Questions Surrounding an Independent Third Party's Sterility Testing
Cains Foods is recalling 2,273 six-pack cases of 16 oz. Olde Cape Cod Chipotle Ranch dressing with a "Best By" date of Nov. 30, 2014 because it may contain undeclared milk and egg. People who have allergies to milk and egg run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume products containing these ingredients.
Medaus Pharmacy is voluntarily recalling certain sterile compounded consumer products (see table) due to our inability to confirm that the quality control testing performed on these specific lots by an independent, third party laboratory was conducted in a manner consistent with the highest standards of excellence we demand from ourselves and on behalf of our patients. Though Medaus received test results indicating that these lots met all safety standards, they are being recalled because the independent testing lab’s sterility testing practices as applied to these lots indicate that the product’s sterility cannot be confirmed.
Chobani, Inc., of Twin Falls, Idaho is voluntarily recalling Greek Yogurt. The company has ceased the distribution of the product due to reports of product bloating and swelling and some claims of illness as the company continues its investigation to identify the root cause.
Hubbard Feeds Inc. announced today a voluntary recall of three additional lots of Hubbard Life Homestead FASTGROW AM.0.0125 NAB/NAB MEDICATED because of elevated calcium levels that may be harmful to chickens and turkeys. This voluntary recall is the result of identification of additional lot numbers through assays by the FDA related to a voluntary recall of the same product on July 2, 2013. No adverse events or complaints have been reported to date for the three additional lots listed below.
