Did you read the reason for the recall? A supplier had an upset and some of the cans have a faulty end seam. It's really easy to see how that would only effect some of the product but not all.

Ford is recalling and fixing a number of police vehicles due to carbon monoxide leaks in the cabin which have led to several crashes. But it appears that aftermarket modifications are likely the culprit since it hasn't been happening in regular consumer models.

The company says it is also looking into the matter and has discovered holes and in some vehicles, where police equipment was installed after the vehicle left the factory.

IKEA
Jozef Dudek had just been put down for a nap at home in Buena Park, Calif., when his father went to check on him — and made a horrifying discovery: The 2-year-old was crushed under an Ikea dresser and could not be revived.

The toddler’s death on May 24, the details of which were released for the first time this week, was at least the seventh death of a child attributed to Ikea dressers and chests — and the fourth from the Swedish furniture giant’s Malm line. And its occurrence raises questions about the effectiveness of Ikea’s massive recall, which the company issued for some 30 million dressers, including the Malm line, in June 2016.
...
On Friday, Ikea offered condolences to the family. “The initial investigation indicates that the chest involved in this incident had not been properly attached to the wall,” a company statement said.

The company defended the 2016 recall and its efforts to publicize it, saying that it worked with U.S. media outlets for coverage, launched a national advertising campaign and posted information about the recall prominently online and in its stores.
...
Last year, the law firm Feldman Shepherd Wohlgelernter Tanner Weinstock Dodig won a $50 million settlement for three other families whose children had died from toppled Malm furniture

At least four children have died and 41 have been injured from tipping Malm dressers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission; other Ikea chests have caused three deaths and 19 reported injuries.
...
Ikea offered a full refund to customers who purchased certain lines of dressers and chests after 2002, including the Malm line, and partial refunds for those made before. Customers with the dressers could arrange to have them picked up free or could drop them off at any Ikea store. The company also offered free wall-anchoring kits for those who chose to keep their dressers, as well as assistance anchoring the units.

The dressers have since been redesigned to be brought up to compliance, the company said.

In my day nothing needed to be fastened to a wall. For a small kid the stuff was just too damn heavy. It was all made better back then. Real furniture. For a bigger kid our asses got tanned if we climbed on furniture.

That said I have two taller than me book shelves. The first one was never fastened to a wall and it has always worried me a little. My 2d one because of where it is I did fasten to the wall and its solid. Of course they are cheap and lightly made.

You realize you can get real furniture now, right? It's still being made, but you aren't going to find it at Walmart or Ikea. We got a handmade quartersawn oak bedroom set that I love, and it's incredibly solid.

Ah yes, back when cars were all solid Detroit steel and we didn't need seatbelts.

We have two very solid dressers. They weigh 150 lbs empty, at least. They are solid and "real furniture" I was always wary of them tipping though. The drawers go out pretty far and if you open the top 3 and they're full they will tip. When we had the kiddo, I expressed my concerns and the wife said we would move them. We didn't but I placed the bed in such a way that it would block a falling dresser. Well, of course the kiddo opened all the drawers and it fell. I was at work and the wife called horrified. It fell and was tenuously held up in a corner of the bed frame (thick steel). Would have crushed the kiddo flat.

So naturally we moved the dressers into the closet and anchored them. The anchors will hold 500 lbs+. I went on an anchor spree and anchored everything else in the house that was even remotely a tipping hazard.


Still get the shivers thinking about that dresser falling.

I wonder if the tipping over issue is also related to shoddier home building. The contractor that built our addition did a great job. The floor supports are closer than required. The result is that the floor is very solid. The older part of the house? Not so much. The floors have a lot of give. I'd think that (or floors that are no longer level due to settling) could possibly be a factor.

But my immediate thought was "didn't they use the anchors?" I only have a couple of pieces of furniture from IKEA, but each one came with anchors. And the instructions stressed their use. I didn't anchor one shelf because it's small and wedged into a corner (and in the newer addition). The other furniture is solidly anchored.

Before the outright recall,IKEA was offering anchors to people who bought these, even offering in-home installation. So I don't think they came with them.

