RECALL ROUNDUP: Federal regulators recall fruits, children’s pain medication, Hy-Vee turkey gravy and helium tanks



Peaches, plums and nectarines made by HMC Farms have been recalled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention due to a listeria outbreak.

Federal Health Regulators say the fruits are linked to an outbreak in seven states, including California, Kansas, Colorado, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio and Florida.

The CDC has reported, 11 illnesses, 10 hospitalizations and one death. After doing a test, the CDC says it found listeria in one of the company's peaches.

Symptoms of listeria include fever, muscle aches, vomiting and diarrhea.

According to HMC Farms, the affected fruits were sold between May 1 and Nov. 15 of this year and the same period last year.

The CDC says consumers should throw away the fruits and clean surfaces and containers the fruits may have touched.

Kinder Farms Children's Pain Medicine

Kinder Farms has voluntarily recalled its KinderMed Infant Pain and Fever medication and its KinderMed Kid's Pain and Fever medicine.

The company says acetaminophen is at unknown levels in the mediation.

The Food and Drug Administration says it can lead to adverse health effects like abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes.

The affected medication was sold nationwide at pharmacies, grocery stores and online. If you have these medications the FDA says, you should throw them away or return them for a full refund.

Kinder Farms says the recall is out of an abundance of caution and no illnesses have been reported.

Zline Gas Stoves oven compartments

Zline, a home appliance company has expanded its recall of its gas stoves due to issues with the oven compartment.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the oven compartments are putting consumers at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

According to the FDA, symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are headache, dizziness, weakness, upset stomach, vomiting, chest pain and confusion.

Those exposed to high levels of carbon monoxide can pass out. Exposure could be fatal.

The recall is for about 30,000 stoves sold nationwide, in-store and online between February 2019 and December 2022.

Zline says to contact them for a free in-home repair but in the meantime, you can still safely use the stovetop.

Balloon Time mini helium tanks

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled about 121,000 Balloon Time helium tanks because of an injury hazard.

Safety experts say compressed helium from the tank can escape and cause the plastic cap to be released into the air unexpectedly, which can cause projectiles to hit bystanders.

To avoid this, CPSC says, consumers should carefully remove the cap and point it away from themselves and others around them. Consumers should then release all the helium in a well-ventilated area.

To get a full refund, CPSC says to write "Recalled" on the front of the product in a non-erasable marker. Then, consumers should upload a photo of the can and a refund will be submitted.

The affected tanks were sold at stores nationwide and online from April to October of this year.

Hy-Vee's turkey gravy

Hy-Vee has issued a recall of its 12 oz. jars of turkey gravy because they're mislabeled.

The grocery store chain says the jars of turkey gravy are actually beef gravy instead. The company says the jars could also have a potential soy allergen not listed on the label.

Consumers who bought this gravy can return it to Hy-Vee for a full refund.
