Food maker Texas Best Proteins is conducting a product recall of more than 25,332 pounds of Cajun dirty rice due to possible allergens.
The recall was initiated after the company was notified by its supplier that the Worcestershire sauce, used in making the product, contained peanuts, a popular allergen. According to U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA), the known allergen, which may cause adverse reactions, was not included on the product’s packaging label.
The items subject to the recall are limited to Farm to Market Foods Cajun Style Dirty Rice and Turkey Dinner Kits. These were packaged October 27, 2016, November 1, 2016, and November 11, 2016, bearing the establishment number “EST. 950.”
The USDA warns the public about the adverse reaction that may be caused by the allergens once ingested. Consumers with a known peanut allergy are urged to stop the consumption of the products and dispose of them immediately. To date, the agency has not received any reports of illness related to the incident.

About 6,000 Leisure Ways® pink butterfly-themed children’s camp chairs, moon chairs, and swings have been recalled due to excessive levels of lead, which is a violation of the federal lead paint standard.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is recalling 811,586 vehicles after it was found that a problem in the warning systems of the vehicles was causing individuals to exit without actually shifting into ‘park.’ While many vehicles on the market have gear selectors that change position based on the gear a car is in, the recalled vehicles have systems that remain in an upright position whether a vehicle is in park, drive, reverse, or neutral. This gear system has apparently caused many consumers to falsely believe that their vehicle was in park when it was not, potentially causing the vehicle to drift away. So far, 41 injuries have been reported in relation to this gear selector.
Although these vehicles currently have chimes and other systems to warn customers that their car is not in park, the company has stated that they will increase warning systems as their current measures may not be enough. The new enhanced warning systems will automatically keep vehicles from moving in some circumstances, even if the park option is not engaged. The recalled vehicles include 2012-2014 Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 Sedans and 2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokees.
Vehicle defects such as this are becoming more and more common.