I didn't read the link Isg posted, but from the quoted section, it sounded like this happened well after the recall. Of course, it does not mention when the parents purchased and installed the furniture. Though it would seem that it either happened post-recall, and therefore came with anchors that weren't used; or before, and they didn't follow up on the recall offers. Regardless, it's a tragedy that could have been avoided.

From their 2016 press release:
Recall Date: June 28, 2016
Revised Date: November 4, 2016
Recall Number: 16-204

Name of Product: Children’s and adult chests and dressers

Hazard: The recalled chests and dressers are unstable if they are not properly anchored to the wall, posing a serious tip-over and entrapment hazard that can result in death or injuries to children.

Remedy: Refund or Repair

Consumers should immediately stop using any recalled chest and dresser that is not properly anchored to the wall and place it into an area that children cannot access. Contact IKEA for a choice between two options: refund or a free wall-anchoring repair kit.

Consumers are entitled to a full refund for chests and dressers manufactured between January 2002 and June 2016. Consumers with chests and dressers manufactured prior to January 2002 will be eligible for a partial store credit.

Consumers can order a free wall-anchoring repair kit. Consumers can install the kit themselves or IKEA will provide a one-time, free in-home installation service, upon request. Consumers can reorder the kits throughout the life of their chest and dresser.

...


On July 22, 2015, CPSC and IKEA announced a repair program for the chests and dressers that included a free wall-anchoring repair kit for the MALM chests and dressers and other IKEA chests and dressers. [After becoming aware of two deaths]

Lesson being, recalls can save lives if people don't ignore them.

Nursing textbook.

Pearson, the world’s biggest education company, has come under fire this week for a page in one of its nursing textbooks — which features racist stereotypes about minorities.

“Hispanics may believe that pain is a form of punishment and suffering must be endured if they are to enter heaven,” a section reads.

“Blacks often report higher pain intensity than other cultures,” another says.

...
“Jews may be vocal and demanding of assistance,” another says.

Little info on this egg recall I posted. My state of Tennessee is not listed on any of the states these eggs were shipped to and sold in for some reason but the eggs I bought here at a SaveAlot store are the exact name type and number listed on the carton as the bad eggs. So not sure whats up with that but a heads up anyways. i threw mine away minus the 4 I had used in meatloaf.

Romaine
Federal authorities are urging people who bought chopped romaine lettuce in the United States to throw it away because it could get them sick.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday the nationwide E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce from Yuma, Ariz., has expanded to 53 cases in 16 states.

The CDC warning is clear: All store-bought chopped romaine lettuce, including salads and mixes with romaine, should not be eaten — and thrown away. If someone has eaten the lettuce and not gotten sick, it should still be thrown away. If you don't know if the lettuce you're eating is romaine or not, toss it. Eating at a restaurant? Ask the waiter if the romaine lettuce is coming from the Yuma area. If the source can't be confirmed, do not order or eat it.

Restaurants and retailers should not sell chopped romaine from the Yuma area, the CDC said. They should also ask suppliers where the lettuce is from.

The CDC added 18 cases since the last update on Friday. The outbreak, which started March 13, has resulted in 31 hospitalizations, which includes five people developing a type of kidney failure. There have been no deaths.
...
Pennsylvania is the hardest-hit state with 12 cases, followed by Idaho with 10. New Jersey, Montana and Arizona are among the other states affected. About 70% of those sick are women or girls.

The E. coli spreading through the states is "toxin-producing," the CDC states — specifically a toxin known as Shiga. People get sick within two to eight days of swallowing the germ, which causes diarrhea, stomach cramps and vomiting. Although most recover in one week, it could lead to kidney failure.

Not yet recalled, but... teething medication
Federal health officials warned parents Wednesday about the dangers of teething remedies that contain a popular numbing ingredient and asked manufacturers to stop selling their products intended for babies and toddlers.

The Food and Drug Administration said that various gels and creams containing the drug benzocaine can cause rare but deadly side effects in children, especially those 2 years and younger.

The agency has been warning about the products for a decade but said reports of illnesses and deaths have continued. Now, it wants teething products off the market, noting there is little evidence they actually work.
...
The FDA said it will take legal action against companies that don't voluntarily remove their products for young children. Manufacturers are expected to comply as soon as possible.

