(113g) vacuum packs of Smoked Nova Salmon with lot code of L.05122014 because it may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.

The contamination was noted after routine testing by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services revealed the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in one 4 ounce package of "Imported (Product of Denmark) Acme 4oz. Smoked Nova Salmon" with product lot code L.05122014.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Flying Cow Creamery Recalls Whole Milk Yogurt


Flying Cow Creamery Voluntarily Recalls Yogurt

Contact:
Consumer:
360-273-1045
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE November 21, 2014- Flying Cow Creamery is voluntarily recalling one lot of whole milk yogurt due to a faulty time and temperature recording during pasteurization. Pasteurization heats milk to eliminate all illness-causing bacteria such as Listeria monocytogenes and Salmonella.
The process of making yogurt at Flying Cow Creamery takes the milk beyond the required pasteurization time. However, during the production of Batch 70, the time and temperature recorder malfunctioned leaving no record that the yogurt was properly pasteurized. As a precaution, Flying Cow Creamery is voluntarily recalling one batch of yogurt. They are not aware of any illness or complaints associated with the recalled yogurt.
Batch number 70 with a Best Before date of 12/3 yogurt has been recalled. The batch number and best before date can be found on the top of the container. The product is sold in 32 oz returnable glass jars with white caps. Recalled yogurt was sold at retail locations in Rochester, Olympia, Seattle, Chehalis, Federal Way and Tacoma.
Washington State Department of Agriculture discovered inadequate pasteurization records during a routine inspection. A review of the pasteurization recorder charts did not prove adequate time for pasteurization. The recorder chart may not have been operating correctly.
If you have this product, you are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or replacement. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 360-273-1045 between the hours of 8 AM and 5 PM PST or via email, info@flyingcowcreamery.com.

NHTSA Urges Vehicle Owners with Defective Airbags Urged to Take Immediate Action

Vehicle owners can call our Safety Hotline: 1-888-327-4236

NHTSA is requesting owners of vehicles listed below to get the driver side airbag repaired as the defective units could be threat to the safety of drivers. Most vehicles are old and owners may be different from the original owners thus not receiving information about the recall.
You can also check directly at NHTSA for manufacturer support page where you can verify your vehicle by entering the VIN number.


WASHINGTON, D.C. - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration urges owners of certain Toyota, Honda, Mazda, BMW, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Subaru, Chrysler, Ford and General Motors vehicles to act immediately on recall notices to replace defective Takata airbags. Over seven million vehicles are involved in these recalls, which have occurred as far back as 18 months ago and as recently as Monday. The message comes with urgency, especially for owners of vehicles affected by regional recalls in the following areas: Florida, Puerto Rico, limited areas near the Gulf of Mexico in Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, and Louisiana, as well as Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, Virgin Islands and Hawaii.
"Responding to these recalls, whether old or new, is essential to personal safety and it will help aid our ongoing investigation into Takata airbags and what appears to be a problem related to extended exposure to consistently high humidity and temperatures. However, we’re leaving no stone unturned in our aggressive pursuit to track down the full geographic scope of this issue," said NHTSA Deputy Administrator David Friedman.
Consumers that are uncertain whether their vehicle is impacted by the Takata recalls, or any other recall, can contact their manufacturer’s website to search, by their vehicle identification number (VIN) to confirm whether their individual vehicle has an open recall that needs to be addressed. Owners that have been contacted by their manufacturer should contact their dealer’s service department and make arrangements for the repair. In addition, consumers can sign up for NHTSA recall alerts, which go out before recall letters are mailed by the manufacturers to the affected owners.

 

7.8 Million Affected U.S. Vehicles, by Manufacturer, Impacted by CY 2013 and 2014 Recalls Involving Takata Airbags

Note: The list below corrects the list that accompanied our October 20 advisory, which incorrectly included certain vehicles. The numbers cited for potentially affected vehicles below are subject to change and adjustment because there may be cases of vehicles being counted more than once. Owners should check their VIN periodically as manufacturers continue to add VINs to the database. Once owner recall notices are available, owners can retrieve a copy from SaferCar.gov, or will receive one by U.S. mail and are advised to carefully follow the enclosed instructions.

