Consumer Alerts: Meat Recalls, Dog Treat Warning & BBB Fraud Summit
The USDA has issued an “urgent” recall of meat products sold in grocery stores. Reser’s fine foods are recalling nearly 23-thousand pounds of chicken, ham and beef products, because of a possible listeria contamination. The items include 12 ounce to five-pound packs of pre-made chicken salad, ham salad, potato salad and baked beans.
They were sold under brands including Cobble Street, Cross Valley Farms and Millers. The products bear the establishment number “e-s-t 13520” or “p-13520” inside the USDA Mark of inspection. All of the products were distributed to stores across dozens of states, from Wyoming to Alabama.
A full recall list can be found on the food and drug administration’s website at http://www.fda.gov.
Hyundai is recalling about 27,500 of its Genesis sedans to fix faulty brakes.
The recall of the sedan from the 2009 to 2012 model years is for issues with the brake system’s Hydraulic Electronic Control Unit.
The recall is a follow-up to one last March that didn’t catch all the vehicles affected by the problem. The affected cars were manufactured from April 1, 2008, through March 16, 2012.
Dog Jerky Treat Alert:
Veterinarians from BluePearl Veterinary Partners are urging caution after the Food and Drug Administration issued a request for members of the general public and their veterinarians to send any information they have if their pet has become ill after eating jerky treats.
Since 2007, the FDA says they have received reports of 3,600 dogs and 10 cats becoming ill from eating jerky treats in the U.S. Approximately 580 of those pets have died, according to the FDA.
Most of the jerky treats involved in the illnesses have been from China.
