Additional information:2497 - Eco-NoveltyCosmoBeadToys
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports Eco-Novelty’s Cosmo Beads Jumbo Size Colorful Water Balls and Jumbo Multipurpose Colorful Water Balls Toys are being recalled.

The “Bead Toys” are small, water-absorbing beads that when placed in water hydrate and swell up to the size of a racquetball. The Bead Toy packages have the following text printed on the front, “Cosmo Beads Colorful Water Balls, Just Add Water, Biodegradable, Non-toxic and Colorfast.” The packages have yellow and black color on the upper left corner and red in the lower right corner. The Bead Toys can be seen through an oval, cellophane window near the bottom of the package.

Cosmo Beads Jumbo Size were sold as single packets of Beads in various colors: clear, green, purple, red and mixed colors. Each packet contains a variety of Bead sizes. The front of the Jumbo Size package has a picture of a hand holding two water balls and the text “Grows up to 600X (1.5″) Size.”

Cosmo Beads Jumbo Multipurpose came in three packets per set. Each packet contains Beads in one size and comes in clear, dark purple and orange colors. The front of the Jumbo Multipurpose packet has a picture of flowers in a glass vase and the words “Deco Centerpiece: Toys-Games: Plant-Vacation watering.”

According to the CPSC, the hard, colorful Bead Toys can be easily mistaken for candy by a child. When the Bead Toy is ingested, it expands and can cause intestinal obstructions inside a child’s body, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. The Bead Toy requires surgery to be removed from the body. Due to their composition, similar toys have not shown up on X-Rays, making the removal process even more difficult.

Galant Food Calzone Recall [US]

US USDA RecallUS/Washington: Galant Food Company recalls approximately 1,650 pounds of fresh or frozen Calzone Products due to undeclared egg, a known allergen. USDA: http://ht.ly/oKxuW

Direct link: http://www.fsis.usda.gov/wps/portal/fsis/topics/recalls-and-public-health-alerts/recall-case-archive/archive/2013/recall-050-2013-release

Additional information:
The United States Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • 10-ounce packages, in 7.5 pound cases, of “ENZO’S Italian Combo Calzone” bearing the establishment number “EST. 9014” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. Identifying case codes are: 7163, 7173, 7183, 7223, 7253, 8143, 8303 and 9043.
  • 10-ounce packages, in 7.5 pound cases, of “ENZO’S Chicken Fajita Calzone” bearing the establishment number “P-9014” inside the USDA mark of inspection on the label. Identifying case codes are: 7163, 7173, 7183, 7223, 8133 and 9043.

According to the USDA, the Calzone Products were produced between July 16 and September 4, 2013 and shipped to distributors, retail locations and possibly, restaurants in the San Francisco Bay area.

About Egg Allergies:
For some people, foods made from egg (or egg ingredients) may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (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 egg 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.

Orion Potato Chip Recall [Canada]

Canada CFIA RecallCanada/Ottawa: Fukuda Trading Co. recalls some Orion brand Potato Chips due to undeclared milk, a known allergen. CFIA: http://ht.ly/oIPhd

Direct link: http://healthycanadians.gc.ca/recall-alert-rappel-avis/inspection/2013/35337r-eng.php

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

  • Orion Italian Potato Chips – Chili Chili, 115 gram bag; all codes where milk is not declared in the list of ingredients; UPC: 8 801117 720209

About Milk 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).

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to milk or milk 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.
