All Lots of Hyland’s Baby Teething Products Recalled due to Mislabeling

 

Los Angeles, California, 2017-Apr-17 — /EPR Retail News/ — Standard Homeopathic Company is recalling all lots of Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets sold in retail stores to the consumer level. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has concluded that the medicines have been found to contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna alkaloids that may differ from the calculated amount on the products’ labels.

FDA believes that belladonna represents a serious health hazard to children and that the effects of belladonna are unpredictable. The Agency has stated to the Company, “There is no known safe dose or toxic dose of belladonna in children because of the many factors that affect it.”

The Hyland’s Baby Teething Tablets and Hyland’s Baby Nighttime Teething Tablets were used to provide temporary relief of teething symptoms in children. The recall includes all products that retailers may have had in stock. The Company stopped making and shipping the medicines nationwide in October 2016. This recall ensures the removal of any possible remaining products that may be on store shelves. No other Standard Homeopathic Company/Hyland’s products are affected by this recall.

“We initiated this recall even after discontinuing production last fall because it is appropriate to do what our regulating agency has formally requested,” said J.P. Borneman, PhD, chairman and CEO of Standard Homeopathic Company. “We are committed to maintaining and earning the trust consumers have placed in Standard Homeopathic Company. We have worked for 114 years to build relationships with our consumers. We intend to preserve that tradition of trust.”

Standard Homeopathic Company is notifying its distributors and retailers by mail and is arranging for the return of all recalled products.  Consumers who have products which are being recalled should discard the product.

Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact Standard Homeopathic Company by calling 1-800-991-3376 (Monday-Friday 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Pacific Time). Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they believe they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using this drug product.

Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of these products may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Ghiringhelli Specialty Foods recalls 2,444 pounds of poultry products due to mislabeling and undeclared allergens – USDA’s FSIS

WASHINGTON, 2016-Jun-29 — /EPR Retail News/ — Ghiringhelli Specialty Foods, Inc., a Vallejo, Calif., establishment, is recalling approximately 2,444 pounds of poultry products due to mislabeling and undeclared allergens, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products contain soy, wheat, and fish (anchovies), known allergens which are not declared on the product label. Additionally, the Caesar Salad products usually have the statement “May Contain Traces of Shellfish.” This statement is missing on the recalled products.

The chicken Caesar Salad items were produced on June 22, 2016. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels]

  • 9-OZ. Plastic clamshell with clear lid containers of “TRADER GIOTTO’S CAESAR SALAD WITH CHICKEN BREAST” bearing plant number P-17156 and “USE BY 06/28” on the label.

The products subject to recall bear establishment number “P-17156” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to retail locations in California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington state.

The company notified FSIS of the mislabeling on June 25, 2016, after the company received notice of the issue from a customer. The salads have the correct label on the top of the package, but exhibit an incorrect back label for “Trader Joe’s Chicken & Roast Beet Salad.” [See labels.]

There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.

When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

Consumers and media with questions about the recall can contact Mike Ghiringhelli, Jr., General Manager, at (707) 561-7670 ext. 105.
