Recall Roundup: July 18, 2009

Here is today's list of food safety recalls, product withdrawals and allergy alerts. The live links will take you directly to the official recall notices and company news releases that contain detailed information for each recall and alert.

United States
  • Allergy Alert: Hiland-Roberts Ice Cream (Norfolk, NE) recalls specific lots of various flavors of Espo's (distributed by Espo’s Cucina Dolce, Inc.) and Nature's Promise (distributed by Foodhold USA LLC) Sorbetto, due to the presence of undeclared milk. The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company and Giant Food LLC have issued recall notices for Nature's Promise Lemon Sorbetto and Nature's Promise Strawberry Sorbetto as a result of the manufacturer's recall.
  • Consumer Product Safety Recall: Luv N’ Care, LTD (Monroe, LA) recalls Nuby Gel Filled Teethers. These products have been found to contain Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus circulans in the gel. While these bacterial species do not usually cause illness, they can infect children with weakened immune systems if the teethers are punctured and some of the contaminated gel is swallowed.
