People should not eat food that could be contaminated with Salmonella because they could become ill.

In people who have a weak immune system, the very old, and the very young, there is a risk that the infection could become serious and sometimes can be fatal.

(Best Syndication News) - The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the voluntary recall of Daniella brand Mangoes because they may have been contaminated with Salmonella.

The outbreak started in early July and 37 percent of these infected people have been hospitalized. So far, no people have died from the outbreak.

(Best Syndication News) - The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is concerned that neti pots and nasal irrigation kits may be incorrectly used placing the user at risk for serious infections.

Neti pots use a salt-water based liquid to irrigate the nasal passages. The pots look similar to a tiny teapot. The neti pot idea of irrigating the nose to clear mucus and congestion dates all the way back to ancient Hindus.

If the neti pot is used correctly, it could be helpful. However, the FDA is concerned about infection from products that irrigate the nasal passage ways, including neti pots. Other products might be dangerous if improperly used include bulb syringes, squeeze bottles, and battery-run water pulsating devices.
