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

  • Esbelin Siloutte Herbal Blend with L-Carnitine: this Supplement is marketed to help normalize nervous appetite as well as prevent fat accumulation and fluid retention in tissues. The Esbelin Siloutte Herbal Blend with L-Carnitine (30 Capsules) is packaged in a white plastic bottle with a screw cap containing 30 capsules per bottle. All lots of this product are being recalled. This Supplement was distributed nationwide to retail customers and via the internet. The UPC code for this product is 7502011000060.
  • Esbelin Siloutte Te: this Supplement is marketed as a fat burner, in that it is claimed to remove the fat stored in the body, thereby achieving elimination of the fat through the urine and preventing its accumulation. The product is also marketed to promote the proper functioning of the consumer’s digestive system. This product is packaged in a gold resealable foil pouch; the product does not have the unit size labeled. The recall includes all lots of the Esbelin Siloutte Te. This Supplement was also distributed nationwide to retail customers and via the internet. The UPC code for this product is 7562684652553.

According to the FDA, both Supplements pose dangers to consumers because Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of Coronary Artery Disease, Congestive Heart Failure, Arrhythmias or Stroke.

About Lead Ingestion Hazard:
According to Health Canada, Lead is highly toxic and can enter the body through the digestive system or the lungs. It accumulates throughout the body and can damage nearly every one of the body’s systems, but is particularly toxic to the nervous system including the brain.

Lead is especially dangerous to children even at low exposure levels and has also been clinically shown to have the potential to cause intellectual, behavioral and other problems in kids. Potential health effects associated with exposure to high levels of Lead in all ages include vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, coma and death.

Beng-Beng Chocolate Bar Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Carefour recalls some Beng-Beng Chocolate Bars due to undeclared milk and soy, both known allergens. ACCC: http://ht.ly/nbk5r

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/10498682295 - Beng-bengChocolateBars

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Chocolate Bars are subject to this recall:

  • Carefour’s Beng-Beng Chocolate Bars, sold in boxes of 25 Bars, each weighing 20 grams, for a total of 500 grams. All Best Before dates up to an including January 2014 are included in this recall.

About Milk and Soy Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) and soy (and soy 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” as if they are derived from 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).

Similarly, many foods have 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 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.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk and/or soy ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, ring 0-0-0 (Australia), 1-1-1 (New Zealand) or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical centre. 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.
