A look at this week’s top recalls.

180K pounds of prepacked salads recalled
A California company is recalling more than 180,000 pounds of prepackaged salads and sandwich wraps containing chicken and ham following an outbreak of E. coli-related illnesses in three states, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said.
The Food and Drug Administration found a cluster of E. coli-related illnesses in California in which patients had reported eating the ready-to-eat salads with grilled chicken. Since then, 26 patients have been identified in California, Arizona and Washington state.
The USDA said the salads and wraps were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6 by Glass Onion Catering of Richmond, California, and intended for sale in eight states. Some of the food was packaged under the name Atherstone Fine Foods.
The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service and the FDA were investigating the source of the E. coli contamination, which the USDA said was uncommon in poultry products. Consumers were told to destroy any product they had on hand.
The bacterium blamed for the illnesses, E. coli O157:H7, can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure. The USDA advised people who experience these symptoms to seek emergency medical care immediately.

Hundreds of infant cradle gliders recalled
Dream On Me Inc. is recalling hundreds of its Lullaby Cradle Gliders sold through nationwide retailers including Walmart and Toys R Us. At least two infants who were in the gliders when a support board under the mattress came loose, causing a fall hazard. Owners should call the company for a free repair kit.

Violation of federal standards prompts pajama recall
More than 1,000 sets of children’s pajamas are being recalled by BabyCottons for failing to meet minimum standards for flammability. Consumers should contact the company for a full refund and stop using the product immediately.

Wooden bunk beds recalled for guardrail problem
Wood Castle Furniture is recalling a model of its wooden bunk beds for a problem with the guardrails. No injuries have been reported. The beds were sold nationwide and cost up to $1,700. Consumers should stop using them immediately and contact the company for a free repair.
