Associated Press

The following recalls have been announced:

“About 10,000 Yerf-Dog Go-Karts, manufactured by FF Acquisition Wheeled Goods Corp., because the suspension assembly can crack and cause the rider to lose control. The company has received at least five reports of riders losing control, which have led to bruises and head and back injuries. Yerf-Dog dealers nationwide sold the one- and two-seater Spiderbox models from July 2004 to May 2005. For more information, call the company at 800-683-0072 or visit http://www.yerf-dog.com or http://www.cpsc.gov.

“ A total of 13,455 pounds of frozen chicken and sausage gumbo, made by Abe’s Cajun Boudin Inc., because the gumbo may contain undeclared shrimp, which can cause a severe reaction in those allergic to them. The recall affects the 9-pound cases and 12-ounce packages of Tony Chachere’s Creole Style Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. The gumbo was distributed to retail stores in Arkansas, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas between June 22, 2004, and March 31, 2005. For more information, call the company at 337-477-9296 or visit http://www.fsis.usda.gov/
