Odwalla, Inc. is recalling Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monster beverage in 12-oz and 32-oz bottles, with "enjoy by" dates prior to and including 23 MAY 2012, because of reports from consumers allergic to peanuts and/or tree nuts experiencing severe allergic reactions after consuming this beverage. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts and/or tree nuts may run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monster product that is being recalled includes all "enjoy by" dates prior to 23 MAY 2012 and the specific UPC codes listed below.

The products being recalled are:

UPC Code Product Description Lot Code

These Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monster beverages were distributed nationwide through retail food stores and on-premise foodservice establishments during the last seven weeks. The 12-oz bottles of Chocolate Protein Monster are also available in an Odwalla Protein Monster "variety pack" sold exclusively at Costco during this same timeframe. The variety pack is a 10-pack of 12-oz bottles of the different Protein Monster varieties, four bottles of which are Chocolate Protein Monster.

Chocolate Protein Monster is sold in 12-oz and 32-oz re-sealable plastic packaging and must be kept refrigerated. The beverage labels carry the brand name "Odwalla" and the descriptors "Chocolate Protein Soy and Dairy Protein Shake" and "Protein Monster." Specific "enjoy by" dates can be found printed on the neck of the bottles.

To date, four consumers have contacted Odwalla to report allergic reactions after drinking the product. These four consumers are not known to be allergic to soy and milk but report being allergic to peanuts and/or tree nuts.

Odwalla has notified the FDA of these consumer reports and is working with FDA to investigate the cause of these allergic reactions. This beverage contains no peanut or tree nut ingredients, and the production facility where it is produced does not make any peanut-containing products. While we have found no evidence of peanuts or tree nuts in the product at this point, in an abundance of caution to safeguard consumers, Odwalla is recalling this product while continuing to investigate the cause of the reactions.

Consumers who are allergic to peanuts or peanuts and tree nuts and who have Odwalla Chocolate Protein Monster product with the specified "enjoy by" dates are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Odwalla at 1-800-639-2552, 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday or visit the Odwalla website: http://www.odwalla.com/news/ChocolateProteinQA.html.

Nest Collective announced today that it is voluntarily recalling 8150 selling units of its Jammy Sammy - Strawberry Jam & Peanut Butter Flavor Snack Size Sandwich Bars due to a mislabeled inner wrapper. The cartons contain the best by date June 28, 2012 and are marked with the following universal product code (UPC) #89676600116 6 located on the bottom of the package. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts (or peanut butter) run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these individual bars.

The product being recalled is:

UPC Code Product Description Lot Code
8 96766 00116 6 Jammy Sammy - Strawberry Jam & Peanut Butter - 5 c 06/28/12

No illnesses have been reported in connection with this product.

The recall was undertaken because, while the cartons of this lot of product are correctly labeled, some of the individual bars are incorrectly labeled as Grammy Sammy - Honey Graham and Strawberry Yogurt, and show the ingredient statement of that product. Both the selling unit and individually wrapped bars include information that the product was produced in a facility that processes peanuts as well as other allergens. The Jammy Sammy product contains organic peanut flour and organic peanut extract, but the inner wrappers are mislabeled with the Grammy Sammy information. Consumers who are allergic to peanut products should not use these products. People experiencing any health issue should seek immediate medical attention.

HimalayaUSA® announced it is conducting a voluntary recall of Organique by Himalaya Nourishing Night Cream with batch #S691001 and batch #S691002 effective immediately. This product was distributed nationwide in the U.S. and in Canada. For identification purposes, the product is sold in a cylinder shaped teal bottle with an orange cap. The batch numbers are located on the bottom of the bottle.

The product being recalled is:

UPC Code Product Description Lot Code
60506920019 Himalaya Organique Nourishing Night Cream 3.38 fl #S691001
60506920019 Himalaya Organique Nourishing Night Cream 3.38 fl #S691002

The bacteria staphylococcus aureus and fungus were found present in samples of Nourishing Night Cream batch #S691001 and were traced to the bottle’s pump components, which were supplied by a third party manufacturer. These microbes are found in the environment and are frequently seen as normal flora found on skin, though they may become opportunistic in immunocompromised people or if introduced to broken skin. As there is no way to determine if all pumps used contained these microbes, HimalayaUSA is recalling the entire batch.

Although no microbes were found in batch #S691002, the same pump components may have been used in its manufacturing, so in an abundance of safety, HimalayaUSA is voluntarily recalling this batch, too.

This recall is effective only for the batch numbers indicated and not for any other Nourishing Night Cream batch. The recall was proactively taken by HimalayaUSA immediately upon learning of the presence microbes in the product.

For more information, please contact the vendor at 800-869-4640 or read about the recall on the FDA website.

Whole Foods Market announces that it is recalling items sold in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and Wisconsin that came from its supplier Rolf's Patisserie of Lincolnwood, Illinois. The recalled items have been used as an ingredient in prepared food and bakery department products or repackaged and sold under the Whole Foods Market Label. Rolf's Patisserie has recalled all items that were made after Nov. 1, 2010.

Products produced by Rolf's Patisserie have been connected to several outbreaks of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) food poisoning. To date no illnesses have been reported from consumers eating products sold by Whole Foods Market.

A food item contaminated with S. aureus, the bacterium responsible for producing toxins in foods, can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea. The illness usually lasts for one to two days, although severe cases may last as long as three days. However, certain individuals, such as the elderly or very young, may require medical treatment for dehydration. Consumers should not eat the gingerbread houses and should dispose of them in a sealed container so that people and animals (including wild animals) cannot get access to and eat them.

All of the following Whole Food Market (WFM) Products are included in this recall:
