The following recalls have been announced:

· About 2,000 Beco Baby Butterfly carriers, made in the United States and Dominican Republic by Beco Baby Carrier Inc., because the buckles on the carrier's shoulder straps can unexpectedly release tension. This can cause the strap to slip through, posing a fall hazard to the baby.

Beco has received eight reports of the carrier straps slipping through the shoulder buckles. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled baby carriers were sold at specialty stores nationwide and on the Internet in January and February.

· WhiteWave Foods Co. is recalling about 120,000 bottles of Silk Soymilk Chocolate Flavor because they might contain undeclared milk protein, which could cause a severe or life-threatening reaction in people who have milk protein allergies.

Four people have had allergic reactions to the product and now are recovering.

The recalled 11-ounce single-serve bottles, which were distributed nationwide, have a use-by date of May 7 this year.


For information, call 1-800-587-2259.

· KG Enterprises LLC is recalling Maxidus supplements because they might contain active ingredients of FDA-regulated erectile dysfunction drugs that are not declared on the packaging.

Samples of the Maxidus supplements contained sildenafil and tadalafil, which could interact with nitrates found in some prescription drugs for diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease. If the active drug ingredients interact with nitrates, it could cause blood pressure to drop to dangerous levels.

The pills were sold online and via mail order through December 2007. They were sold in 10-capsule blister packs inside gold boxes.

For information, call 1-866-373-2488.
