A ready-to-eat food item and consumer products are among recent recalls from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The inspection service announced Tuesday that Sahlen Packing Co. Inc. is recalling about 13,224 pounds of ready-to-eat deli ham products that may contain plastic. The deli ham items were produced on Jan. 25 and were shipped to retail locations in Pennsylvania, as well as New York and other states in the Northeast.
The affected products are varying weights of whole hams sliced and sold by weight at retail deli counters with labels containing “Market 32 by Price Chopper Black Forest Ham with natural juices and caramel color added, 97 percent fat free.” The ham has a sell by date of April 8 on the label.
The problem was discovered on Feb. 22 when the company received a complaint of extraneous material in a ham product that was produced for retail deli slicing.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported that two items pose burn hazards.
Harbor Freight Tools independently recalled its 80 Lumen 12-volt rechargeable flashlight on Jan. 23, though the commission only reported it Wednesday due to the partial government shutdown.
According to the commission, the flashlight can overheat while charging, posing a burn hazard. The company has received two reports of the flashlight overheating, though no reports of injury.
Consumers should immediately stop using the flashlights and return them to any Harbor Freight Tools location for a refund in the form a gift card. For more information, call the company at 800-444-3353 or email email@example.com.
The commission also announced Wednesday Harbor Freight Tools’ recall of its Greenwood propane torch. The commission said the trigger on the torch that engages the flame can fail to disengage when the trigger is no longer pressed, posing a burn hazard.
The company has received two reports of the trigger failing to disengage, including one report of a burn injury. The torch was sold in stores and online from November 2013 to October.
Consumers should stop using the recalled torches and return them to any Harbor Freight Tools location for a free replacement propane torch.
The commission also announced that JumpSport is warning consumers about its half-fold fitness mini-trampolines. The commission said the folding trampoline’s frame can forcefully hit the user, posing an injury hazard.
The trampolines were sold online at Amazon, Costco and JumpSport, as well as at specialty fitness stores.
JumpSport has a new instruction manual and warning materials on its website at www.jumpsport.com, and the company said users should read the new instructions before using it or attempting to fold it.
