About Mustard Allergies:
For some people, mustard (and mustard products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing mustard 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.

Zydus Pharmaceuticals Warfarin Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Zydus Pharmaceuticals USA recalls some Warfarin Tablets due to overdose hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/lZVWu

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm356507.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Drugs are subject to this recall:

  • 2 mg Warfarin Tablets, Lot #MM5767, expiration date June 2014, NDC #6838205310.

According to the FDA, four tablets of Warfarin 2 mg Tablets, Lot MM5767, have been found to be oversized in one product complaint. Ingestion of a greater than intended dose of Warfarin, could lead to an increased pharmacological effect of Warfarin. As a consequence, people taking the medication would be more likely to develop bleeding as an adverse reaction and in some patients that bleeding into a critical organ (mostly the central nervous system) could be fatal. The risk of bleeding is increased if overdosing is repeated continuously on a daily basis.

About Warfarin:
Warfarin is used as a blood thinner and as such is a prophylaxis and treatment of Venous Thrombosis and its extension, Pulmonary Embolism (PE), prophylaxis and treatment of Thromboembolic Complications associated with Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and/or Cardiac Valve Replacement and reduction in the risk of death, recurrent Myocardial Infarction (MI) and thromboembolic events such as Stroke or Systemic Embolization after Myocardial Infarction.
