<![CDATA[ Sunfood Recalls Organic Carob Powder Because of Possible Health Risk]]>The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding a recall for Sunfood of El Cajon, CA. On Monday, Aug. 11, Sunfood recalled its Organic Carob Powder, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Organic Carob Powder was distributed nationwide in retail stores and through mail orders.

The product comes in 1lb, 20lb & 55lb white poly bags. The following lot numbers were affected: 140321,140416,140509,140516,140609,140616 & 140623. Expiration date is 6/5/2015 and UPC Code 803813-04429 8.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by our supplier revealed the possibility of Salmonella in the above noted lot numbers.

Production of the product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue to investigate as to the source of the problem.

Consumers who have purchased the affected Organic Carob Powder are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact Sunfood at 1-888-RAWFOOD between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. (PDT).

<![CDATA[ Prepare for the School Year with Required Immunizations]]>JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services reminds parents to prepare for the upcoming school year now by getting their children's annual physical and required immunizations.

"Immunizations are proven to be one of the most successful and cost-effective ways to prevent serious diseases," said Gail Vasterling, Director of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. "Even though we're still on summer vacation, we encourage parents to make their children's immunization appointments now instead of waiting until the busy days right before school begins."

Missouri law requires children in Kindergarten through 12th grade to receive immunizations to protect against certain vaccine-preventable diseases. This helps protect everyone including students, teachers, staff and other community members.

Children attending Kindergarten through 12th grade are required to have the following immunizations or booster shots:

  • DTaP - Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis or DT - diphtheria and tetanus
  • Tdap - Tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis (required for 8th - 12th grade)
  • IPV - Polio
  • Hepatitis B
  • MMR- Measles, mumps, rubella; and
  • Varicella - Chickenpox

Getting your child immunized can be easy and inexpensive. For families with health insurance, all vaccines are usually covered.  Children age 18 and younger may be eligible to get vaccines free through the Vaccines for Children (VFC) program if they are Medicaid eligible, do not have health insurance, underinsured or are an American Indian or Alaskan Native.  Doctors can charge a fee to give each vaccine.  However, VFC program funded vaccines cannot be denied to an eligible child if the family cannot afford the fee.

Contact your health care provider to ensure your child is up to date on immunizations. For more information visit www.health.mo.gov/immunizations or contact your local public health agency.
