Weather Alert: Widespread Frost, Hard Freeze

List of Recalls Includes Cups and Candles

Knoxville (WVLT) – There are several new recalls to pass along.

Pot Pies:

We have a warning about some pot pies that haven’t yet been recalled.

Several state health departments are telling ConAgra’s Foods that their Banquet Pot Pies may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Health departments say if they are not cooked properly, people may get sick.

Salmonella is most often caused by undercooked eggs and chicken.

Earlier this year the company had to recall all of its peanut butter because it was linked to a salmonella outbreak.

Starbucks Kids Cups:

Starbucks is recalling a quarter million children’s plastic cups that were made in China.

According to the company officials, if the cup falls, it can break into small, sharp pieces that can pose a choking or laceration hazard to your child.

The cups were sold at Starbucks nationwide from May 2006 through August 2007.

Candles:

Christmas may be a few months away, but we have a recall concerning sequin glitter candles sold at Christmas tree shops nationwide.

The candles are made in China

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the exterior glitter coatings on about 9,600 candles can ignite, posing a fire hazard.

They were sold in November and December of 2006.

Lithonia Lighting Fixtures:

About 50,000 Lithonia Lighting Nickel End Wrap Fluorescent ceiling lights could shock you due to a loose wire inside.

Made in China, the lights were sold exclusively at Home Depot stores this summer from June to August.

If you have a Toshiba AC adapter that came with your portable DVD player, an important warning tonight.

The adapters can fail, causing the player to overheat and possibly burn you.
