The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Recall of Natural Tan Tan Tofu Panda Flavor Soybean Juice

    The product is sold only in California. It comes in an opaque plastic container with no lot number or expiration date.

    The recall was initiated by the FDA after it was discovered that the peanut-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of peanuts.

    Close to 3 million Americans are allergic to peanuts or tree nuts. The main problem with a peanut allergy is the severity of the reaction. Dr. Scott Sicherer from Mount Sinai School of Medicine suggests that 80% of people with a peanut allergy have had a reaction that involves a breathing problem or experienced a reaction that affected multiple areas of their body. It’s estimated that 100 to 150 people in the USA die each year from peanut allergies.
