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

About Walnuts and other Tree Nut Allergies:
For some people, walnuts and other tree nuts are 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.

Cabbage Roll, Potato Perogie Recall [Canada]

Canada CFIA RecallCanada/Ottawa: Mom’s Ukrainian Homestyle Foods recalls some Cabbage Rolls, Potato Perogies due to undeclared milk, soy and/or mustard ingredients, all known allergens. CFIA: http://ht.ly/mYGGm

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/inspection/2013/34621r-eng.php

Additional information:
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”) reports the following Mom’s Ukrainian Homestyle Foods Products are subject to this recall:2270 - MomsUkrainian

  • Mom’s Ukrainian Homestyle Regular Cabbage Rolls, 1 kilogram package; all product codes where milk and soy are not declared in the list of ingredients
  • Mom’s Ukrainian Homestyle Sour Cabbage Rolls, 1 kilogram package; all codes where milk and soy are not declared in the list of ingredients
  • Mom’s Ukrainian Homestyle Potato Perogies with Process Cheese Spread, 750 gram package; all codes where milk, soy and mustard are not declared in the list of ingredients; UPC: 6 27843 04772 8

About Milk, Mustard and Soy 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).

Likewise, 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.

In addition, soya (or soy)-based products are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions for some people, requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. Many foods have hidden or non-obvious 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 soya/soy in “artificial flavoring”, hydrolyzed vegetable protein, vegetable broth and others. Although levels of these allergens are comparatively small, they may cause dangerous allergic reactions, including Anaphylactic Shock.

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.

Please note: it is important to note that a person allergic to one type of food may also be allergic to others. Multiple undeclared allergens may compound symptoms in susceptible persons. Seek immediate medical care if you suspect you or someone else is suffering from Anaphylactic Shock.
