Latest product recalls


Frozen beef patties

Local health officials have issued a warning about frozen beef patties sold through Sam's Club. The food could possibly be infected with e-coli.

The New Hanover County health department advises to check your freezer to see whether you have any Cargill-made beef patties.

Two children in Orange and Durham Counties fell ill after eating contaminated meat.

The company has recalled American Chef's selection Angus beef patties, six-pound boxes. Each package bears a case code 7703100.


There are concerns about high levels of lead in popular brands of lipstick.

A consumer group called "Campaign for Safe Cosmetics" found lead in half of the 33 brand names of lipstick tested, including those made by L'oreal, Cover Girl and Christian Dior.

So far there's no federal standard for acceptable lead levels in lipstick.

Winnie the Pooh

JC Penney is recalling 49,000 deluxe Winnie-the-Pooh play sets.

The recall comes after concerns of excessive amounts of lead paint were found in the Chinese-made toys.

The toys have been on sale nationwide since August of 2005.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging parents to bring the play set back for a full refund.
