Beech-Nut Nutrition is voluntarily recalling and discontinuing one lot of its rice cereal baby food. During routine sampling, one lot of the Beech-Nut Stage 1, Single Grain Rice Cereal was found to contain a level of inorganic arsenic above the limit set by the FDA. Although inorganic arsenic naturally occurs in the environment – like in water, soil, and food – Beech-Nut acknowledges that elevated exposure to the element can put the health of children at risk. Therefore, they are not only recalling the lot of contaminated food but are discontinuing the production of the product due until they can find consistent rice flour that meets the FDA’s inorganic arsenic level requirements. The recalled Beech-Nut Stage 1, Single Grain Rice Cereal that has been recalled has a UPC of 52200034705, an expiration date of May 1st, 2022, and product codes 103470XXXX and 093470XXXX.
More than 1.7 million Klein Tool voltage testers are being recalled. Voltage testers are used to detect the presence of electricity in a piece of equipment. However, the Klein Tool Non-Contact Voltage Test (model NCVT-1 with date codes ending in H7) has been reported as faulty. The on/off button can remain depressed and therefore can fail to alert users to the presence of live voltage, posing a shock hazard to users. Roughly 1,690,000 units are being recalled in the United States and about 67,800 units were sold in Canada.
