Product recall: not food! Mouldy children’s books

No, I kid you not.

Sainsbury’s are (quietly) recalling That’s not my Reindeer and That’s not my Santa children’s books, because of concern they may have come into contact with mould.

This could be quite harmful to small children.

They are offering a full refund.

More info, as per, here.

And after a baby is rescued from a burning car, NOW it’s a full recall

Vauxhall is recalling 220,000 Zafiras, as we mentioned a few weeks ago they probably would.

Actual flames would generally be a clue that there was something pretty wrong with your product, but apparently it has taken Vauxhall a while to catch on to the seriousness of this. At least they are now taking action before someone gets hurt.

More info at the Vauxhall website, including how to figure out if your car is a risk.

Yet ANOTHER food recall for hidden ingredients that could harm

More information available from the FSA.


No, really.

There is not only wheat content that does not appear on the label, but also SHELLFISH.
