Samsung Recalls 2.8 Million Top-Load Washing Machines
November 4, 20162:49 PM ET
Alina Selyukh

Samsung is offering repairs, refunds and replacements for about 2.8 million top-load washers after receiving hundreds of reports of machines vibrating excessively — in some cases, so much that the lids became detached.

The consumer electronics company, still reeling from a total recall and halt of its Galaxy Note 7 phone, is recalling 34 models of its top-load washing machines, manufactured as far back as March 2011. (Front-load washers are not affected by the recall.)

Tens of thousands of EpiPens recalled for faulty mechanism

March 21, 2017

More than 80,000 EpiPens are being recalled across multiple countries because they might fail to work in an emergency, the company announced this week.

The devices included in the recall were distributed in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and a variety of European countries, but not in the United States, said a spokesperson for Mylan, the company that markets the device.

["There has been a recall by the FDA, Food Safety and CDC that reports all varieties of Onions other than Red Onions that are being recalled due to Salmonella Poisoning and symptoms may show within a couple of hours to seven days. These onions were manufactured in Canada and shipped to Bakersfield California and than distributed to 34 states according to the FDA. The FDA states that the brand of onions are from Thomson International."]

[" Red Onions appear to be the culprit. However, White and sweet onions may be contaminated with Salmonella as well. The recall involves 34 states, including Pennsylvania! According to the FDA, Salmonella contamination from red onions has sickened about an estimated 300 people and has hospitalized 59. This recall was posted on the FDA and CDC just last night around 8:00 Pm."]

This concerns me since I ate hot dogs with sweet onions around the time of the recall that contained raw sweet onions but not the red onion thankfully! I hope my husband and I are in the clear and we are waiting a week to see of anything happens. It's mostly the red onions that are a concern but the FDA is recalling all varieties for safety reasons. I am not sure where our sweet onion came from so my husband is going to check the labels tomorrow at the store we purchased the onion from to ensure we did not purchase a contaminated one. The labels and brands are listed on the site through the link I just posted.

I have an update already. I was able to locate our local grocery store online and the onions are labeled Simply sweet from PA and are not part of the recall. Whew! My husband and I can relax.

Howdy Tina!
It's important to note the brands and areas affected by recalls, so thank you for the heads up :cool:
Not every one is as aware of recalls that may lurk in the fridge or pantry.

Most of the time, recalls are removed from store shelves right away, but a voluntary recall makes me respect a brand more because caution is used.

Your right RT. The affected items are normally removed immediately but not always. There were 300 people sickened and 50 hospitalized already by the contaminated onions.

In addition to this post the safest stores to shop would be your local grocery store that is not widely available in other areas. I tend to steer clear of large grocery chains that link to foreign sources of distribution and shipment. For instance, Krogers is a large chain that consist of various foods that are persistently recalled almost on a daily basis and is one of the worst regarding recalls. Walmart would be another example that receives shipments from sources outside of the United States and is considered a very large chain since it is widely available in all states, including locations outside of the US. Your chances of food poisoning increases when you shop at large grocery store chains.

I've moved the thread to the existing thread for Important recalls.

CDC that reports all varieties of Onions other than Red Onions that are being recalled due to Salmonella Poisoning
The article must have been revised then because it clearly states red onions are included.
These onions were manufactured in Canada
How does one manufacture onions? :D

Where do you get the information that they came from Canada Tina? In the article you link to they state:
Thomson International Inc. of Bakersfield, California is recalling Red, Yellow, White, and Sweet Yellow Onions shipped from May 1, 2020 through the present.

Onionswere distributed to wholesalers, restaurants, and retail stores in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Canada.
Here is a Canadian link stating the onions were grown in the US and imported to Canada:

Thanks Karen, I didn't know there was a thread called "Important Recalls." Next time I will search the forum for any topics that already exist.
