Naturemost Laboratories Whey Power Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: Naturemost Laboratories recalls some Vanilla Almond Whey Power due to undeclared almond nut, milk and soy ingredients as well as some Strawberry Banana Whey Power due to undeclared milk and soy ingredients, all known allergens. FDA: http://ht.ly/qlHzo

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm372004.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Nutritional Supplements are subject to this recall:

  • NatureMost Whey Power Vanilla Almond; lot numbers: 9950/3491, 9950/3636, 9950/3766, 9950/4011, 9950/4374, 9950/5025, 9950/5559
  • NatureMost Whey Power Strawberry Banana, lot numbers: 9954/3793, 9954/4043, 9954/4205, 9954/4861

The Whey Power was sold between 2009 and 2013. It was sold in 3 pound, 3000cc white plastic jars.

About Milk, Nut and Soy Allergies:Naturemost Labs Whey Power
For some people, milk (and milk products), nut (and nut products) as well as 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).

Likewise, groundnuts (such as peanuts) and tree nuts (such as almonds and walnuts) are a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to almonds or other nuts within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

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, nut, soy and/or wheat 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.

Baby GAP Assorted Children’s Nightwear Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Brand Republic recalls various Baby GAP Assorted Children’s Nightwear due to failure to meet regulatory labeling requirements for fire danger hazards. ACCC: http://ht.ly/qlqIL

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1052773

Additional information:Baby GAP Children's Nightwear
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Children’s Nightwear products are subject to this recall:

  • White and grey striped one-piece garment for ages 6-12 months, barcode 2885780612
  • Green and grey striped one-piece garment for ages 6-12 months, barcode 2885800612
  • White and pink striped one-piece garment for ages 6-12 months, barcode 2061990612
  • Cream, pink and yellow coloured pyjamas with short sleeved top and pants for ages 18-24 months, barcode 2733761824
  • Primarily orange coloured pyjamas with short sleeved top and pants for ages 18-24 months, barcode 2734771824

According to the ACCC, the recalled Nightwear do not comply with the mandatory standard for children’s sleepwear and limited daywear, AS/NZS 1249:2003 (as amended by regulation) because the “LOW FIRE DANGER” label on the Nightwear was attached to an inner side seam rather than at the neck where it would have been visible from the outside.

In addition, the packaging of some of the Nightwear obscured the “LOW FIRE DANGER” label, contrary to the requirements of the mandatory standard. Parents or carers may not see the “LOW FIRE DANGER” label and may be unaware of the fire danger rating for these garments.

Brannans Butchery Thai Style Chicken Recall [Australia]

Australia ACCC RecallAustralia/Canberra: Inghams Enterprises recalls some Brannans Butchery Thai Style Chicken Breast Kebabs due to undeclared soy and sulphites, both known allergens. ACCC: http://ht.ly/qgJar

Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1052693

Additional information:Brannans Butchery Thai Chicken Kebab
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Chicken Breast products are subject to this recall:

  • Brannans Butchery Thai style Chicken Breast Kebabs sold at Aldi stores in Victoria only. the Thai style Chicken Breast Kebabs (actually Thai Style Turkey Sausage) 450 grams with use by date 20.10.13. Packaged in clear tray with clear top-lidded film.

About Soy and Sulphite Allergies:
For some people, soy (and soy products) and/or sulphite (and sulphite products) are sources of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. 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.

Likewise, 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.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to soy and/or sulphite ingredients within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 0-0-0 (Australia), 1-1-1 (New Zealand) or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical centre. 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.

Also 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.
