FDA Recalls for January 2012
The FDA has reported a recall of all Winn-Dixie LEASA Brand Living Alfalfa Sprouts sold in the 6 oz. package with a UPC code of 7546555912. According to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), the product is potentially contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
FDA has also expanded its voluntary recall of Vanilla Pre-Soaked Sponge Cake to include the Vanilla Flavored Pre-Soaked Sponge Cake Artificially Flavored because of the possibility that small plastic fragments from the packaging were contaminating the product. Last week, the Rich Products Corporation expanded its January 5, 2012 recall of one fourth Sheet Vanilla Soaked Sponge Cake Artificially Flavored to include the 8 inch Vanilla Flavored Pre-Soaked Sponge Cake Artificially Flavored (Product Code: 62938) because of the possibility that small plastic fragments from the packaging were contaminating the product.
Finally, the FDA has released a recall for two of USA Far Ocean Group Inc.'s products sold as cosmetic under the names Vagifresh Ball and Vagifresh Gel. These two products were also sold under the mixed package named Female One, which contained Vagifresh Ball, Vagifresh Gel and Vagifresh Liquid (this recall does not involve Vagifresh Liquid).
