    Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc. is adding more products to its voluntary recall of packaged salads linked to a listeria outbreak, including some packages that were distributed in California, KTLA sister station WJW reported. Dole issued a recall in December after two people died and 16 people were infected with listeria linked to its salads. According to the Food and Drug Administration, listeria monocytogenes is a bacterium that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people as well as others with weakened immune systems. Listeria infection can also cause pregnant women to have miscarriages and...

    On 30 December 2020, QIAGEN issued an Urgent Field Safety Notice regarding a batch of their Covid tests: “In some cartridges, the reaction chamber that should hold the reaction mix for the SARS-CoV-2 target falsely contains the mix for atypical bacteria targets Mycoplasma pneumoniae, Legionella pneumophila, and Bordetella pertussis, and vice versa.”It is the first on a rolling list of field safety notices (“FSNs”) from medical device manufacturers published since January 2020.

    Procter & Gamble issued a voluntary recall last Friday of nearly three dozen aerosol hair products, including dry shampoos and dry conditioners, due to the potential presence of benzene, a cancer-causing agent. The affected brands include Pantene, Aussie, Herbal Essences, and Waterless produced in the United States. The company also recalled certain Old Spice and Secret aerosol spray antiperspirants and Old Spice "Below Deck" spray products last month due to the presence of benzene. Upon closer examination, they found "unexpected levels" of benzene in the rest of its aerosol products. "Following recent reports that indicated traces of benzene in some...

    A Michigan-based company has vastly expanded its recall of meat that may be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes. Alexander & Hornung is now recalling 2,320,774 pounds of meat products, with an expanded list of cooked ham and pepperoni products, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a news release. The first recall, announced Dec. 5, was for 234,391 pounds of cooked ham and pepperoni products. The meat being recalled can be identified by looking at the circular USDA mark of inspection on the label. All the recalled products carry the establishment number “EST. M10125,” the FSIS...

    **SNIP** The Times’ editorial board took issue with Sawant’s denial of the charge related to the protest at Durkan’s house. “This denial rings hollow,” the board said. “During Sawant’s onstage speech in front of Durkan’s house, she reportedly spoke critically of the ‘Richie Rich’ neighborhood. Shortly afterward, Sawant’s council Twitter account retweeted notes of gratitude ‘for speaking @MayorJenny’s rich house,’ as one put it. Curiously, those notes appear to have vanished from Sawant’s timeline.” The alternative biweekly newspaper The Stranger has a much more sympathetic view of Sawant and opposes the recall election. In a colorfully-written Nov. 17 piece, “Vote...

    Voters in Seattle’s third city council district are turning out early to cast their ballots in this month’s special election, which will determine whether Kshama Sawant, one of Seattle’s most polarizing elected officials, will remain in office. With just five days left before polls close on Tuesday, roughly 33% of voters have returned their ballot, according to King County election data. On Oct. 29 - five days before last month’s general election - roughly 20% of District 3 voters had returned their ballots. That means about 10,000 more people have voted now than at this time during the last election....

King County Elections sent out more than 76,000 ballots on Wednesday, to voters in Seattle City Council District 3, who must decide whether Councilmember Kshama Sawant should remain in office or be recalled. Only voters in District 3 - made up of Capitol Hill, the Central District, First Hill, Madison Park, Little Saigon International District, Madrona, Mount Baker, North Beacon Hill and South Lake Union - can vote in the recall.

    Hospitals in Missouri were inundated with COVID-19 patients last summer when a group opposed to a mask mandate that had already expired gathered enough signatures to trigger a recall vote against the mayor who enacted it. Now the question about Mayor Brian Steele is on the ballot Tuesday in the small city of Nixa. Meanwhile in Kansas, voters will decide whether to recall a school board member who backed a mask mandate. And in Anchorage, Alaska, a member of the city’s governing body has been targeted for removal because, according to critics, she was the 15th person at a public...

    All across the country, parents are increasingly making their voices heard on a range of subjects at school board meetings. Speaking before the Los Alamitos Unified School District Board of Education, mother Lauren Roupoli addressed her concerns about a mask mandate in what’s being described as a “fiery speech” that directly named some on the board. “We are vocal because we are our children’s biggest advocates,” Roupoli said, according to Fox News. While the meeting’s attendees applauded the speech, Marlys Davidson, the California board’s president, had a different reaction that was picked up on a hot mic: “f*** you.” She...

    A second recall effort launched against San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin demonstrates how residents are "fed up" with his progressive policies, as his push to reduce jail funding and refusal to prosecute repeat offenders ensures the streets remain marred with open-air drug dealing and violent crime now stretching into the suburbs, a leader of the prominent local police union tells Fox News. Last week, the first Republican-backed recall effort fell just 1,714 signatures short of the 51,325 required to trigger a special election to bring the question of ousting Boudin before voters. Now a second recall effort is being...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom spent the summer campaigning to keep his job and, with a landslide victory in hand, he’s continued pushing progressive California further left. In the four weeks after beating back a recall attempt, the Democrat signed laws that require gender-neutral displays of children’s toys and toothbrushes in large department stores, made it illegal to remove a condom without consent during intercourse and cleared the way for a nation’s first ban on the sale of new gas-powered leaf blowers and lawn mowers. He also made it illegal to film someone near an abortion clinic...

    On Sep. 30, King County Elections formally certified a petition seeking to recall Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant. The recall election has been scheduled for Dec. 7 and will decide whether Sawant remains in office. According to state law, an election must be held within 45 to 90 days after a petition is certified. The petition to recall Sawant accuses her of various offenses, including misusing resources of the city to promote a “Tax Amazon” ballot initiative. In June last year, Sawant let Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestors into Seattle City Hall when the building was closed due to COVID-19....
