Another blood pressure medication recalled over trace amounts of cancer-causing chemical

Another pharmaceutical company is recalling blood pressure medication after detecting trace amounts of a cancer-causing chemical. The Food and Drug Administration announced Aurobindo Pharma USA, Inc. is voluntarily recalling 80 lots of Amlodipine Valsartan Tablets, Valsartan HCTZ Tablets, and Valsartan Tablets.

The impurity involves a chemical called N-nitrosodiethylamine (NDEA), which the FDA describes as a "substance that occurs naturally in certain foods, drinking water, air pollution, and industrial processes, and has been classified as a probable human carcinogen."

To date, the company says it has not received any reports of patients suffering adverse effects related to the recall.

A full list of the recalled products is posted on the FDA's website. Products can be identified by checking the product name, manufacturer details, and batch or lot number on the pill bottles. Expiration dates range from May 2019 to March 2021.

with slightly more details, it's Fiat Chryslers turn to replace the defective Takata stuff, nothing new:
DETROIT — Fiat Chrysler is recalling more than 1.6 million vehicles worldwide to replace Takata front passenger airbag inflators that can be dangerous.

Takata inflators can explode with too much force, hurling shrapnel into drivers and passengers. At least 23 people have died from the problem worldwide and hundreds injured.

The recall covers the 2010 through 2016 Jeep Wrangler SUV, the 2010 Ram 3500 pickup and 4500/5500 Chassis Cab trucks, the 2010 and 2011 Dodge Dakota pickup, the 2010 through 2014 Dodge Challenger muscle car, the 2011 through 2015 Dodge Charger sedan, and the 2010 through 2015 Chrysler 300 sedan.

It's part of the largest series of automotive recalls in U.S. history. About 10 million inflators are being recalled this year. Already Ford, Honda and Toyota have issued recalls in the latest round.

Fiat Chrysler owners will be notified by letter and dealers will replace the inflators with safe ones. The company says it's not aware of any injuries in vehicles involved in this recall, but says it has plenty of replacement parts and is urging people to get the repairs done.

"Recall service is free, we have replacement parts and dealers are ready to help," Mark Chernoby, FCA's head of safety for North America, said in a statement.

The recall includes 1.4 million vehicles in the United States.

Takata used the chemical ammonium nitrate to create a small explosion to inflate the airbags. But the chemical can deteriorate over time due to high humidity and cycles from hot temperatures to cold. The most dangerous inflators are in areas of the South along the Gulf of Mexico that have high humidity.

The Fiat-Chrysler recall is part of a phased-in replacement of Takata inflators being managed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The FDA says there is a national shortage of the widely prescribed medication valsartan, and that other drugs used to treat high blood pressure could also become in short supply due to ongoing recalls.
I must stay calm. Very calm.

Hill’s Pet Nutrition Voluntarily Recalls Select Canned Dog Food for Excessive Vitamin D

Update January 31, 6:30 pm CST:
Hill’s Pet Nutrition is voluntarily recalling select canned dog food products due to potentially elevated levels of vitamin D. While vitamin D is an essential nutrient for dogs, ingestion of elevated levels can lead to potential health issues depending on the level of vitamin D and the length of exposure, and dogs may exhibit symptoms such as vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, increased urination, excessive drooling, and weight loss. Vitamin D, when consumed at very high levels, can lead to serious health issues in dogs including renal dysfunction. Pet parents with dogs who have consumed any of the products listed and are exhibiting any of these signs should contact their veterinarian. In most cases, complete recovery is expected after discontinuation of feeding.

In the United States, the affected canned dog foods were distributed through retail pet stores and veterinary clinics nationwide. No dry foods, cat foods, or treats are affected.

15 Tons Of Washington Beef Recalled: USDA

TOPPENISH, WA - The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) on March 2 issued a Class I recall for more than 30,000 pounds of ground beef chubs product produced by Washington Beef, LLC, in Toppenish. The recall was issued after USDA investigators learned the meat may be contaminated with hard plastic and metal material.

