Let’s see…today’s recall list involves a fish I’d never heard of, a shady laboratory that fudges their data, swings that could hurt your child, and more. Needless to say, it’s a list worth checking out to make sure none of these products are in your home!
1. In the United States: S&S Food Import corp. recalls uneviscerated Dried Roach (Vobla)
Reason for recall: possible botulism. Okay, let’s clear a few things up first. I thought this recall was about cockroaches. Yukc. Thank goodness, it’s not. The recall involves a certain type of fish known as a roach. I’ve never heard of it and I’ve obviously never eaten it or I would have been a bit more aware. In essence, this recall was issued because the innards weren’t removed properly and thus, the possibility of botulism. That’s a YUCK regardless how you spell it. Click here to read more.
2. In Canada: Health Canada requests quarantine of products from IPCA Laboratories following falsification and manipulation of data issues
Oh my…this is a first. I won’t go into full details. That’s for you to click on the link to read more but for me, this post by Health Canada is scary. In essence, IPCA Laboratories fudged their data which Health Canada estimates may have impacted about 21 active pharmaceutical ingredients. Shady shady, shady. Click here to read more.
3. In the United States: Gel Spice Company, Inc. recalls Fresh Finds Brand Ground Black Pepper
Reason for recall: Salmonella. Enough said. Click here for details.
4. In the U.S. and Canada:IKEA recalls GUNGGUNG Children’s Swing
Reason for Recall: fall hazard. As it turns out, a part of the swing can break. Translation: child falls from the swing = injury. Not good. Yes, injuries have been reported. Click here for details.
5. In the United States: updated recall – Playtex Nurser Deluxe Double Electric Breast Pump
Reason for updated Recall: the original recall issued back in March 2014 involved select AC/DC power adapters because the casing on some of them could come loose and separate, leading to possible electric shock. This recall adds another adapter production lot to the recall. Better safe than sorry so thank you Playtex for making this call! Click here for details.
