Here is this week's roundup:
- Posh Bakery recalled all of its Butter Mini Croissants and Chocolate Mini-Croissants sold under the Whole Foods brand because of an egg wash that wasn't listed on the labels, said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The mini croissants were sold at 26 Whole Foods Markets in Northern California. The FDA lists the UPC numbers and the stores that carried the baked goods. So far, only one allergic reaction has been reported. Consumers can return them for a refund. Call Posh Bakery at (408) 980-8451 weekdays between noon and 8 p.m. EST.
- Bruce Foods Corp. recalled 10-ounce cans of Food Club Red Enchilada Sauce with the code ECH 451244 and a best buy date of 5/13/2015 because the cans could contain green enchilada sauce instead, which contains wheat and soy in the ingredients, said the FDA. The cans were sold at stores in Alabama, Minnesota, Ohio, Texas and Virginia. So far, no one has reported getting sick from eating the sauce. Consumers can return the cans for a refund. Call the company's Larry Thibodeaux at (337) 365-8101 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST.
- Chrysler recalled 242,780 Dodge Ram pickup trucks because the left side tie rod can break and cause steering problems.
- Meijer Inc. expanded its November 2010 recall of Touch Point Oscillating Ceramic Heaters to include a total of about 13,000 heaters because the oscillating mechanism can short out, creating a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. The company has two reports of heaters catching fire; no one was hurt in either case. The CPSC lists the model number and the UPC code for the heaters included in the recall. Consumers should return the heaters for a refund. Call the company at (800) 927-8699 weekdays between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST.
- Sid Wainer & Son Inc. recalled about 137 pounds of imported, ready-to-eat smoked duck breast products because they could be contaminated with salmonella, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said. The products were distributed for institutional use in Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania. In a related move, Palmex Inc. recalled about 197 pounds of the duck products that were sent to distribution centers in California and the Dominican Republic. Included in both recalls were containers of Magret De Canard Fume Seche Dried Smoked Duck Breast, a product of Canada. The USDA lists the packages codes in both recalls.
- Diving Unlimited International Inc. recalled 1,500 diving weight harnesses because the lanyard can stop the weights from being released, creating a drowning risk to divers, the CPSC said. So far, no one has been hurt. Included in the recall are the DUI Weight & Trim System Classic and DUI Weight & Trim System II. Consumers should not use the harnesses, but they should call the company at (800) 325-8439 weekdays 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST or e-mail the company for a repair to the weight system.
- Petzl America Inc. recalled about 375,000 Scorpio and Absorbica Shock Absorbing Lanyards worldwide because some of them are missing a safety stitch on the attachment loop, which can cause the lanyard to detach from its climbing harness, creating a fall risk for climbers, the CPSC said. So far, no one has been hurt in the United States, although there was a report of a fall injury in France. The CPSC lists the model numbers included in the recall -- all the lanyards were made before May. Consumers should call the company for an inspection and, if needed, a replacement at (877) 740-3826 weekdays between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m. EST.
