Total Recall: Target Children's Frog Mask, More Listeria, Unlabeled Peanuts
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.
