Warning....

2 more infants killed in Simplicity bassinets

By NATASHA T. METZLER, Associated Press Writer Natasha T. Metzler, Associated Press Writer – 1 hr 27 mins ago

WASHINGTON – Government safety officials warned parents Thursday about Simplicity bassinets after two more infants were killed when they became trapped.

Two young children died after getting trapped in previously recalled Simplicity close-sleeper/bedside sleeper bassinets, the Consumer Product Safety Commission disclosed.

The company's 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets contain metal bars spaced farther apart than federal standards allow. If the Velcro-fastened fabric covering the metal bars of the bassinets is not properly adjusted, it can be dangerous.

In September 2008, a two-month-old girl in Demorest, Ga., suffocated when she became trapped in a pocket of fabric, which was not properly secured to the bassinet. In January 2009, a six-month-old girl in Fort Worth, Texas, died when the fabric flap was undone and she got trapped between the exposed bars.

The CPSC warned against these Simplicity bassinets in August 2008, when it reported the deaths of two infants who also got trapped.

All of the bassinets manufactured before May 18, 2008 have been recalled. This includes some sold under the Graco brand, some with a Winnie the Pooh motif, as well as other bassinets.

Recalled bassinets can be returned to the retail stores where they were purchased. For details on the affected products, visit: Two Additional Infant Deaths Prompt Re-announcement of Simplicity "Close-Sleeper/Bedside Sleeper" Bassinets

Great Value product recalled

By The Capital-Journal
September 18, 2009 - 6:37pm

A Great Value product is being recalled because it may contain undeclared almonds, the Gilster-Mary Lee Corp., announced Friday in a news release.

A single lot of 21-ounce Great Value Berry Crunch cereal, code 07-21-10-N02, is being recalled after it was discovered that some product contained sliced almonds that were not listed on the packaging.

Not my pick of meat but for others it is, sooooo...

Neb. meatpacker recalls 33,000 lbs. of beef tongue

1 hr 32 mins ago

OMAHA, Neb. – The U.S. Department of Agriculture says a Nebraska meatpacker has recalled 33,000 pounds of beef tongue.

The agency announced in a news release Thursday that inspectors discovered the tonsils had not been completely removed from the tongues processed by J.F. O'Neill Packing Co. of Omaha.

Tonsils are a specified risk material for mad cow disease and are required to be removed from cattle of all ages.

The USDA says the recall, which involves tongues packed from July 1 through Oct. 8, represents a low risk to human health.

The beef was shipped primarily to distribution centers in Nebraska and California.

Each recalled case bears the establishment number "EST. 889A" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

(This version CORRECTS that company is located in Omaha.)

11 states on or near the east coast need to check the recent ground beef bought.

USDA: Meat recall in effect

Staff Report


A New York company has recalled almost 546,000 pounds of ground beef, including meat sold at Price Chopper and BJ's stores, because of links to illnesses from E. coli bacteria in Connecticut, Maine and Massachusetts, officials said this weekend.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said the meat, sold by Fairbank Farms in Ashville, is in packages designated with "EST. 492" inside the USDA inspection mark or on the nutrition label. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service classified the alert as a ``Class 1 Recall'' with a high risk to health because of a ``reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death,'' a media release issued Saturday said.

Price Chopper has stores in Oneonta, Cobleskill, Delhi, Sidney, Norwich and Richfield Springs. BJ's Wholesale Club has a store in Oneonta.

E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure.

It can be destroyed by cooking ground beef to an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and USDA and Price Chopper officials said this cooking method should always be used for consumer protection.

The Price Chopper Supermarkets network is recalling select packages of USDA ground beef with expiration dates of Sept. 16 through Oct. 5, according to a media release from the grocery chain.

Price Chopper said the varieties of ground beef in question are ground round, ground sirloin, 80 percent lean ground beef, 80 percent lean chili meat, 93 percent lean grind, 96 percent lean grind and meatloaf mix. Consumers may return recalled products for a refund, the retailer said.

Price Chopper also initiated its Smart Reply notification program, the release said. The system uses purchase data and consumer phone numbers on file in connection with the company's AdvantEdge loyalty card to alert households that may have purchased products in question.

The USDA said meat in the recall sold at BJ's included meatloaf and meatball mix, 15 percent-fat patties and trays of 7 percent-fat beef.

Also, ground beef packaged under the Fairbank Farms name was distributed to stores in Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia for further processing, the USDA said.

Default Re: 2 Deaths Possibly Linked to Beef Recall

salty could you combine my thread in News Stories into the health/Science?Technology topic..

I have a recall of products thread and it should be in this area I think. It might still remain a source if others add to it. Which was the reason I created it.

A federal health official says two deaths and 26 other illnesses may be linked to possibly contaminated ground beef recalled by a New York company.

Lola Scott Russell, a spokeswoman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says one of the deaths involved a New York adult with several underlying health conditions. The other is a death previously reported by New Hampshire officials.

She says all but three of the suspected E. coli infections are in the northeastern U.S. and 18 are in New England. The CDC is investigating all the cases.

Ashville, N.Y.-based Fairbank Farms recalled almost 546,000 pounds of fresh ground beef that may be tainted with E. coli bacteria. The meat was distributed in September to stores from Virginia to Maine.

The ground beef was sold at Trader Joe's, Price Chopper, Lancaster, Wild Harvest, Shaw's, BJ's, Ford Brothers and Giant stores. Each package carried the number "EST. 492" on the label. They were packaged Sept. 15-16 and may have been labeled with a sell-by date from Sept. 19 through Sept. 28.

Also, ground beef packaged under the Fairbank Farms name was distributed to stores in Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. That meat was likely repackaged for sale and would likely have differing package and sell-by dates.

The USDA was urging customers with concerns to contact the stores where they bought the meat.

Located in the southwestern corner of New York a few miles from the Pennsylvania line, Fairbank Farms has had two other voluntary recalls over the last two years, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service.

It is my public sever project. But I was starting the day at the bottom of the home page and so placed this there too.

On page one of this thread is links to the Govt. sites to check on all types of recalls. Good for Christmas when your looking for gifts for children. But the most are for bad meat... USDA needs to hire inspectors period.


But if time permits I will repost them now. People ought to start a new folder in My Favorites and use these links and e-mail them to others.

Recalls.gov Must look at.......
