Three New Recalls Hit Mexico Store Shelves

A new cantaloupe recall has been announced in 12 states, including Missouri. DFI Marketing, Inc. is voluntarily recalling its cantaloupe growing in California. During a routine test, inspectors found salmonella at a distribution center. So far, no illnesses have been reported. All cantaloupes are packed in a DFI brand carton with “826 CALIFORNIA WESTSIDE” stamped in black on the carton. If you bought one of the recalled cantaloupes, you can return it the grocery store.

Also, a pharmaceutical company is recalling pills because they could be more potent than you think. Qualitest is issuing a voluntary nationwide recall of Hydrocodone Bitartrate and Acetaminophen tablets. The pills have a lot number of C1440512A and an expiration date of December 2013. The company says it is possible some of the tablets could exceed the weight specification and could be super potent. So far, no injuries have been reported. Finally, stores are pulling a pet food from the shelves because of a salmonella risk. Breeder’s Choice Pet Food is recalling AvoDerm Natural Lamb Meal and Brown Rice Adult Dog Formula. The products have a lot code of 1000065074 and “best before” dates of 28 Aug 2013, 29 Aug 2013, and 30 Aug 2013. The salmonella risk is for animals, as well as for those who handle the food. Again, no human or pet-related injuries have been reported so far.
