About Listeria Poisoning:
Listeria monocytogenes, 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.

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

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.

Ginger Candy Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Evershing International Trading recalls all Lucky Shing Company Ginger Candy due to Lead ingestion hazard. FDA: http://ht.ly/nIEv4

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm364133.htm

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

  • Lucky Shing Company Ginger Candy, slices of dehydrated Ginger coated in sugar. The product label reads, “Mut Gung Non, Ginger Candy”. The snack was sold in eight (8)-ounce sealed plastic pouches, and 12-ounce sealed shrink wrapped plastic tubs.

The recalled Ginger Candy’s ingredient list states the product contains the following: ginger, sugar, and water. Contact information on the label reads P. By: E.T.I, San Jose, Ca.  and a green coconut tree appears on the top of the label above the words “Coconut Tree Brand”.

According to the FDA, recent analysis of the recalled Ginger Candy by CDPH found that the product contains Lead levels as high as 0.12 parts per million (ppm). This concentration of Lead could provide up to 10.21 micrograms of Lead per serving and children under six (6) years of age should not consume more than 6.0 micrograms of Lead per day from all dietary sources. Therefore, sale of this Ginger Candy is prohibited in the State of California.

About Lead Poisoning:
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.

Common sources of Lead include the following:

  • House paint before 1978. Even if the paint is not peeling, it can be a problem. Lead paint is very dangerous when it is being stripped or sanded. These actions release fine Lead dust into the air. Infants and children living in pre-1960s housing (when paint often contained Lead) have the highest risk of Lead poisoning. Small children often swallow paint chips or breathe dust from Lead-based paint.
  • Toys and furniture painted before 1976. After this date, paint was reformulated to remove Lead
  • Painted toys and decorations made outside the US and Canada.
  • Lead bullets, fishing sinkers, curtain weights.
  • Old plumbing, pipes and faucets. Lead can be found in drinking water in homes containing pipes that were connected with Lead solder. Although new building codes require Lead-free solder, Lead can be still found in some modern faucets.
  • Soil contaminated by decades of car exhaust or years of house paint scrapings. Lead is more common in soil near highways and old houses.
  • Hobbies involving soldering, stained glass, jewelry making, pottery glazing, and miniature Lead figures (always look at labels to help determine risk).
  • Children’s paint sets and art supplies (again, always look at labels to help determine risk).
  • Pewter pitchers and dinnerware.
  • Storage batteries.
