Target Frog Mask Breathing Problem

Ten days before Halloween, Target (TGT) on Friday recalled thousands of frog-themed masks for children, citing a suffocation risk.

No incidents have been reported, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. The 3,400 plush masks, made in China, were sold nationwide between August and September, retailing for $1. The UPC code is 06626491474.

Consumers are asked to return the product to any Target for a refund.

Another Listeria Scare -- Blue Cheese

After blue cheese samples tested positive for listeria, Indiana-based Fair Oaks Royal Blue Cheese issued a recall for products purchased on or after Sept. 25. The blue cheese is labeled "Fair Oaks Royal Blue Cheese" and comes in 1/3-pound and 1/2-pound packages. The packages were sold in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, involving less than 20 pounds of cheese.

The announcement earlier this week comes on the heels of a cantaloupe-transmitted listeria outbreak that has killed 25.

No illnesses have been reported to date. The incubation period for listeria infection can last as long as 70 days. Contact Fair Oaks General Manager Julie Basich at 219-394-2025, ext. 314, for more information.

Peanut Possibility Unmarked in Fiber One Bars

General Mills has recalled a batch of Chocolate flavor Fiber One 90-Calorie Chewy Bars because their labels did not indicate the possible presence of sensitive ingredients, including peanuts. No allergic reactions have been reported so far, the FDA wrote on its website Thursday.

All of the affected bars come from 5-count boxes with the "Better if Used By" engraving of 19MAY2012BV. Consumers requesting a replacement or refund should contact General Mills at 1-800-231-0308.

Mini S'Mores Switched With Peanut Clusters

Nassau Candy Distributors has recalled some Nancy Adams Classics Mini S'Mores because peanut clusters had been inadvertently included in the packaging and not labeled. The product was sold nationwide in 5.5-ounce boxes with a manufacturing code of I1119 or I1120 under UPC 6 18645 21923 9.

The FDA said Thursday it has received no word of allergic reactions to the peanuts. Concerned consumers are asked to call Nassau Candy at 1-516-433-7100, ext. 7297 or 7287, during business hours.

Don't support China, their sales was up 9.1, while USA has 9.1 unemployed numbers dont lie!!. Make your child's costume and save. OR Buy American, Canadian & British, you can bet your purchase will be safe for your children.

Surprise, China will bury us with poisoned and unsafe goods. And the problem is that they are doing it to our children.

How about recalling EVERYTHING made in China and re-manufacturing it here in the US? Of course, that would create too many jobs and put our economy back on trach too quickly. So, let's just keep making China stronger and wealthier, why we stay on our knees and all our resources go to the Middle East.

With their county having more than one-fifth of the world's entire world population, do we really expect the Chinese to have any compassion, emphathy, or respect for each and every human life as we do? A few days a 2 year old girl was run over 2x in the middle of the street and left to die while passers by and motorists just looked her little body and went about their business.

We are making the Chinese wealthier and wealthier. They are coming over here and buying up million dollar properties with CASH, while we are on our knees struggling to keep our modest homes and feed our kids.

Why don't entrepreneurs start businesses here with really inexpensive items and labor, put Americans to work, and make it less attractive for other companies to buy from the Chinese. Even if these businesses do not show a big profit at first, they will make up their losses eventually by selling in volume.

If we don't do something fast, the Chinese will take over this whole country-- not militarily, just by gradual economic superiority. Let's demand that wal-Mart and other stores start offering less junk made in China and generate a demand for more items made in America.

Next time you're in the mood for Chow Mein, have a pizza instead!
