Consumers nationwide are smart to keep track of recent news about product recalls and defects, since potentially life-threatening issues come to light continuously. The following is more information about recent recalls of products available in Texas.
A ready-to-eat salad product made in Fort Worth, Texas, establishment Mibo Fresh Food has been recalled due to undeclared allergens and misbranding. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) recently announced that the company has recalled about 3,434 pounds of the ready-to-eat salad products.
The products subject to recall are:
- Two 7.2-oz. tray packages containing Mibo Fresh Baby Greens with Turkey and Mango Salad with Sweet Onion Dijon Dressing.
The best-by dates for the recalled products were from April 7, 2017, through April 16, 2017. The salad products subject to recall have establishment number “P-27399” in the USDA inspection mark.
The recalled products were shipped to Costco retail location in Texas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.
No reports of adverse reactions resulting from consumption of these products have been confirmed. Consumers who bought these products were urged to either throw them away or return them to the place of purchase.
Target stores recalled several Easter toys because they can be life-threatening if a child swallows them. Items recalled were all sold in the $1 section of Target stores across the nation, and they include:
- Hatch & Grow Easter Eggs and Easter Grow Toys with model number 234-25-1200 on the back of the packaging
- Hatch Your Own Dino, with model number 234-09-0016 on the label inserted in the packaging
The recalled toys grow when they absorb water or other liquids. If one of the toys is ingested, it could expand inside a child’s body, causing intestinal obstructions. Possible symptoms include vomiting, pain, dehydration, and complications leading to death. It is possible that these toys may not show up on an x-ray, and surgery would be required to remove the toy from the body.
Anyone who purchased any of these Target products can return them at Target for a full refund.
