Pro Series Translite Bike Rack Recall [Canada]

Canadian FlagCanada/Ottawa: Cequent Performance Products recalls some Pro Series Translite Bike Racks due to crash, road hazards. HCSC: http://ht.ly/ltim9

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/hc-sc/2013/31815r-eng.php

Additional information:
Health Canada/Santé Canada (“HCSC”) reports this recall involves some Pro Series Translite Bike Racks, specifically Model Number 63144. The recalled Bike Rack is a hitch-mounted bicycle rack with dual arms, each having four rubber cradles with hook and loop straps that hold the bicycle in place. The Bike Rack is capable of carrying up to four bicycles on a vehicle. The recalled products can be identified by the absence of a green sticker on the exterior surface of the product packaging or on the product itself. A green sticker identifies products that are not subject to the recall.

According to HCSC, some cradles used in the production of the Bike Rack may tear during use or if excessive force is applied to the cradle straps, potentially allowing a bike to disengage from the Bike Rack. If this occurs, and a bike falls onto the roadway, the resulting road hazard may cause a motor vehicle crash or property damage.

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/inspection/2013/33637r-eng.php

Additional information:2040 - VegaSportProteinBars
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”) reports the following Sequel Naturals food bars are subject to this recall:

  • Vega Sport Natural Plant-based Protein Bar Chocolate Coconut Bar, 60 grams; Lot Code: 12296C; UPC: 8 38766 10830 8; Best By Date: 19-NOV-13

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.

About Sulphite/Sulfite Allergies:
For some people, sulphites are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. In addition, those with Asthma or other respiratory problems may require immediate attention for serious and life-threatening breathing difficulties. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to sulphites (sulfites) 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.

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 about Listeriosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IScAKJ

Foster Farms Chicken Breast Strip Recall [US]

United States FlagUS/Washington: 201405 - USDA Logo smallFoster Farms recalls approximately 6,165 pounds of ready-to-eat (“RTE”) Grilled Chicken Breast Strips due to undeclared soy and wheat, both known allergens. USDA: http://ht.ly/lp5JE

Direct link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/News_&_Events/Recall_036_2013_Release/index.asp

Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Foster Farms food product is subject to this recall:

  • 4.5 pound cases containing 12 – 6 ounce trays of “Foster Farms Grilled Chicken Breast Strips Boneless & Skinless With Rib Meat 97% Fat Free”, with an identifying case code of “000606”

According to the USDA, the recalled Grilled Chicken Breast Strips bear the establishment number “P-20923” inside the USDA mark of inspection and a Use-By Date of “JUN 22 2013” printed on each tray. The recalled Chicken Strips were produced on April 23, 2013 and was distributed to retail establishments in Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

About Soy and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, foods made from soy and wheat ingredients pose serious and potentially life-threatening conditions. Worse still, it may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from either of these food products. Many foods, for example, have soy-based ingredients including edamame (soybeans in pods), hydrolyzed soy protein, miso, soy protein isolate, soy sauce, tamari, tempeh, teriyaki sauce, textured vegetable protein (“TVP”) and tofu. In addition, lax labeling laws in many countries allow manufacturers to use (but not declare) small amounts of soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others.

Likewise, wheat (and wheat products) can also be 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 should suspect products including 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 soy or wheat 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.
