Wildway Grain-Free Granola Recalled

Wildway LLC issued a voluntary recall for multiple grain-free granola products. This recall follows notification by an ingredient supplier that one of the granola ingredients may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria can cause serious (sometimes fatal) illness in children, the elderly, and other people with weakened immune systems. Symptoms may include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Additionally, Listeria infections can cause pregnant women to suffer miscarriages and stillbirths.

Affected products can be identified by lot codes and “Best By” dates. These recalled granola products were distributed nationwide.

Nutty Infusions Recall Expanded

nut butter recalled

Specific lots of Nutty Infusions nut butters are being recalled due to possibility of Listeria contamination. The FDA found evidence that a supplier’s facility may have been contaminated during production of the nut butters. Only two flavors of the Ellyndale Nutty Infusions are affected by this recall: Roasted Almond Butter and Mango Chili Cashew Butter.

Description Lot Number Best By Date
Ellyndale® Nutty Infusions™ Roasted Almond Butter, 10 oz. plastic jars 2124119 2/18
Ellyndale® Nutty Infusions™ Mango Chili Cashew Butter, 10 oz. plastic jars 2125156 3/19

This is an expansion of a previous recall: original nut butter recall.

Frozen Scomber Fish Recalled

“The Duck” brand of “frozen steamed scomber fish” is under recall. During routine sampling, the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets found that the frozen fish had not been properly eviscerated before it was processed. The viscera is the most likely part of the fish to cause concentrated amounts of Clostridium botulinum spores which cause botulism.

Botulism is a serious illness that attacks the nervous system. Botulism symptoms include double or blurred vision, drooping eyelids, difficulty swallowing, slurred speech, dry mouth, and muscle weakness. Symptoms usually show 18 to 36 hours after consuming contaminated food but can begin as soon as six hours after eating.

The recalled frozen fish have distributed to retail stores across the nation. The product in question comes in a styrofoam tray covered in clear plastic. The red label, which includes nutrition information, is marked “Product of Thailand.” UPC is 040459097206.

recalled fish

The FDA encourages consumers to return packages of steamed scomber fish to place of purchase. Questions may be directed to Willis Ocean Inc: 718-386-3053.

Protein Bars Recalled

Bulletproof 360 Inc is recalling specific protein bar and protein bite products due to a potential Listeria contamination. A cashew butter supplier recently discovered Listeria contamination in their facility. This recall is out of an abundance of caution, as the protein bars and bites were processed in a different part of the facility.

From April 7 to June 12, the recalled protein bars were distributed both to retail stores and online. All states may be affected as well as the following countries: Australia, Bahrain, Bermuda, Bolivia, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Canada, Cayman Islands, China, Finland, France, Germany, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Liechtenstein, Macau, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Philippines, Puerto Rico, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Virgin Islands (USA).

Consumers should view the protein product recall to determine whether or not they purchased recalled products. The company is shipping replacement protein bars and bites.

Dog Treats Recalled

Specific lots of Loving Pets dog treats are under recall due to potential Salmonella contamination. Salmonella is dangerous both to pets and the humans that handle the treats. Salmonella symptoms in humans include abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever. Pets suffering from Salmonella infections may also exhibit diarrhea, fever, vomiting, and lethargy.

Check the dog treats recall on the FDA’s website to determine whether or not you have bought an affected product.

Rawhide Dog Chews Recalled

Multiple brands of rawhide dog chews are being recalled by United Pet Group after finding that certain facilities are using a quaternary ammonium compound mixture during the manufacturing process. The United States has not approved the compound for use in producing rawhide chews for dogs. It is, however, approved to clean food processing equipment.

Diarrhea and vomiting has been reported in connection with this dog rawhide recall. Consumers primarily complain of the unpleasant smell exhibited by affected products. Recalled dog rawhides were distributed to retail stores nationwide as well as through online outlets.

American Beefhide, Digest-eeze, and Healthy Hide were all included in the recall. Consumers should view the rawhide dog chews recall to identify recalled products.

