Although most foods and products are safe, some edibles and items slip through the cracks and when they do, it’s good to be aware so you can fix or avoid them.

Here’s a list of products with recall notices.

Compliments brand Broccoli Slaw

Sobeys Inc. is recalling its Compliments-brand Broccoli Slaw due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Food contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms include vomiting, nausea, persistent fever, muscle aches, severe headache and neck stiffness. Consumers are strongly urged not to eat this product, and contact a doctor if they think this product has made them sick.

Golden Buffalo brand Pineapple Cake and Green Tea Cake

These cakes has been recalled for containing milk and/or egg ingredients which are not declared on the label. People with milk/egg allergies should avoid eating either of these products.

Woodmate Stain from Peintures MF Inc.

The label on this product is missing some symbols and warnings that are required to be placed on the containers of consumer chemical products. The lack of the required warnings could lead to improper use of the product and present a flammability hazard leading to serious injury or fire. Materials used with the products, such as rags, may spontaneously self-ignite, even with no source of ignition like a spark or flame.

Sabra brand Hummus Products

As with the broccoli slaw listed above, many of the hummus products from Sabra are being recalled due to possible Listeria monocytogenes contamination. Consumers should avoid eating these products, and contact a doctor if necessary.

Toyota Sienna

Toyota has issued a recall on its 2011 Sienna model due to a potential issue with its power sliding doors. Under certain conditions which impede the opening of the door (such as if the door becomes frozen with ice), the sliding door motor could stall when the door is operated. If the motor stalls, high current in the door motor circuit could be generated, operating the circuit protection for the door motor. If this occurs with the sliding door latch mechanism in an unlatched position, the door could open while driving, increasing the risk of injury to a vehicle occupant.
