‘The recall is due to potential microbial (Salmonella) contamination,’ FSA said.

‘Consumers should not eat this product. Any consumers concerned about their health should seek medical advice and should return the products to the place of purchase for a full refund.’

If consumed, salmonella or microbial contamination can cause severe illness including nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, diarrhea, fever, chills, headaches and even blood in the stool.

Cross contamination from raw meat, poultry or eggs is often the cause of the infection.

The potentially contaminated goods have been on the shelves nationwide at Coles, Woolworths, IGAs, 7-Eleven, Independent Kosher stores and Milk bars.

The affected products were made in Israel.

Meanwhile, Toyota and Lexus have been forced to recall almost 18,000 vehicles produced between March 2021 and April 2022 for a potentially fatal safety issue.

The vehicles affected are the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, Kluger Hybrid, LandCruiser 300 Series, Lexus LX luxury 4WD and NX450h plug-in hybrid.

The recall notice says: ‘Under particular circumstances, a software error may cause the Vehicle Stability Control system (VSC) to not default to the ‘ON’ status when the vehicle is next started. 

Toyota Australia has today announced that it will initiate a safety recall involving Toyota Kluger Hybrid, RAV4 Hybrid, LandCruiser 300 vehicles produced between March 2021 - April 2022

‘These circumstances are: if the VSC switch is manually turned off and the brake pedal is continuously operated between when the vehicle is shut down and then restarted; this may cause the VSC to not return to the default setting ‘ON’ status at the next ignition cycle. 

‘This results in a non-compliance with Australian Design Rules (ADR) 88/00.’

Toyota Australia will advise all owners of involved vehicles details of this safety recall campaign by SMS, email and mail to their last known address and mobile phone number. 

Earlier in the week, Bunnings Australia recalled one of its most popular gardening tools after a malfunction injured several people while using it.

The warehouse giant has pulled the Ozito Portable Electric Blower model off its shelves and urged customers to stop using it after a defect gave users an electric shock.

Electric blowers, initially designed to clear away leaves around the home, are now one of Australia’s most popular and practical power tools. They can be used to clean cars, caravans, tents and boats, and also to blow up air mattresses and other inflatables, such as stand-up paddle boards and canoes. 

The Ozito Portable Electric Blower model has been pulled off Bunnings shelves after a defect caused the blower to break during use and rupture the casing, giving access to live parts and releasing sharp objects at high speed

The $59 tool is at the cheaper end of the department store’s blower range, which can cost up to $600. 

The Ozito can break during use and rupture the casing giving access to live parts and releasing sharp objects at high speed. 

Bunnings said several people have already been injured by the malfunction and all customers who have the tool should immediately stop using it.

Numerous batches of the product are affected by the malfunction, with Bunnings advising consumers to check the batch number located near the tool’s air intake vent. 

The Ozito tool was sold in Bunnings stores across the country. Individuals are urged to contact Ozito for a replacement blower or a full refund. 

Bunnings said the malfunction had already injured several people. Customers who have bought the tool should stop using it immediately and contact Ozito for a replacement blower or a full refund
