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.

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 seen in human cases.

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.

Murphy’s Home Bakery Apple Tart Alert [Ireland]

Ireland/Dublin: Murphy’s Home Bakery issues an allergy alert for some Apple Tarts due to undeclared gluten, milk, soya, sulphur dioxide (sulphites) and wheat, all known allergens. FSAI: http://ht.ly/jIQxC

Direct link: http://www.fsai.ie/news_centre/allergen_alerts/Murphys_Bakery.html

About Food Allergies:
For some people, gluten, milk, soya, sulphur dioxide (sulphites) and wheat (as well as their by-products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, many of these allergens are hidden and may not look or sound like their original foods. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to these foods within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call 112 or 999 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 your local A&E, health authority or doctor’s surgery.

Ireland/Dublin: Gallagher’s Bakery recalls some Lo-GI Farmhouse Loaf Bread due to undeclared milk. FSAI: http://ht.ly/jG37N

Direct link: http://www.fsai.ie/news_centre/allergen_alerts/gallaghersbakery.html

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.
