Walmart recalls aromatherapy spray that contained deadly bacteria

wtop.com

Walmart is recalling an aromatherapy room spray that contained a dangerous bacteria, which can cause a fatal health condition, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.

The retailer is recalling 3,900 bottles of the Better Homes and Gardens-branded essential oil infused aromatherapy room spray with gemstones. The spray bottles could contain Burkholderia pseudomallei bacteria, which can cause a condition called Melioidosis.

According to the CPSC, Melioidosis can be difficult to diagnose and can be fatal. Melioidosis is a rare but serious disease in the United States, with about 12 cases reported annually, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The CDC conducted tests on the product and investigated four confirmed cases of Melioidosis, including two fatal cases, in the United States. Though the source of these four infections has not been confirmed by CDC, the CPSC said the bottle with the same type of bacteria was found in the home of one of the individuals who died.

The $4 aromatherapy room spray was sold at about 55 Walmart stores nationwide and online at walmart.com from February 2021 through October 2021.

The bottle has “Better Homes and Gardens Aromatherapy” printed on the label on the front of the 5-ounce glass bottle.

Consumers should stop using the recalled product immediately and are advised to not open the bottle or dispose of it themselves but to return it to Walmart in a clear zip-top double bag for a full refund.

Consumers are also advised to seek medical care if they have used the product within the last 21 days and experience fever or other symptoms.

Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF and Good News Friyay

Fiction Favorites

It is Friday again, and we are so grateful that we didn’t miss it. Today is also Good News Friyay, and we have two stories.

The first story is about the preliminary test of the Boyan Slat ‘Jenny’ Ocean clean-up system.

Boyan Slat’s team removed 20,000 pounds of plastic debris from one of the significant “plastic islands” in the Pacific on the first trial of his System 002 nicknamed “Jenny.” It is a system where two boats pull a  u-shaped collection device. (pictured) “The Great Pacific Garbage Patch can now be cleaned,” announced Dutch entrepreneur Boyan Slat, the wunderkind inventor who’s spent a decade inventing systems for waterborne litter collection. This means the 1.4 trillion pieces of plastic down to 1mm in size can be removed from the oceans by 2040.

Chuck Norris asks if the Chinese military is playing biological warfare games

October 18, 2021

In nine seasons as“Walker, Texas Ranger,”I investigated hundreds and hundreds of crimes. If I were still filming the show, this crime would take the cake.

Despite being 18 months into the coronavirus pandemic, we the people still don’t know the origins of it. But I don’t believe for a minute someone in the U.S. government doesn’t know. It’s high time for Mr. Biden and other U.S. officials to come clean and settle this matter with the American public.

Most discussions regarding the origins of the coronavirus center around China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology, which is strangely and highly protected by theU.S. Centers for Disease Control and Preventionas well as theWorld Health Organization.

Speculations about the inception of SARS-CoV-2 at the Wuhan lab are well founded and documented. Here are…

Highly Processed Foods may Harm Memory

Chemical Free Life

Highly processed foods are filled with questionable synthetic and industrialized additives that have been linked in scientific studies with a variety of serious health problems. Now new scientific research results indicate that eating a diet of highly processed foods may be harmful to memory–especially as we age.  Just four weeks on a diet of highly processed food led to a strong inflammatory response in the brains of aging rats that was accompanied by behavioral signs of memory loss, the new study has found.

.

Study overview

The research team randomly assigned 3-month-old and 24-month-old male rats to their normal chow (32% calories from protein, 54% from wheat-based complex carbs and 14% from fat), a highly processed diet (19.6% of calories from protein, 63.3% from refined carbs — cornstarch, maltodextrin and sucrose — and 17.1% from fat), or the same processed diet supplemented with DHA.

The study diet mimicked ready-to-eat human…

You have a brief romance, then a break-up. But the short-lived romance does not end there.

Revealing photos of you appear online. You find yourself locked out of your Facebook account. Then the password to your bank account is changed, without your knowledge.

And that is only the beginning.

Next your ex claims that you have been stalking him. To prove it, he points to threatening texts and emails on his phone you did not actually send. The court issues him a protective order.

Now, the situation really escalates. Your one-time boyfriend reports that you violated the protective order, though you did not. You find yourself arrested.

If all this seems farfetched, think again [1].

Not only is technology being used to embarrass and frighten [2]. Electronic communication…
