Massachusetts Department Of Health In Spotlight After Meningitis Outbreak.

Many people are questioning the management of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (“DPH”) following a meningitis outbreak caused by vials of pain medication produced at a pharmaceutical company in Framingham, MA. 

The meningitis outbreak, which was caused by the presence of a toxic fungus in the medication, has resulted in numerous deaths and hundreds of infections throughout Massachusetts.

The DPH is an $881 million, 2,292 employee agency that is responsible for screening drug samples produced in the state.

Despite its large size, staffing levels and funding at DPH have dropped sharply since 2009.  The DPH now claims that it is simply not able to effectively monitor all parts of the always growing pharmaceutical industry.

Kubota Off-Road Vehicles Recalled Due To Carbon Monoxide Risk.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) announced on October 2, 2012 Kubota’s voluntary recall of its RTV500 off-road utility vehicles. 

The CPSC reported that carbon monoxide can accumulate in the vehicle’s cab while the engine is idling, resulting in potential carbon monoxide poisoning.

Kubota, which is based in Gainesville, Georgia, has received two complaints of personal injuries related to the issue.

The affected vehicles were sold from September 2008 through April 2012 at Kubota dealers nationwide.  Kubota estimates that 970 vehicles are affected by the recall.

Kubota is asking its customers to contact the company to have their vehicle repaired free of charge.

Salmonella Outbreak at Trader Joe’s Sparks Product Recall.

Sunland Inc., a food product company based in New Mexico, recently recalled over 75 types of peanut butter and almond butter after the company’s products were identified as the cause of a salmonella outbreak at Trader Joe’s grocery stores.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) linked Sunland’s products to 29 salmonella illnesses spread across 18 states.

Sunland produces numerous products under various brand names, including a Trader Joe’s brand it manufactures and packages called Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter. That product was the cause of the salmonella outbreak.

Sunland elected to recall its other peanut butter and almond butter products, as well, because they were manufactured with the same equipment as the Trader Joe’s Creamy Salted Valencia Peanut Butter. None of Sunland’s other products have yet been linked to cases of salmonella.
