Additional information:Cracker Barrel Candle Holders
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves Candle Holders designed to resemble a large Ant. The black metal Candle holders are 6-1/2 inches tall and were sold as either a male or female Ant. The male Ant has a polka dot bow tie and the female Ant has a white pearl necklace. Both Ants hold up a clear glass votive cup. The words “Backyard BBQ” and “Glass Votive Holder” are printed on the front of the packaging. The SKU number “426154” can be found on the underside of the packaging.

According to the CPSC, the decorative Ant’s arms, used to hold up the votive cup, can break. If this happens, a lit candle can tip over or fall out, posing fire and burn hazards.

The CPSC says the Votive Candle Holders were sold at Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores throughout the US in May 2013 and June 2013.

Farm Boy Plain Croissant Recall Expands [Canada]

Canada CFIA RecallCanada/Ottawa: Farm Boy 2012 Inc. expands existing recall for some Farm Boy brand Plain Croissants due to undeclared eggs and milk, both known allergens. CFIA: http://ht.ly/plbG0

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/inspection/2013/35935r-eng.php

Additional information:2558 - FarmBoyPlainCroissants
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (“CFIA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Farm Boy Plain Croissants, sold in packages of 6 units, 300 grams; UPC: 0 210018 203991; Packed-On dates from 2013.SE.10 to 2013.SE.23, inclusive. This expanded recall represents a longer production date range for the product.

Egg & Milk Allergies:
For some people, egg (and egg products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Foods made from egg ingredients may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from egg products. Examples of these include words such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These ingredients (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing egg within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

For other 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).

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: a person allergic to one type of food or other substance may also be simultaneously 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.

Safeway Angel Food Cake Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Safeway recalls various Angel Food Cake products due to undeclared milk and soy, both known allergens. FDA: http://ht.ly/pjGiX

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm370125.htm

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

  • Angel Food Cake; Sell-By dates: 9/1/13 to 10/1/2013; UPC: 2113010510

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, 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: a person allergic to one type of food or other substance may also be simultaneously 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.

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.
