  • Consumer Product Safety Recall: The Coca-Cola Company has announced a voluntary withdrawal of 22,000 sets of themed drinking glasses for quality reasons. One glass, which is designed to look like a can of Coca-Cola®, did not meet our quality expectations. While recent tests indicated some cadmium in the decoration on the outside of the glass, the low levels detected do not pose a safety hazard or health threat. The glasses were sold across the United States in retails stores and online, including at Coca-Cola retail stores, and other locations.

  • Food Safety Recall: Charcuterie La Tour Eiffel recalls sliced and shaved La Belle Bretagne Cooked Garlic Roasted Pork and Tour Eiffel Roasted Pork Old Style(175g packages; Best Before Nov 18, Dec 2 and in variable weight with best before date of Dec 25 and 31). The recalled meats were also sold at deli counters as shaved or sliced La Belle Bretagne Cooked Garlic Roasted Pork with a Best Before date of December 14, 26, January 3 or 9, and Tour Eiffel Roasted Pork Old Style with a Best Before date of December 31. The recall was initiated because the products were insufficiently cooked, and present a health hazard.
