The following kashrus alert is from Blue Ribbon Kosher on July 12, 2010.

Pure Market Express raw food products are no longer under Blue Ribbon Kosher Supervision. Pure Market Express, (500 Chestnut St., Chaska, MN 55318) products are not to be considered kosher even when bearing the Blue Ribbon Kosher symbol. The company ships fresh and fresh frozen raw foods nationally, some of which may still display a Blue Ribbon Kosher on their product labels. They were certified kosher for a short time at the beginning of the 2010, but their certification has been removed. With the short shelf life of their products, there should not be any of the originally certified products remaining. Anyone spotting this product with a Blue Ribbon Kosher claim is urged to contact Blue Ribbon Kosher at blueribbonkosher@yahoo.com or 952-925-3651.

The following revised health alert is from the FDA on July 8, 2010.

McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., Fort Washington, PA is recalling 21 lots of over-the-counter medicines. The lots involved, listed below, are sold in the United States, Fiji, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Trinidad & Tobago, and Jamaica. This action is a follow-up to a product recall that McNeil Consumer Healthcare originally announced on January 15, 2010, which was initiated following consumer complaints of a musty or moldy odor, which has been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical called 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA). The risk of serious adverse medical events is remote. This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
These lots are being added to the list of recalled products as a precautionary measure after a continuing internal review determined that some packaging materials used in the lots had been shipped and stored on the same type of wooden pallet that was tied to the presence of TBA in earlier recalled lots. All lots involved in the recall were produced before the January 15, 2010 recall, after which McNeil stopped accepting shipments of materials from its suppliers on that type of pallet.
Consumers who purchased product from the lots included in this recall should stop using the product and contact McNeil Consumer Healthcare for instructions on a refund or replacement. For these instructions, and information regarding how to return or dispose of the product, consumers should log on to the internet at www.mcneilproductrecall.com9 or call 1-888-222-6036 (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and Saturday-Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time). Consumers who have medical concerns or questions should contact their healthcare provider.
Any adverse reactions may also be reported to the FDA's MedWatch Program by fax at 1-800-FDA-0178, by mail at MedWatch, HF-2, FDA, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20852-9787, or on the MedWatch website at www.fda.gov/safety/medwatch/default.htm.10
The product lot numbers for the recalled products can be found on the side of the bottle label.

Ready Pac Foods, Inc., Irwindale, CA is recalling 702 cases of the Baby Spinach variety of Spinach Temptations 6 oz. bagged salads with Useby Dates of July 4 with Product Code 11707B, IR127121 and July 8 with Product Code 12007B, IR130373 because they could be contaminated by Escherichia coli 0157:H7 (Ecoli 0157.H7).