What is a Master Gardener? A Master Gardener is someone who has successfully completed Master Gardener classes offered by an extension office. Classes provide research-based information on core subjects ranging from botany to soils to plant pests. Trees, turf, and landscape plant growing principles are also covered. Master Gardener volunteers take the knowledge learned through these classes and put it to use in their communities – sharing knowledge informally with others, teaching, and doing various gardening-related work in public areas.

How do I become a Master Gardener? Complete classes offered at the extension office and complete 40 hours of volunteer service within one year of course completion. Volunteers complete 20 service hours annually in subsequent years to maintain active Master Gardener status.

oldham county master gardeners

Where can I volunteer? There are several ongoing volunteer opportunities at Yew Dell Gardens and Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve, plus one-time opportunities that are announced throughout the year. Participants may help with an existing project or begin their own. A project can be as simple as helping plant or maintain your church’s landscape or providing plant recommendations for a neighborhood association common area. The possibilities are endless.

‘What is Your Tree Worth?’ Landscape trees can add to the value of your property if undamaged, healthy, and planted in an appropriate location. This publication describes how to have your trees evaluated to determine their value in your landscape.

Get Help With Pond Weeds

A common problem for pond owners is control of weedy plants. Correctly identifying the plant is the first step in managing it. Scoop up problem weeds in a bucket and bring to our office for identification and control tips. Keeping pond weeds in water helps preserve them for accurate identification. An open container is best because it keeps the sample fresher. A closed container can be used for same day delivery to our office, but plants will begin decaying if kept enclosed multiple days, especially in a hot environment.

    Recall Alert: EpiPens, Aldi’s Peas, Hunt’s Chili Kits

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) releases food and drug recall notices to help consumers stay informed. Sign up to receive email notifications of Recalls, Market Withdrawals, and Safety Alerts.

    EpiPens Recalled

    Mylan is recalling EpiPens (epinephrine injections) and EpiPen Jrs due to potential defects. A defective EpiPen may require unnecessary force in order to deploy medicine, or in some cases, the device may altogether fail. Epinephrine, the drug injected by an EpiPen, is first aid treatment for an individual undergoing anaphylactic shock, or life-threatening allergic reaction.

    The recall was originally limited to Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Japan but has since expanded to include the United States. Outside of the United Stated, there have been two cases reported of individuals whose EpiPens failed during emergency situations. Both patients, fortunately, were able to use alternate EpiPens in order to obtain treatment.

    Both faulty EpiPens came from the same lot, but additional lots are now being recalled out of precaution. The potentially defective EpiPens were distributed between December 2015 and July 2016. Recalled lots in the United States are listed below.

    faulty epipens recalled

    The image below indicated where to find the lot number on an EpiPen package.

    recalling epipens

    Patients carrying recalled EpiPens are encouraged to return them for replacements, free of charge. The manufacturing company can also be contacted via 800-796-9526 or customer.service@mylan.com.

    Aldi’s Peas Recalled

    Just under two thousand packages of Season’s Choice Frozen Peas are being voluntarily recalled due to potential Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Listeria infections can be serious or even fatal in young children, the elderly, or other persons with weakened immune systems. Symptoms include high fever, nausea, stiffness, severe headache, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Pregnant women who are infected with Listeria may suffer miscarriages or stillbirths.

    The recalled frozen peas were distributed to Aldi Stores in Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and West Virginia. Identify the recalled product by its label code:

    Consumers may returned recalled products to place of purchase for full refunds.

    Hunt’s Chili Kit Recalled

    On April 2, Conagra initiated a voluntary recall of its Hunt’s Chili Kits due to potential Salmonella contamination of the chili seasoning packets. Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include abdominal cramps, fever, and diarrhea. An otherwise healthy individual may recover without treatment, although some cases of severe diarrhea lead to hospitalization. Salmonella infections pose the greatest risk to infants, the elderly, and others with weakened immune systems.

    The recalled chili kits were distributed in retail stores and online, as well as through military commissaries, across the United States. Identify a recalled product via UPC and Manufacturing Lot Codes.

    Item Description UPC MFG/Lot Code Best By Date
