PRODUCT AND CODE: Sci-Fit Tri-Cuts Dietary Supplement Capsules sold in 90 and 180 count bottles.  The product contains 1000 mcg of tiratricol (100 mg of Tricol).  The product is sold 12 bottles per case.  The product label states “Formulated and Distributed by: Sci-Fit, 140 Pennsylvania Avenue, Oakmont, PA”.  The firm recalled all codes of the product on the market at the time the recall was initiated.

REASON: The product contained tiratricol (also known as triiodothyroacetic acid or TRIAC), an active thyroid hormone.  The product’s label recommends to not exceed three capsules daily.  This dose is in excess of the usual replacement dose of thyroid hormone and therefore would cause hyperthyroidism. Particularly in patients with underlying cardiac disease, this poses a significant health risk because of immediate, life-threatening consequences as heart attack, stroke, heart failure and arrhythmia.

Swissrose International, Inc. of Moonachie, N.J., is voluntarily recalling some Bauer Butterkäse semi-soft cheese, a product manufactured in Germany and distributed nationwide in the United States, because the "egg white lysozyme" was not specified in the food ingredient list. On the ingredient lists, the word "enzymes" was used rather than specifically stating "egg white lysozymes," which are enzymes derived from eggs. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. Other than to egg-sensitive consumers, the product being recalled is safe for consumption.

 

The product was sold in random weight chunks between 7 and 9 ounces in deli cases at retail stores. The recall only affects packages whose label does not state "egg white lysozymes" on the ingredient list. Starting on June 26, 2001, these products were removed from the shelf and relabeled. However, if you purchased this product before the relabeling was done, the ingredient list will be in error.

 

Biery Cheese Company is voluntarily recalling its 8 to 10 oz. packages of Horseradish, Colored American, White American and Colored Colby Cubes because they have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria Monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young, pregnant, elderly, frail or adults with weakened immune systems. The recalled cubes were distributed in retail stores in Central PA. The product comes in an 8 to 10 oz. clear package with Biery label and sell by date marked 12-3-01 on top of package.The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by the Company revealed the possible presence of Listeria Monocytogenes in 8 to 10 oz. packages of cubes.

 

Consumers who have purchased 8 to 10 oz. packages of cubes are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the Company at 1-800-243-3731.

Quality Plus Products, Inc. of Bellingham, WA, is recalling its 7 oz. containers of "Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" because they may contain undeclared egg yolk. People who have allergies to egg yolk run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

 

The recalled "Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" was distributed in northwest Washington state retail foods markets. The product comes in a 7 ounce clear plastic container with a white lid with the label on top and an expiration date on the side of the carton. All expiration dates are included. The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the egg yolk-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg yolk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes. Production of the product has been suspended until FDA and the company are certain that the problem has been corrected.

 

Consumers who have purchased 7 ounce cartons of "Jackson's Quality Plus Smoked Wild Salmon Spread" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 360-734-1275.

 

 

Villarreal Distributors of San Antonio, Texas, is recalling over 20,000 candy containing clay pots of JARRITOS brand Tamarindo candy because the candy has been found to contain excessive levels of lead. Lead is very toxic and dangerous to humans, especially children, women of childbearing age, pregnant women and their unborn children. Although people with lead in their blood often do not exhibit the symptoms of lead toxicity, such symptoms include the following: stomach aches, colic, nausea, vomiting, abnormal irritability, and insomnia. Lead can also permanently damage the central nervous system, resulting in learning difficulties in school children as well as cause other long-term health problems.

 

The JARRITOS brand Tamarindo candy was distributed in IL, OH, WI, NJ, MI, IA, MO, MN, IN, TN, KY, NE, SC, AL and MD, through retail sites, especially ethnic markets, stores and bakeries that cater to Latinos. The product is imported from Mexico, manufactured by La Barca II Dulceria in Jalisco, Mexico.

 

The product is sold as 12 candy containing clay pots per labeled package. The label says JARRITOS and Tamarindo 100% Natural with a picture of a boy. Each pot is also individually packaged in an unlabeled clear plastic bag and some retail sites may sell the pots individually. Each pot contains approximately 30 grams of the candy. The recall was the result of a routine sampling program by the Food and Drug Administration that revealed that the candy had levels as high as 4.60 ppm. It is believed the lead has leached from the clay pots into the candy.

 

Consumers are urged not to consume the product and return any product in their possession to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions should contact Villarreal Distributors at (210) 224-9720.

 

 

FDA WARNS CONSUMERS ABOUT IMPORTED JELLY CUP TYPE CANDY THAT POSES A POTENTIAL CHOKING HAZARD

The FDA is warning consumers of a potential choking hazard posed by conjac jelly cups imported from Asia. Some of the candy bears warning labels, suggesting that it not be eaten by children or the elderly. Other labels warn of a choking hazard and say to chew the candy thoroughly. Some of the candy is sold with no warning label at all.

 

Local authorities have reported three childrens’ deaths from choking in the United States associated with conjac jelly candy. There have also been reports of deaths in other countries. The candy is sold in several fruit flavors. It is found in small sealed plastic cups that may or may not contain a chunk of fruit. Each jelly cup is about the size of a single-serve coffee creamer. The candy is sold in retail stores and on the internet and is sold under a variety of names.

The Therapeutic Products Directorate of Health Canada is warning consumers in Ontario and Quebec not to use Pharma Choice Acetaminophen with Caffeine and Codeine Caplets, lot number 1C484.

This product should not be used if you: (1) are on anticoagulant therapy or have a bleeding disorder because it could result in serious bleeding; (2) suffer from stomach ulcers because it could cause serious complications; (3) are allergic to ASA because it could cause a severe allergic reaction; (4) are an asthmatic sensitive to ASA because it could result in a serious asthma attack; (5) are pregnant because it could cause problems/complications; or (6) a child or adolescent suffering from chicken pox because it could cause a serious adverse reaction.

 

The product, manufactured by Vita Health Products Inc., of Winnipeg and distributed by Medis Health and Pharmaceutical Services Inc., of Saint-Laurent, Quebec, is packed in white, oblong bottles with the words "Pharma Choice" printed across the label. The bottles from lot number 1C484 can be identified by their contents, which are in the form of round tablets, rather than long oval caplets as indicated on the label. The product was distributed in Quebec and Ontario. Health Canada advises people who suffer from the above conditions and have taken this product recently to consult their physician/health care professional.

 

A recall has been voluntarily initiated by the manufacturer. However, 45 bottles of this product are unaccounted for, having been sold to consumers. There have been no reports of illness.
