Somersault Pacific Sea Salt Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Somersault Snack Co. recalls some one-ounce Somersault Pacific Sea Salt Packages due to undeclared milk, a known allergen. FDA: http://ht.ly/mDQ3l

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm359602.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports following Sea Salt Packages are subject to this recall:2222 - SomersaultsSalt

  • Somersault Pacific Sea Salt one (1) ounce Packages in 6-Count Multi-Pack Boxes; Box UPC: 898403 00221 5 (located on the bottom of the box); Package UPC: 898403 00220 8 (located on the rear panel of each package); Sell By Dates: FEB061483 and FEB06148

The FDA says the recalled Somersault Pacific Sea Salt products were inadvertently commingled with Somersault Santa Fe Salsa flavored products. This co-mmingling of the two products introduced milk, a known allergen, to the Somersault Pacific Sea Salt Packages. At this time, all of the recalled Somersault Pacific Sea Salt Packages were distributed by Target Stores.

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.

Maserati Vehicle Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Ateco Automotive recalls some Maserati Quattroporte and Granturismo Vehicles due to steering impairment hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/mBVxl

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1048929

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports some Maserati Quattroporte and Granturismo Vehicles require replacement for both rear Tie-Rods for toe-in adjustment. According to the ACCC, the recalled Tie-Rods have been coated with an uneven thickness of paint, possibly leading to corrosion of the threaded ends. If the threaded part of the Tie-Rods corrodes, proper toe-in adjustment could be difficult to achieve. This may compromise steering and handling of the vehicle.
