About Listeria Poisoning:
The bacteria that cause Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning) most often produce a gastrointestinal illness that can be quite serious or even fatal. Listeriosis in pregnancy, for example, may cause a miscarriage or fetal death. In other cases, people can develop Septicemia (a serious blood infection) or Meningitis (an inflammation of the covering of the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges).

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 Listeriosis symptoms.

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

According to the FDA, this recall is currently limited to a single, specific lot of Brach’s Malted Milk Balls consisting of 5,274 pounds of product.

About Nut Allergies:
For some people groundnuts (such as peanuts) and tree nuts (such as almonds, Brazil nuts 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 peanuts or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to nut 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.

You can learn more about food allergies from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IZWUlm.

Please note: this recall was originally published with milk also listed as an undeclared ingredient. This has been corrected in this updated version of the release. The only undeclared ingredients for this recalled batch of Brach’s Malted Milk Balls should be peanuts and Brazil nuts.

Minnie Mouse Light-Up Headband Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Hunter Leisure Pty recalls some Minnie Mouse Light-Up Headbands due to choking hazard. ACCC: http://ht.ly/nkX2f 

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1049982

Additional information:2311 - MinnieMouseHeadband
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports this recall pertains to a battery-operated black headband with a pink plastic bow with polka-dots that lights up and flashes. According to the ACCC, the recalled product fails to comply with Australia Mandatory Standard AS/NZS ISO 8124.1:2002 (as amended by the regulation) for toys for children up to and including 36 months of age because the batteries are accessible without the use of a tool, or two independent movements of the battery compartment lid.

If children can open the battery compartment, they can gain access to the batteries inside. The batteries are classified as small parts, and therefore, present a potential choking hazard.
