Recent Recalls Include Food Products, Medications, and Medical Devices

By Alpert Schreyer on September 30, 2011

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regularly publishes information about product recalls and safety alerts to help American citizens keep themselves safe from defective products and unsafe foods, medications, cosmetics, and medical devices. Recent recalls include several food products, several brands of oral contraceptives, and a dangerous medical device.

Food Products

In September, the FDA released recall information for Del Bueno Casero Queso Fresco cheese, citing the presence of Listeria monocytogenes in some 16-oz. packages. Sweet Rocky and Colorado Fresh Rocky Ford varieties of whole cantaloupe from Jensen Farms were also recalled for the presence of Listeria bacteria. Food products are not always recalled for the presence of infectious agents. The FDA also issues recall notices for foods that contain undeclared allergens, as just a small amount of an allergen can lead to death in someone allergic to peanuts, milk, soy, wheat, and known allergens.

Quaker Chewy Smashbar Graham Pretzel snack bars, various chocolate products from Chocolate Decadence, and SoyNilla-flavored protein powder from Watkins Incorporated were recalled for undeclared milk, while Deer Golden raisins were recalled for undeclared sulfites.


On September 15, the FDA issued a recall for Cyclafem, Gildess, Emoquette, and several other contraceptives due to a package error that may reduce the efficacy of the drugs. The FDA also recalled Slim Forte, a slimming capsule produced by Intercharm Incorporated, due to the presence of undeclared sibutramine.

Medical Devices

Some medical devices harm more than they help. On August 31, the FDA recalled the ShoulderFlex massager produced by King International LLC because of the risk of strangulation and death associated with the product.
