wearer.
