Recall watch: Sprout mix, scuba regulators among pulled products

June 26, 2018

Scuba regulators yanked for drowning hazard

Huish Outdoors is recalling 4,500 Oceanic and Hollis scuba diving regulators sold in the United States because the regulators can restrict airflow at low tank pressures, posing a drowning hazard to divers.

The metal regulator attaches to the scuba tank valve and controls the pressure of the air a diver breathes. No incidents or injuries have been reported to date. A full list of the part numbers and UPC numbers of the recalled products is available at https://bit.ly/2Irzeej.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled scuba diving regulators and contact a local Oceanic or Hollis dealer for a free repair.

Sprouting mix may have Salmonella

NOW Health Group Inc. of Bloomingdale, Ill., is recalling its NOW Real Food Zesty Sprouting Mix because its primary ingredient, crimson clover seeds, may be contaminated with salmonella.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems.

Approximately 10,000 units of Zesty Sprouting Mix were distributed online and in retail stores nationwide since December 2017. The recalled mix has product code 7271, and lot number 3031259 or 3038165.

No other products are affected or are involved in the recall. No illnesses have been reported to date.

Evidence of potential contamination was implicated in ongoing federal investigations into multistate outbreaks of salmonella infections, of which the clover seed supplier was notified.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled Zesty Sprouting Mix should stop using the product immediately and return it to place of purchase for a full refund. Receipt is not required for refund.

Contact NOW’s Customer Service Department at 888-669-3663.
