Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves a Deezo brand boys’, girls’, and toddlers’ zip-up Hooded Sweatshirts (“Hoodies”) made of 65% polyester and 35% cotton. The Sweatshirts and Jackets have designs that include a heart with arrow, swirl, alien, flower, guitar, motor scooter and circuit board designs and come in the following color combinations: pink with white or black trim; white with pink or green trim; blue with a light blue and white trim and black with blue or green trim.

According to the CPSC, the following model numbers are included in this recall: 12501, 2502, 12503, 12504, 12505, 12506, 12507, 12508, 12509, 12801, 12802, 12803, 12804, 12806, 12807, 12808, 12809, 12810.

Then, in July 2011, based on the guidelines and voluntary standard, CPSC issued a federal regulation.

Peanut Orion Cracker, Haitai Biscuit Recall [Australia]

Australia FlagAustralia/Canberra: SH Global Trading recalls some Walnut and Peanut Orion Cracker and Haitai Biscuits due to undeclared egg, a known allergen. ACCC: http://ht.ly/l4XNP

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1047714

About Egg Allergies:
For some people, egg (and egg products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Foods made from egg ingredients may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from egg products. Examples of these include words such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These ingredients (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing egg within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 0-0-0 in Australia or 1-1-1 in New Zealand 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.
