FDA warns more dog food recalled over risk to pets and humans

Only days after the previous dog food recall, the FDA is drawing attention to another voluntary recall of dog food, this time over the risk of Salmonella contamination. The recall impacts one dog food brand and shouldn't be mistaken for the dog food recall from earlier this month, which involved the presence of a potentially deadly toxin that results from a naturally-occurring mold. As expected, dog food owners are advised to get rid of the potentially contaminated dog food to protect both their own and their pet's health.

FDA warns more thyroid drugs recalled because they’re not potent enough

On Thursday, September 17, the Food and Drug Administration brought attention to another voluntary recall of thyroid medication -- and as with the previous recall, the drugs may be too weak to properly treat those who take them.

Last week, the FDA published an advisory pointing the public to a voluntary recall from Kader Exports, which is warning consumers to throw away certain shrimp products that may be contaminated with Salmonella.
