“This past Friday, I went to urgent care in pain. I had on and off pain since last Monday and couldn't take it anymore. I couldn’t stand I was holding my stomach and decided it was time to get checked. It was hard being in the room by myself, I was hooked up to an IV, blood drawn then had an EKG and... See Morect scan. Doctor trying to see what was wrong. Everything was else normal but my white cell count leading him to bacteria and ct scan with my intestine. Turns out I had apparently ate bad food. I didn’t know how that was possible because my family and I all eat the same food and even when we do take out, we stick in the oven just to heat it up again to kill off any bacteria before we eat it. We started doing that in the beginning of COVID to be extra careful. Except for that one time that I went there for lunch and ate an organic turkey wrap. That was on a Sunday after church and then the next day on Monday my stomach was hurting but I didn’t put it together. All last week I had on and off stomach pain and a bit of nausea but when the pain didn’t go away I knew it was time to go to see a doctor. When I told him about the turkey wrap I ate and pain starting the next day he said it could be because deli meat. It is common at restaurants such as this to get food poisoning because of the storage of their deli meat. I have 5 prescriptions to take for the next 7 days Antibiotics, pain meds and nausea. So no more this for me! See Less

“Company name: Rise Baking Company LLC
Brand name: Harris Teeter, Dawn Food Products
Product recalled: Cookies and Cream Cake, Vanilla Bean Waterfall Cake
Reason of the recall: Due to undeclared hazelnut
FDA Recall date: March 31, 2021
Recall details: Company Announcement Rise Baking Company of... See MoreYork, PA is recalling its Harris Teeter Brand 8” 3-layer Cookies and Creme Cake and Dawn Food Products Brand 7” 2-layer Vanilla Bean Waterfall Cake due to incorrect allergen labeling on the product. The product label does not list Hazelnut, and Hazelnuts are present in the product. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to Hazelnuts run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the product.

The recalled cakes were distributed nationwide in retail stores. Cookies and Creme Cake is sold in a 48 oz, clear plastic package. Retail stores place Use By Date on the package. The affected cakes are marked on the top with the following lot numbers:

- Y0356 2 | 1001686863
- YOR 1007 1 | 1001718406
- YOR 1034 1 | 1001755913
- YOR 1034 1 | 1001755914
- YOR 1035 1 | 1001755914

Vanilla Bean Waterfall Cake is sold in a 35 oz, clear plastic package. Retail stores place Use By Date on the package. The affected cakes are marked on the top with the following lot numbers:

- Y0189 1 | 1001552111
- Y0230 1 | 1001586399

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this issue.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered the cakes were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of Hazelnuts. Subsequent investigation indicates a change in raw material under previous production ownership that was not introduced into the company’s ingredient review process.

Production of these cakes has been suspended until further notice to ensure the issue is properly resolved.

Consumers who have purchased these cakes are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Ken McCloud, Senior Director of Quality Assurance at 715- 426-2090. Call between 8 AM – 4 PM CDT.

“Company name: Real Water, Inc.
Brand name: Real Water
Product recalled: Water and Water Concentrate
Reason of the recall: Product may be linked to instances of non-viral hepatitis
FDA Recall date: March 24, 2021
Recall details: Real Water, Inc. of Mesa, AZ and Henderson, NV, has issued a volunt... See Moreary recall of all sizes of its Real Water brand drinking water, because it may be linked to certain instances of non-viral hepatitis which were reported in or about November, 2020 in the Las Vegas, NV area. Symptoms of all types of hepatitis, including non-viral hepatitis, are similar and can include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay or gray-colored bowel movements, joint pain, yellow eyes, and jaundice. Those experiencing these symptoms should contact their doctor.

Recalled products include 1.5 liters, 1 liter, 500 ml and 1 gallon ready-to-drink bottles that were distributed throughout the United States by UNFI and KEHE to the natural channel of stores, as well as through direct distribution to various retail stores on a regional basis in the greater Las Vegas, NV area, Northern Arizona, Southern California, Tennessee, Georgia, Chicago, New York, Mississippi, and New Mexico. Real Water is also sold on Amazon.com. 

In addition, 5-gallon home and office delivery bottles were distributed through direct delivery to homes and offices in the greater Las Vegas, NV area, central California coastal region (North of Los Angeles, CA and South from Santa Barbara, CA), and Phoenix, AZ.  Also included in the recall are the 4 oz bottles of Real Water Concentrate, sold on the Firm’s website. The ready-to-drink bottles sold in retail stores have a blue rectangular bottle with “Real Alkalized Water” printed on the label. 5-Gallon home and office delivery bottles are blue with white labels.

Distributors have been notified of the recall and instructed to immediately remove recalled products from all store shelves, distribution, and other inventories to ensure they are no longer available for sale or consumption. Home and office delivery customers have also been instructed how to have products picked up.

The recall is the result of an investigation by the Southern Nevada Health District and the FDA after reported cases of non-viral hepatitis in or about November 2020 were suspected to be potentially linked to Real Water’s 5-gallon Home and Office Delivery.  Real Water takes customer safety seriously and promptly issued this recall on March 17, 2021 after being notified of the investigation.

The company has ceased production and distribution of the product as the FDA and the company continue their investigations into the potential cause of the problem. Consumers who may have recalled products should discard it immediately and not drink it. 

Customers of Real Water’s 5-gallon Home and Office Delivery should contact Real Water at the number or email below to have any remaining product picked up. Consumers who have purchased Real Water ready-to-drink bottles may return it to the place of purchase for refund. Consumers with questions, or to obtain a refund, may contact the company at 1-702-310-5437 on Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time or by email at customerservice@drinkrealwater.com.