Benzocaine is also used in popular over-the-counter products for toothaches and cold sores in adults, including Orajel and Anbesol and generic drugstore brands. Products for adults can remain on the market but the FDA wants companies to add new warnings.

Benzocaine can cause a rare blood condition linked to potentially deadly breathing problems. The pain-relieving ingredient can interfere with an oxygen-carrying protein in the blood. Symptoms include shortness of breath, headache and rapid heart rate.

Teething products with benzocaine include Baby Orajel. The packaging states: "Instant relief for teething pain."
...
The FDA issued warnings about the teething products in 2006, 2011 and 2014, but it did not call for their removal from the market. Officials reviewed 119 cases of the blood disorder linked to benzocaine between 2009 and 2017, including four deaths, according to the FDA.

#Breadgate [ :roll: -Isg]
Yet another restaurant chain in Texas is having issues with their bread products, causing them to be pulled from the menu.

This time, it's Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers.

According to a spokesperson, Cane's isn't serving their Texas Toast in the state due to the product not meeting their quality standards for taste:
...
Cane's joins Whataburger, who earlier Wednesday said they were forced to pull their Texas Toast and white buns from some locations due to the same concerns, and In-N-Out Burger, which closed all of their Texas locations for two days this week to sort their bun problems out.

Valsartan-containing drugs
The US Food and Drug Administration expanded the list of drugs being recalled that contain valsartan. The drug is used as a component in a set of drugs used to treat heart failure and blood pressure.

The FDA initially announced a valsartan recall in July after lab tests discovered that some drugs could have been tainted with a substance linked to higher risk of cancer. The drug had previously been recalled in 22 other countries. The expanded recall includes some drugs that contain valsartan and hydrochlorothisazide. Not all of the drugs containing valsartan were impacted.

N-nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA, the impurity the lab tests found, is considered a possible carcinogen by the US Environmental Protection Agency. It is an organic chemical that has been used to make liquid rocket fuel, and can be unintentionally introduced through certain chemical reactions. It's a byproduct from the manufacturing of some pesticides and fish processing.

Raw pet food
G & C Raw, LLC, a pet food manufacturer located in Versailles, Ohio, is recalling 2 lots of its dog and cat foods because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. The items being recalled are 30 containers of Pat's Cat Turkey and 40 containers of Ground Lamb Dog Food.

The recall was initiated following a routine sampling program by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, which revealed that the finished products contained the bacteria. G & C Raw has since ceased the production and distribution of the product as the company continues its investigation as to what caused the problem.

No whey
Days after the snack food company Mondelez International recalled some of its Ritz cracker products after a whey powder supplier identified a potential salmonella risk, the company announced that two people had fallen ill after eating the crackers in question.
...
Mondelez was one of several food companies to issue recalls based on potential contamination from whey powder provided by Associated Milk Producers Inc., a dairy company based in New Ulm, Minn.

On Monday, Flowers Foods recalled some of its swiss rolls and bread products, and on Tuesday, Pepperidge Farm announced a recall of several of its Goldfish cracker varieties in the United States. The companies were not aware of any related illnesses as of Tuesday, according to the United States Food and Drug Administration.

The F.D.A. said that Hungry Man products, made by Pinnacle Foods, may also contain the whey powder, and that the United States Department of Agriculture was working with the company on a public health alert.

Am I alone in remembering like 15+ years ago...maybe more like 20.....that the US Gov drastically lowered its food oversight inspectors? I feel this is the result. It finally hit a overflow. We've had some problem but lately theres 1 a month. I already cant buy items I usually buy to eat in store for fear of sickness and death. Whats worse my local cheap food store doesn't seem to know or care a thing for recalls. I have found 2 items under recall still stocked on shelves for sale...the correct lot number and all. And STILL there after I called and warned them.

Romaine
ALL OF IT!!1!
Romaine lettuce is unsafe to eat in any form, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Tuesday in a food safety alert in response to a new outbreak of illnesses caused by a particularly dangerous type of E. coli bacteria.

