Recalled Quaker Oats products

(CNS): The Quaker Oats Company has recalled a number of products due to potential contamination with salmonella, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. The latest list of possibly contaminated products has been added to a previous list.

According to a release from Quaker, healthy people infected with salmonella can experience fever, diarrhoea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis. 

Products listed on this website were produced in the United States. Only the products listed below were distributed to the Cayman Islands, and Quaker urged consumers to check their pantries for any of the listed products and discard them.

    🥤Is iced slushy drink with glycerol sold in Cayman?

    I’ve never seen any public health warnings on these drinks, they are made and aimed at children.

    Boy, 4, becomes second youngster in weeks to collapse and almost die after consuming an iced slushy drink

    The Food Standard Agency (FSA) issued new voluntary industry guidance on glycerol in slush-ice drinks in August 2023, advising that they should not be sold to children four years of age and under.

    At very high levels of exposure, glycerol intoxication can cause shock, hypoglycaemia and loss of consciousness, according to the government body.

    a colorless, sweet, viscous liquid formed as a byproduct in soap manufacture. It is used as an emollient and laxative, and for making explosives and antifreeze.

    Do you like your drink with glycerol or without?

      I buy artisan cookies, biscotti etc. from Italy, only a few ingredients: Eggs, flour, cranberries, baking powder, butter, honey, ammonium bicarbonate. This is the safest on market, unless you bake at home. $15 per 8.8/ozbox.

    Thank you Quaker Oats for having the sand to come forward and warn everyone, and thank you CNS for detailing this very important story; it isn’t exciting, but quite possibly affecting a great many of us.

    There are millions of brand new 2021-2024 PHEVs, some of which ply our roads, and haul tourists, that find themselves under NHTSA recall for fire risk. With notes like, “Customers are advised to refrain from recharging these vehicles and not to park them inside buildings or structures (garages), or near other vehicles, homes, or people, until the vehicle has had the final repair completed” (and in many cases a solution is still TBD). Silence from Jay Ebanks on that. Is it possible he didn’t get the memo?
