About Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning:
Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning (“PSP”) is a serious and potentially life threatening food poisoning caused by consuming contaminated bivalve mollusks, specifically mussels, clams, oysters and scallops. These shellfish are filter feeders and, by definition, can accumulate neurotoxins, called Saxitoxin, as they feed. This neurotoxin poison cannot be tasted or smelled nor can it be deactivated by cleaning or cooking.

When mollusks contaminated with neurotoxins are consumed by humans, the resulting PSP can be fatal in extreme cases, but especially in immunocompromised individuals. Children are more susceptible to PSP injury. Symptoms can appear very quickly (typically from ten (10) to thirty (30) minutes after ingestion), and include severe nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and intense stomach pain. Other symptoms include tingling or burning in the lips, gums, tongue, face, neck, arms, fingers, legs and toes. Shortness of breath, dry mouth, a feeling of asphyxia, confusion or slurred speech, and loss of coordination are also known symptoms.

If you suspect your food is contaminated, do not eat it. If you experience these symptoms and suspect Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning, seek medical care on an emergency basis, taking the suspected contaminated food for further analysis.

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

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 9-9-9 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.

You can learn more about Salmonellosis from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/HI6RYS

Children’s “Happy Drummer Cat” Musical Toy Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Huanyu Australia Pty Ltd trading as SJS Homeware recalls some Adventurer “Happy Drummer Cat” Musical Children’s Toys due to choking hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/lRE0Q 

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1048563

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports this recall pertains to battery-operated, blue and white-coloured Cat with Drum Musical Toys. According to the ACCC, the recalled product fails to comply with Australia Mandatory Standard for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age because the batteries are accessible without the use of a tool, or two independent movements of the battery compartment lid.

If children can open the battery compartment, they can gain access to the batteries inside. The batteries are classified as small parts, and therefore, present a potential choking hazard.