CDC told consumers to throw away any romaine lettuce they may already have purchased. Restaurants should not serve it, stores should not sell it, and people should not buy it, no matter where or when the lettuce was grown. It doesn’t matter if it is chopped, whole head or part of a mix.

The unusually broad warning, issued just two days before Americans sit down for their Thanksgiving dinners, reflects the uncertainties about the origin and extent of the bacterial contamination. The CDC is not claiming that all romaine contains the dangerous bacteria — something the millions of people who have eaten the popular lettuce recently should bear in mind — but investigators don’t know precisely where, when or how the contamination happened.

Thus all romaine is suspect.

The CDC reported that 32 people in 11 states have become sick from eating contaminated romaine. Of those, 13 have been hospitalized, with one patient suffering from a form of kidney failure. The Public Health Agency of Canada has reported that 18 people have been infected with the same strain of E. coli. in Ontario and Quebec.

No deaths have been reported.

Honda Minivans, for all you soccer dads out there.
Honda is recalling 122,000 minivans worldwide because the sliding doors can open while the vans are moving.

The recall covers Odyssey vans from 2018 and 2019.

Honda says some parts in the power door rear latches can stick and stop the doors from fastening securely. The company says it has no reports of injuries.

Dealers will replace the latches, but currently they have only a limited parts supply. Honda expects to have more parts by late December. If dealers can’t get repair kits, owners will have the option of temporarily disabling the power sliding door until parts are available. Manual door operation would still be possible.

Pretty sure this got me and the wife this week. Steak Salad at a restaurant Sunday equaled full liquid purging Sunday night into Monday. Good news is I'm finally felling better, I lost 6 pounds and I should have a voracious appetite tomorrow.

Threw away the half-bag I had in the fridge this morning, but no ill effect from eating the other half over the past few days.

Ground beef
JBS Tolleson, Inc. is recalling more than 5.1 million pounds of raw beef products that may be tainted with salmonella, the United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Tuesday.

The recalled beef was produced and packaged between July 26 and September 7 according to FSIS. The products have been distributed nationwide and include the brands Kroger, Cedar River Farms, Grass Run Farms and JBS generic among others.

This is an expansion of a recall that was first issued in October for the same reason.

The total amount of "non-intact raw beef products" that have been recalled now exceeds more than 12 million pounds.

The recalled beef is linked to an outbreak of salmonella that, as of November 15, has caused 246 people to become sick in 25 states, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No deaths have been reported but 56 people have been hospitalized.

That figures because I just bought a pound to make some Hamburger Helper with.

I think its safe because I buy at a local cheap store and it gets all its meat ground from the store at Dunlap TN. It was made Dec and has no USDA inspection label. Im not sure how they sell it with no inspections but there ya go. Ill cook it good.

Dog food
An additional recall was announced on Monday by the Food and Drug Administration for certain brands of dry dog food.

The recall states that the impacted brands contain too much Vitamin D.

While the vitamin is essential for dogs, too much Vitamin D can cause serious health problems or possibly even death.

"FDA scientists have evaluated samples of some of these products, and State and private lab test results indicate that the food contained as much as approximately 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D," the FDA said.

The expanded recall comes about a month after dog food brands Natural Life and Nutrisca issued voluntary recalls.

Other brands now placed under the recall include Sunshine Mills, Lidl's Orlando Brand and Kroger. The FDA believes most of the dog food originates from the same manufacturer, though the company has not been named by the FDA.

As the investigation is still ongoing, the FDA recall also states that additional brands could be added to the list of recalled products.

Ford
Ford is recalling more than 874,000 F-Series pickup trucks with engine block heaters in North America because of fire risks.

The recall includes certain F-150 models from 2015 through 2019, in addition to the F-250, 350, 450 and 550 from 2017 through 2019.

Ford said that water and contaminants can enter the heater cable and cause corrosion, which can then cause electrical shorts and possible fires.
...
The second-largest automaker in the U.S. said the risk of fire happens when the block heater cable is plugged into an electrical outlet.

There have been three reports of fire in Canada, but none so far in the U.S. The recall is expected to officially start on Jan. 7.
