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.

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.
