Rugby Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablet Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Advance Pharmaceutical recalls some Rugby label Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets due to incorrect drug hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/mheMS

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm357909.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the recalled drug product is indicated for the temporary relief of minor aches and pains and is packaged in bottles of 120 tablet with an NDC 0536-3086-41 and a UPC 3 0536-3086-41 9. The affected lot of Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets is Lot 13A026 with Expiration Date 01-2015. The lot was manufactured and packaged by Advance Pharmaceutical Inc. under the label of Rugby Laboratories. Rugby Laboratories (Major Pharmaceuticals) distributed the product nationwide to wholesalers and retailers.

According to the FDA, consumers who self-administer the recalled Enteric Coated Aspirin Tablets 81 mg may, in fact, be inadvertently taking Acetaminophen 500 mg due to a mislabeling error. If this occurs, it may cause severe liver damage to those who take other drugs containing Acetaminophen, consumers who take three (3) or more alcoholic drinks every day or those who have liver disease.

The label directions instruct patients to take four (4) to eight (8) tablets every four (4) hours, but not more than 48 tablets in any 24 hour period. Consumers who take 48 tablets daily of the mislabeled and recalled drug product may be in fact be ingesting up to 24,000 mg of Acetaminophen. This is approximately six (6) times the maximum recommended daily dose of Acetaminophen (4,000 mg).

Black Forest Ham and Cheese Sandwich Recall [US]

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm358191.htm

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

  • Black Forest Ham and Cheese on a Pretzel Roll with Swiss Cheese and Country Dijon Honey Mustard Sandwiches with the Code Date and Sell By Date of “06/23/13 TFNJ 170 5:00am” packaged in an 8.7oz. plastic container.

About Tree Nut Allergies:
For some people, pine nuts (as well as other tree nuts including cashews, chestnuts, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pecans and walnuts) can be a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to walnuts or other tree nuts 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.

Kichler Lighting Aztec Chandelier Recall [US]

US CPSC RecallUS/Washington: Kichler Lighting recalls some Aztec Chandeliers due to injury hazard. CPSC: http://ht.ly/mh07C

Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Kichler-Lighting-Recalls-Chandeliers/

Additional information:
Aztec ChandeliersThe US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Aztec Nine-Light Chandeliers sold at Lowe’s stores under the Portfolio brand name. The recalled Chandeliers are metal with an “olde bronze” finish and measure about 31-inches wide and 31-inches high.

The Chandeliers come with etched amber glass shades and a decorative faux marble ball in the center. The upper arms of the fixture are single long curves and the lower arms of the fixture are “S” shaped. The word “Aztec” and model number “34330” are printed on a sticker located inside the ceiling canopy at the top of the chandelier.

According to the CPSC, the Chandelier’s fixture loop (the mechanism that connects the hanging chain to the lamp itself) can fail during use causing the Chandelier to fall from the ceiling and injure bystanders. Kichler Lighting has received six reports of the Aztec Nine-Light Chandeliers falling from the ceiling. The CPSC says the Chandelier were sold exclusively at Lowe’s Stores.

Granna’s #705 Tuna Mac Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Granna’s LLC recalls some #705 Tuna Mac due to undeclared egg, a known allergen. FDA: http://ht.ly/mgi7s

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm358087.htm

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

  • Granna’s #705 Tuna Mac with Italian Blend Vegetables and Spiced Apple Rings. This product is sold as a frozen dinner packaged in a black, three compartment heat sealed tray. Best By dates are printed on each package label, located on the top of the individual product.

According to the FDA, the misprinted packages of #705 Tuna Mac with Best By dates of 06/20/2013 to 06/20/2014 are subject to this recall. No other Granna’s products are affected.

About Egg Allergies:
For some people, foods made from egg (or egg ingredients) may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (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 egg 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.
