About Sulphite/Sulfite Allergies:
For some people, sulphites are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. In addition, those with Asthma or other respiratory problems may require immediate attention for serious and life-threatening breathing difficulties.

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.

Monster Science Growing Spider Toy Recall [US]

US CPSC RecallUS/Washington: Be Amazing! Toys recalls some Monster Science Growing Spider Toys due to serious ingestion hazard. CPSC: http://ht.ly/oMSiC

Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Be-Amazing-Toys-Recalls-Monster-Science-Growing-Spiders/

Additional information:Monster Science Spider Toy
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some Monster Science Growing Spider Toy Sets, model number 7280. The Spider Toy Sets contain marble-sized polymer ball “spider eggs” that can absorb from 300 to 800 times their weight in water and can grow up to eight times their original size. The Spider Toy Sets consist of one polymer spider and three “spider eggs”.

The Be Amazing! Toys star logo and the words “Monster Science Growing Spider”, “Ages 8+”, “Just drop in water”, “Grow Giant Spider Eggs” and “Eggs Grow Up to 8X Original Size” are printed on the front of the packaging. The model number is on the bottom of the back of the packaging. The front and back of the packaging have warnings not to use the toy without adult supervision.

According to the CSPC, the soft and colorful product can be mistaken by a child for candy. When the marble-sized toy is ingested, it can expand inside a child’s body and cause intestinal obstructions, resulting in severe discomfort, vomiting, dehydration and could be life threatening. Due to their composition, the Spider Toy Sets do not show up on a radiograph (X-Ray) and require surgery to be removed from the child’s body.

CPSC is aware of one incident with a similar water absorbing polymer ball product in which an 8-month-old girl ingested the ball and had to undergo surgery to have it removed. At press time, there were no known incidents concerning this particular toy.

About Listeriosis (Listeria poisoning):
Listeriosis is a serious infection that can develop after eating food contaminated by bacteria, typically a strain called Listeria monocytogenes. In most people, Listeriosis is mild and causes flu-like symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or diarrhoea.

In more rare cases and especially in those with compromised immune systems (including pregnant women), the infection can spread to other parts of the body and cause serious complications, such as meningitis (infection of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord) or foetal death.

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 more about Listeriosis from the National Health Service at http://ht.ly/hnBQu
