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.

Visonic Amber Emergency Response Kit Recall [US]

US CPSC RecallUS/Washington: Visonic recalls some Amber Personal Emergency Response System Kits due to remote pendant battery signal failure hazard. CPSC: http://1.usa.gov/17ZLMze

Direct link: http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2013/Visonic-Recalls-Amber-Personal-Emergency-Response-System-Kits/

Additional information:2509 - VisonicAmberResponseKits
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports the recalled Visonic Amber Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) kit enables a user to push a button on a pendant to signal a request for assistance.

An Amber kit consists of one wireless pendant worn by the user, one Amber brand base station, generally connected to a phone line, a power supply and backup battery. Base stations are white, rectangular and measure about 9-inches wide by 7-inches deep by 2-inches high with emergency, call and check buttons.

The emergency button is red on the Classic model and grey on the SelectX model. Recalled Classic models have catalog number “0-7425” and serial numbers of “0408044281” through “4410052723”. The first four digits of the serial number are manufacture dates from January 2008 through August 2010 in the “WWYY” format. Recalled SelectX models have the catalog number of “0-100729” and serial numbers of “2308600299” through “3013079617”. The first four digits represent manufacture dates June 2008 through July 2013 in WWYY format. The first two digits are week of manufacturer and the second two numbers are the year of manufacture. For example serial number “2308 600299” indicates a manufacturing date of the 23rd week of 2008 or roughly June 2008.

Each unit has an external label on the back of the base station, with the product name and serial number. Only Amber Classic or SelectX base stations that are placed in Common Area Mode by a professionally trained PERS system installer and are used without additional base stations, are included in the recall.

According to the CPSC, a single Amber Base station set to “Common Area Mode” will not detect a low battery or dead battery warning signal from the remote pendant that notifies the end user or system administrator to replace the pendant battery. The firm has received one report of a pendant that failed to operate due to a low battery undetected by the base station in Common Area Mode.

Please note: this product has also been recalled by Health Canada. To see this recall, please search for “Visonic” or “Recalls Direct RIN: 2013-2589” using the Search Box at the top of this page.
