Each package has a use by date of either "01/03/2010" or "01/10/2010," a case code of "30900-17856," and an establishment number of "EST. 15878" inside the USDA inspection mark.

The roast beef was produced on October 5 and October 12 and distributed to delicatessens and Department of Defense Commissaries in California, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington.

Baby Stroller cuts off babies fingers...

Maclaren



High-end stroller maker Maclaren, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling about 1 million umbrella strollers sold in the United States since 1999.

The move comes after 15 reports of children placing their finger in the stroller’s hinge mechanism, resulting in 12 reports of fingertip amputations in the United States. The agency said consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The affected models included Volo, Triumph, Quest Sport, Quest Mod, Techno XT, TechnoXLR, Twin Triumph, Twin Techno and Easy Traveller.

Maclaren, which dubs itself as "a premier British parenting lifestyle company that produces the world's most safe, durable, innovative and stylish baby buggies and strollers," is planning to provide a free kit to cover the stroller's hinge mechanism.

In a press release, the company said: "Safety is our first priority and through this voluntary effort we urge consumers to contact us immediately to obtain the kit which consists of hinge covers designed specifically to fit all Maclaren strollers."

Agreed.....

When you have a problem you ask, why? And the work is done for you, if one looks at all the lists of all the data collected from the local level to the Federal level.

I use to read many of them. Then looked at the big picture and decided that it was a process..

I call the "Dumbing Dowm of America" .... Think about it? Or am I way off base?

MrLiberty, you have been postings of it happening in your area... Read all your posts in the thread on the local economy.. Others have been reporting as you the same stuff that makes up the big picture...

Large Number of Cribs to Be Recalled Tuesday
Monday, November 23, 2009


Print ShareThisThe Consumer Product Safety Commission is set to announce one of the largest crib recalls in United States history, involving cribs with dropdown sides, according to several news organizations.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the agency will announce a massive crib recall on Tuesday according to a spokeswoman, though she offered few details.

CBS News reported that there is a major push to ban cribs with dropdown sides, which may be unsafe or even deadly for children.

It is not yet known which models will be subject to recall.

More than 4.6 million cribs have been recalled by the CPSC since 2007.

recall of H1N1 Flu Vaccine in CanadaNo. 12 A major pharmaceutical company has recalled several doses of the H1N1 Flu Vaccine.

GlaxoSmithKline has advised medical staff in Canada to not use on batch of the H1N1 Flu Vaccine for fear it may trigger life threatening allergies.

A company official says the affected batch contains 172,000 doses of the vaccine.

The recall came after six reports of serious allergic reactions among recipients, but there have not been similar reports from other countries.

GlaxoSmithKline is only investigating the one batch of its swine flu vaccine in Canada. Company officials say no other doses of its swine flu vaccine around the world are affected.

GlaxoSmithKline is the world's second largest drug maker by revenue.

A recall of Tylenol products that began last month with the popular Tylenol arthritis caplet expanded this morning to include more than two dozen other over-the-counter products manufactured by McNeil Healthcare LLC, the arm of Johnson & Johnson that manufactures Tylenol products.
Share
Two more products are cited in odor complaints, according to the FDA.

The broadened directive adds 54 million bottles of product to the recall, boosting the total number of bottles recalled by McNeil to 60 million, according to the company.

McNeill initiated a voluntary recall of Tylenol Arthritis Relief Caplets at the end of December after consumer complaints of stomach problems. The problems were linked to the presence of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA), which results from the breakdown of a chemical in wood pallets used to transport and store packaging materials for the drugs.

Now it appears that the problem extended into other Tylenol products as well, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Tylenol Extra Strength, Rolaids and a number of children's medicines are now included in the recall, which affects 27 products in various packaging quantities.

McNeil released a statement today in which it said the voluntary recall is being conducted in consultation with the FDA and affects a number of products for which there have been no complaints.

The company added that the musty-smelling chemical thought to be the cause of the sickness posed no fatal risk to those who ingest it.

"The health effects of this chemical have not been well studied, but no serious events have been documented in the medical literature," the statement read.

"In addition to the product recall, McNeil Consumer Healthcare is continuing its investigation into the issue and is taking further actions that include ceasing shipment of products produced using materials shipped on these wood pallets and requiring suppliers who ship materials to our plants to discontinue the use of these pallets."

Dang to many plants and places that need more inspections/quality control..

Some 390 tons of U.S. ground beef recalled..........
..2 hrs 56 mins ago

WASHINGTON (Reuters) Some 390 tons of ground beef produced by a California meat packer, some of it nearly two years ago, is being recalled for fear of potentially deadly E. coli bacterium tainting, U.S. officials said on Monday.

The beef was produced by Huntington Meat Packing Inc of Montebello, California, and shipped mainly to California outlets, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's food safety arm said.

An initial problem, in ground beef shipped by the plant from January 5 to January 15, was discovered during a regular safety check, the Food Safety and Inspection Service said.

It said it had received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of the recalled products.

During a follow-up review of the company's records, government inspectors determined additional products produced and shipped in 2008 to be of concern because they may have been contaminated with E.coli, the service said in a notice on its web site.

This batch was produced from February 19, 2008, to May 15, 2008. It also had been shipped to distribution centers, restaurants and hotels within California, the notice said.

"While these products are normally used fresh, the establishment is taking this action out of concern that some product may still be frozen and in commerce," it said.

E. coli is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause kidney failure in the most serious cases.

The service said it routinely conducts checks to verify that recalling firms notify customers, including restaurants, of the recall and that steps are taken to make sure the product is no longer available to consumers.
