A California farm that federal health officials traced to the recent E.coli outbreak from romaine lettuce has recalled additional produce “out of an abundance of caution,” the facility announced Thursday.

Adam Bros. Farming Inc. in Santa Maria has recalled red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and cauliflower that was harvest from Nov. 27 to Nov. 30.

SOME ROMAINE LETTUCE SAFE TO EAT AGAIN, FDA SAYS

While none of the recalled products have tested positive for E. coli, and no illnesses associated with these produce items have been reported, the farm said: “Out of an abundance of caution, Adam Bros. Farming, Inc. is initiating this voluntary recall in cooperation with the FDA.”

“The recall was initiated after it was discovered that sediment from a reservoir near where the produce was grown tested positive for E. coli,” the farm explained.

Adam Bros. Farming Inc. added the recalled produce was “grown in particular fields” and does not involve all of its products.

“None of the filtered, treated water has tested positive for E. coli, all E. coli tests returning negative,” Adam Bros. Farming Inc. said, adding the bacteria “may cause a diarrheal illness from which most healthy adults can recover completely within a week. Some people can develop a form of kidney failure called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS). HUS is most likely to occur in young children and the elderly. The condition can lead to serious kidney damage and even death.”

While Adam Bros. Farming Inc. has been linked to the food poisoning outbreak from romaine lettuce, federal health officials cautioned that other farms are likely involved in the E. coli outbreak and consumers should continue checking the label before purchasing romaine lettuce.

CERTAIN KOTEX TAMPONS RECALLED FOLLOWING REPORTS THEY UNRAVEL, COME APART INSIDE BODY

At least 59 people in 15 states have now been sickened by the tainted lettuce, the FDA said.

That said, regulators said they are fairly confident that the lettuce which first triggered the outbreak has been removed from the market. The FDA told consumers to avoid romaine lettuce just before Thanksgiving.

Certain Kotex tampons recalled following reports they unravel, come apart inside body

A certain type of Kotex tampons has been voluntarily recalled by Kimberly-Clark after the company received reports that the feminine hygiene product was unraveling or coming apart inside some users’ bodies.

The tampons subject to the recall — U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, regular absorbency — caused some users “to seek medical attention to remove tampon pieces left in the body,” Kimberly-Clark said in a news release Tuesday. The company added there has also been a “small number of reports of infections, vaginal irritation, localized vaginal injury, and other symptoms” associated with the U by Kotex Sleek Tampons, regular absorbency.

The company did not specify how many women have been affected.

The tampons were manufactured between Oct. 7, 2016, and Oct. 16, 2018, Kimberly-Clark said. They were distributed between Oct. 17, 2016, and Oct. 23, 2018, and sold by retailers across the U.S. and Canada.

“Retailers have been alerted to remove the recalled lot numbers from shelves and post a notification in their stores,” the company said, adding no other “U by Kotex-branded products are subject to this recall.”

Anyone who purchased the affected product should stop using it immediately, the company said, advising those who experience vaginal injury, such as pain or bleeding, vaginal irritation, such as itching or swelling, abdominal pain, nausea or any other symptoms as listed by Kimberly-Clark should “seek immediate medical attention.”

Those who have further questions regarding the recall can contact Kimberly-Clark's consumer service team (1-888-255-3499) between 7:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday.

Popular dog food brands facing recall for potentially ‘toxic levels’ of vitamin D, FDA warns

Multiple dry dog food brands are being recalled after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said they contain “toxic” levels of vitamin D, which can be deadly to dogs.

The brands include Nutrisca, Natural Life, Sportsman's Pride and Evolve, among others. Many of the affected brands were made by the same manufacturer. Various sizes and flavors — which include chicken, lamb and rice — are subject to the recall. A full list can be found on the FDA’s website.

Additional recalls could be announced.

While vitamin D is “an essential nutrient for dogs … very high amounts can cause serious health problems like kidney failure or death," the FDA said in a statement. The recalls were issued after pet owners contacted the food and drug agency with reports of vitamin D toxicity in their dogs after they consumed food from one of these brands.

“FDA scientists have evaluated samples of some of these products, and State and private lab test results indicate that the food contained as much as approximately 70 times the intended amount of vitamin D,” the FDA added.

In severe cases, vitamin D toxicity can lead to kidney failure or even death in dogs. Those who survive may have “long-term impairments,” including kidney or heart disease, which require “life-long management," according to VCA Animal Hospitals.

If your dog eats one of the affected brands, be on the lookout for vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst, weight loss, increased urination and excessive drooling — all of which are signs of vitamin D toxicity, according to the FDA.

“Pet owners should discontinue feeding these recalled products,” the FDA said, noting "the only pet products that have been impacted are food made for dogs" at this time.

Most E. coli bacteria are not harmful, but some produce toxins that can cause severe illness. People who get sick from toxin-producing E. coli come down with symptoms about three to four days after consumption, with many suffering bloody diarrhea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting.

According to a news release on the USDA website, there have been no adverse illnesses reported due to consumption of contaminated products.