Consumers and media with questions regarding the recall should call Jeremy Turnquist, Vice President of Operations for Ranchers Legacy Meat Co. at (651) 366-6575


WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2014 – Ranchers Legacy Meat Co., of Vadnais Heights, Minn., is recalling 1,200 pounds of ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
Products subject to the recall are packaged in plastic cryovac sealed packets, and contain various weights of ground beef.  All products produced on Nov. 19, 2014 are subject to recall.
All of the following have a Package Code (use by) 12/10/2014 and bear the establishment number “Est. 40264” inside the USDA mark of inspection. Individual products include:
  • Ranchers Legacy Ground Beef Patties 77/23
  • Ranchers Legacy Ground Chuck Patties 80/20
  • Ranchers Legacy USDA Choice Ground Beef 80/20
  • Ranchers Legacy USDA Choice WD Beef Patties 80/20
  • Ranchers Legacy RD Beef Patties 80/20

  • Ranchers Legacy USDA Choice NAT Beef Patties 80/20
  • Ranchers Legacy Ground Chuck Blend
  • Ranchers Legacy Chuck Blend Bulk Pack NAT Patties

The product was discovered by FSIS inspection personnel during a routine inspection. Products testing positive on November 21, 2014 were held at the establishment.  The products being recalled were produced on the same day and equipment as the positive product.  Products were shipped to distributors for sales nationwide.
E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.
FSIS and the company are concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers' freezers. FSIS and the company have received no reports of illnesses associated with consumption of these products.
FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160 ° F. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature, http://1.usa.gov/1cDxcDQ.

 
PREPARING PRODUCT FOR SAFE CONSUMPTION
USDA Meat and Poultry Hotline
1-888-MPHOTLINE or visit
www.fsis.usda.gov
Wash hands with warm, soapy water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling raw meat and poultry. Wash cutting boards, dishes and utensils with hot, soapy water. Immediately clean spills.
Keep raw meat, fish and poultry away from other food that will not be cooked. Use separate cutting boards for raw meat, poultry and egg products and cooked foods.
Color is NOT a reliable indicator that meat has been cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria.
The only way to be sure the meat or poultry is cooked to a high enough temperature to kill harmful bacteria is to use a thermometer to measure the internal temperature.
- Fish: 145°F
- Beef, pork, lamb chops/steaks/roasts: 145°F with a three minute rest time
- ground meat: 160°F
- poultry: 165°F
- hot dogs: 160°F or steaming hot
Refrigerate raw meat and poultry within two hours after purchase or one hour if temperatures exceed 90º F. Refrigerate cooked meat and poultry within two hours after cooking.

Forever Beautiful Bee Pollen Recalled By REFA Enterprises, LLC, Due to Undeclared Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein

REFA Enterprises, LLC Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall of Forever Beautiful Bee Pollen Due to Undeclared Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein

Contact:
Consumer:
(757) 420-1122
support@fbbpshop.com
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 19, 2014 – REFA Enterprises, LLC is voluntarily recalling one lot of each: Forever Beautiful Bee Pollen (UPC # 6333090804632), Forever Beautiful Infinity UPC # 633090804649), to the consumer level. The products have been found to contain undeclared Sibutramine or a combination of both Sibutramine and Phenolphthalein through FDA laboratory analyses. Sibutramine is an appetite suppressant that was withdrawn from the U.S. market in October 2010 (due to increased risk of seizures, heart attacks, arrhythmia and strokes). Phenolphthalein is an ingredient previously used in over-the-counter laxatives, but because of concerns of carcinogenicity, it is not currently approved for marketing in the United States. These undeclared ingredients make these products unapproved new drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established. Products containing sibutramine pose a threat to consumers because Sibutramine can increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a risk for those with a history of coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, arrhymias or stroke. These products may also interact in life threatening ways with other medications a consumer may be taking. Health risks associated with phenolphthalein could include potentially serious gastrointestinal disturbances, irregular heartbeat, and cancer with long-term use. To date, the company has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
All affected products are marketed as dietary supplements for weight loss and were packaged and distributed as follows:
Forever Beautiful Bee Pollen is packaged in bottles of 60 capsules, Forever Beautiful Bee pollen was distributed via internet to consumers nationwide from July 7, 2014 – November 3, 2014.
Forever Beautiful Infinity is packaged in bottles of 60 capsules. Forever Beautiful Infinity was distributed via internet to consumers nationwide from July 7, 2014 – November 3, 2014.

LAND ROVER      RANGE ROVER SPORT2014 
SUMMARY:
Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC (Land Rover) is recalling certain model year 2014 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport and 2013-2014 LR4 vehicles manufactured September 16, 2013, to June 30, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) may fail to learn the locations of the individual sensors while the vehicle is being driven. As a result, the low tire pressure warning light will illuminate, despite the the tire pressures being within specification. Should one of the tires subsequently lose air pressure, the driver would not be notified of the change in air pressure.
CONSEQUENCE:
If the TPMS light illuminates because the sensors cannot be located, it could mask an actual low tire pressure condition, possibly resulting in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:
Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will update the Body Control Module (BCM) software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 1, 2014. Owners may contact Land Rover customer service at 1-800-637-6837, Option 9. Land Rover's number for this recall is P050.
