Sandwiches that may possibly contain adulterated hummus recalled by 7-Eleven

A batch of 7-Eleven sandwiches made available in 16 states, including Iowa, are being recalled due to fears that the Sabra hummus products they contain may be contaminated by listeria bacteria, a report of Food Safety News reported on November 24.

Reports said the 7-Eleven chicken-flavored sandwiches with October 17 to November 21 “best buy” dates were taken out of store shelves days after Sabra Dipping Co. LLC issued a recall to their hummus products that may have been adulterated with listeria. The recalled hummus was reportedly identified to be one of the ingredients used in the sandwiches, recall documents revealed. According to federal health authorities, consumers who have immune system problems, children, and the elderly may suffer serious infection if they accidentally consume food contaminated with listeria.

Responsibility of addressing Takata recall is on automakers

U.S. auto safety regulators recently said it is the responsibility of automakers to fully address all the vehicles that may have hazardous Takata airbags, a report of Fortune stated on November 3.

Chief of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) worries the efforts of car manufacturers to repair their vehicles that might still have defective airbags are insufficient. Millions of vehicles in the U.S. are under recall because they have Takata airbags that could explode during deployment and release pieces of metal from a broken inflator. The airbag defect was linked to dozens of deaths and injuries in the U.S. and other countries. Takata faced pressure from the NHTSA to issue the recall.

If you or a loved one sustained injuries in a car accident because of a defective Takata airbag, the legal team at the LaMarca Law Group, P.C. in Iowa can work on your behalf. Our skilled legal team may be able to help you determine if you deserve compensations from negligent automakers. Learn more about your options from us today by calling (877) 327-2600.

Nut products sold in the US recalled due to Salmonella risks

A North Carolina-based company recently issued a recall on the “Diamond of California” brand of macadamia nuts after a sample contained harmful Salmonella bacteria, an August 31 article of Food Safety News stated.

According to reports, Snyder’s-Lance Inc., is cooperating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) after a laboratory test detected the hazardous bacteria in one of its samples. Neither the recalling company nor the FDA received illness complaints before the recall was issued. Snyder’s-Lance advised consumers to contact them to get their money back. When ingested, food containing Salmonella bacteria can cause severe or even fatal illness to children and older adults who have a very weak immune system. For healthy people, the bacteria can trigger digestive problems, nausea, vomiting, and fever.

1.4M GM vehicles that may catch fire recalled again

American automaker General Motors (GM) recently issued its third recall of about 1.4 million vehicles due to fire risks that were not corrected in previous recalls.

According to GM, the third recall became a possibility after the company received reports that the recalls in 2008 and in 2009 both failed to address the oil leak issue that was causing some vehicles to catch fire. Of the vehicles that have already undergone repairs during previous recalls, 1,300 reportedly caught fire.

The affected vehicles may catch fire if the oil from the valve cover gasket leaks onto the hot components of the engine. GM is aware of 19 complaints of minor injuries link to the issue, and in 2008 they acknowledge that 267 vehicles caught fire and that 17 of these incidents resulted to structural damage.

When you consider how much trust you put in your vehicle to carry you and your family safely throughout your days, it can be incredibly frightening to learn that such a serious defect exists.