The ground beef chubs were reportedly produced Dec. 27, 2018, and given a "Use or Freeze By" date of Jan. 20, 2019. The recalled meat was shipped nationwide and bears establishment number "EST. 235."

The potentially contaminated meat was packaged in one-, three-, and 10-pound units.

A customer complaint dated Feb. 28 alerted the USDA to the issue, though there have not been any confirmed reports of illness or adverse reactions due to consuming the meat, USDA officials said. Anyone who may have concerns about illnesses related to eating these products should call their healthcare provider.

Avocado Recall: Escondido Company Recalls Fruit Due to Possible Health Risk

(KSWB) — Henry Avocado Corporation is voluntarily recalling California-grown whole avocados sold in bulk at retail stores because of potential contamination, the San Diego-based company announced in a news release Saturday.

The company issued the recall as a precaution after positive test results for Listeria Monocytogenes were found on environmental samples taken during a routine government inspection at its California packing facility.

“We are voluntarily recalling our products and taking every action possible to ensure the safety of consumers who eat our avocados,” Phil Henry, President of Henry Avocado said.

The recalled California-grown conventional and organic avocados were packed at the company’s packing facility in California and distributed to several states including Arizona, California, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Wisconsin. All shipments from the facility are subject to recall, however the company did not begin packing there until late January 2019.

Avocados imported from Mexico and distributed by Henry Avocados are not subject to recall and may be continue to be sold and consumed.

E. coli outbreak: Ground beef is responsible, CDC says

Ground beef is the food responsible for a mystery E. coli outbreak involving 109 cases of illness in six states, according to preliminary evidence, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

"Ill people in this outbreak report eating ground beef at home and in restaurants," the CDC said in its outbreak update.

No single supplier, distributor or brand has been identified as the source of the outbreak. Therefore, no recall has been issued, and the CDC is not recommending that consumers avoid ground beef at this time or that restaurants stop serving it.

Illnesses are now being reported in six states: Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia and Indiana.

That's one more state and 13 more illnesses since the previous update reported by the CDC on Tuesday.

After reports of infant deaths, nearly 5 million Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play Sleepers are recalled



All models of Rock ’n Play Sleepers by Fisher-Price are being recalled after reports of infant fatalities occurring while using the product.

More than 30 infant fatalities have been reported since the product was introduced in 2009, “after the infants rolled over while unrestrained, or under other circumstances,” according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall came three days after the American Academy of Pediatrics wrote a news release calling on the commission to recall the products, pointing to their danger. Last week, the safety commission and Fisher-Price asked consumers to stop using the sleeper after an infant reaches three months of age, “or is capable of rolling over.”

Between 2011 and 2018, 32 babies have died, “included babies even younger than the 3-month threshold cited in the initial warning, which is alarming,” the AAP noted in its release.

When are we going to learn that ground beef MUST BE THOROUGHLY COOKED! :doh:

I'm not talking about turning patties into hockey pucks - that's not a viable idea but e-coli can be killed off with appropriate cooking.

Want a really juicy medium-well or well-done burger? First, don't go with lean ground beef. And if you're doing them on the stove in a pan, slather the nearly-finished patty with some beef consomme, flip it a couple of times with just a splash of good red wine and maybe some butter and let it rest a minute or two off the heat before serving. :lovestruck:

FDA expands blood pressure drug recall for fifth time this year
https://www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna998911
The Food and Drug Administration announced Wednesday that it will expand its recall of blood pressure medicines to include four lots of losartan after they were found to contain a cancer-causing chemical.

This is the fifth recall in 2019; over the past year, dozens of batches of medications used to treat hypertension have been recalled over contamination fears.

According to the FDA, Legacy Pharmaceutical Packaging has recalled four lots of losartan because the batch contained trace amounts of the nitrosamine, NMBA, which has been linked to increased risk for bladder cancers. In January, several generic valsartan products sold in the United States were found to be contaminated with NDMA, another nitrosamine chemical associated with higher risk of colorectal and uterine cancers.

Almost 57 Tons of Ground Beef Recalled by Georgia Company

156 people sickened across 10 states has prompted a Georgia company to recall nearly 57 tons of ground beef.

K2D Foods, doing business as (DBA) Colorado Premium Foods, a Carrolton, Ga. establishment, is recalling approximately 113,424 pounds of raw ground beef products. The ground beef has been recalled over concerns that it is contaminated with E. coli bacteria. 20 people have been hospitalized with a strain they are calling ‘unusual.’

The raw ground beef items were produced on March 26, March 29, April 2, April 5, April 10, and April 12, 2019. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]
Two 24-lb. vacuum-packed packages in cardboard boxes containing raw “GROUND BEEF PUCK” with “Use Thru” dates of 4/14/19, 4/17/19, 4/20/19, 4/23/19, 4/28/19, and 4/30/19.

These items were shipped to distributors in Port Orange, Fla. and Norcross, Ga. for further distribution to restaurants.
But despite the recall, officials say additional testing is being completed to ensure the accuracy of the source of the bacteria.

Not exactly a recall, but a warning about something that has been obvious for some time.

FDA issues strong warning over risks of common sleeping pills
https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/fda-sl ... ta-sonata/
Millions of Americans suffer from insomnia, and many of them depend on sleep medications to get them through the night. Federal health officials have warned for years about the possible side effects, and now they've issued their strongest warning so far.

The FDA ordered that several popular types of prescription sleeping pills, including Ambien, Lunesta and Sonata, will now come with a prominent "black box" warning slapped on the box. The labels and patient guides will alert consumers to the possibility of some dangerous side effects.

:snippity:

The FDA issued the new requirement after a safety review involving 66 cases in which patients engaged in activities resulting in serious injuries or death, such as sleepwalking or driving while not fully awake. The FDA says some suffered falls, burns, near-drowning, car crashes, or lost limbs after exposure to extreme cold temperatures. Of those cases, 20 people died.
I suffered from insomnia regularly and LOVED ambien about 10 years ago. Several people warned me about sleepwalking they had experienced, including very dangerous behavior. There were occasional news stories about people sleep driving, but they were ridiculed.

Then I started waking up to find home electronic items destroyed. I remembered vivid dreams about fighting off robots and trying to reach the center of the mother ship to save Earth. (Don't ask.) Apparently I was destroying my tv, stereo and other items to save Earth. You're welcome!

So I've lived with recurrent insomnia ever since. I recently asked for a referral to a sleep clinic. I was told that I would be given ambien to help me sleep for the sturdy. I declined and warn them that I might rip the wiring out of any sockets in the room. Yes, I have done that and worse. I HAVE TO SAVE EARTH!!!!

So I didn't get any help with my sleep problem. :(

Ford recalling 270,000 cars in North America that could roll away

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co said Wednesday it is recalling 270,000 Ford Fusion cars in North America that could roll away.

The automaker said the recall covers Fusion cars from the 2013 through 2016 model year that have a shifter cable that may detach from the transmission allowing a driver to remove the ignition key when the vehicle is not in park.

Ford is aware of three reports of property damage and one injury report potentially related to the issue. Ford said owners should always use the parking brake and will be notified when a fix is available.

Perdue Foods recalls ready-to-eat chicken that may be contaminated with pieces of bone: USDA
By JULIA JACOBO Jun 3, 2019, 11:00 AM ET

Perdue Foods announced a voluntary recall of some of their refrigerated and frozen chicken products under the Perdue and Chef Quik brands on May 31, 2019.

Perdue Foods has recalled nearly 32,000 pounds of ready-to-eat chicken products that may have been contaminated with extraneous materials, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture

The chicken products, which are fully cooked, were produced on March 21 and could contain bone material, the USDA announced in a press release on Friday. They were shipped nationwide.

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of the products. The problem was discovered after the USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service and Perdue Chicken received complaints, according to the USDA.

The agency is concerned that some of the products may remain in consumers' freezers, according to the release. The products should not be eaten and should be thrown away or returned to their place of purchase.
