Measles Cases Soar To 839 Amid Worst Outbreak In 25 Years 

 

The number of confirmed measles cases across the U.S. has reached 839, and the country is experiencing its worst outbreak of the disease since 1994.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Monday that the tally for the year had jumped by 75 within a single week as of May 10, and that the outbreak had affected 23 states.

The crisis is hitting New York the hardest; 66 of the new cases have been reported there, according to CNBC. Forty-one of those were reported in New York City, which in April announced mandatory vaccinations in Brooklyn and declared a public health emergency within parts of the borough.

Is nature over? Maybe 

 

I know you care. You want your children to live in a world that supports wild elephants, giraffes, rhinos, bees, pangolins ... and, of course, human life, too.

I also trust that you've heard some of the warnings -- that Earth likely is moving into the sixth mass extinction event in its history, the first one that humans are causing. Elephants could be gone from the wild in a generation. Amphibian populations already are collapsing. Climate change is warming and acidifying the oceans, threatening to annihilate coral reefs.

Perhaps you've read the very latest from a UN-affiliated group, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, or IPBES, which released on Monday a sweeping and damning report on global biodiversity. None of the themes in the report are new -- we've long known we're screwing up the natural world, which also is the human world -- but the report's findings remain alarming and profound. Especially these three figures:

• Three-quarters of the land: 75% of the planet's land surface has been "significantly altered." Three. Quarters. Relatedly, biodiversity "is declining faster than at any time in human history."

Tyson Recalls Nearly 12 Million Pounds of Chicken Strips That May Contain Metal 

 

11.8 million pounds of frozen, ready to eat chicken strips have been recalled by Tyson Foods after several customers complained that their chicken contained fragments of metal. This marks the expansion of an on-going investigation which began in March with the recall of more than 69,000 pounds, prompted by two complaints that the food contained "extraneous material."

The U.S. Department's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) issued an official statement which provides detail on the original complaints and updated recall: "The problem was discovered when FSIS received two consumer complaints of extraneous material in the chicken strip products. FSIS is now aware of six complaints during this time frame involving similar pieces of metal with three alleging oral injury. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider."

Electric scooter use results in 20 injuries per 100,000 trips, CDC finds 

 

People are getting injured while riding electric scooters. This shouldn’t come as a huge shock to anyone who has noticed the explosion of dockless, shareable two-wheelers over the last year and a half. But the degree to which people are breaking bones and sustaining head injuries is alarming public health officials who released a major study into scooter-related injuries on Thursday.

The study, which was conducted by the Public Health and Transportation departments in Austin, Texas, in association with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), identified a total of 271 people with potential scooter-related injuries from September 5th through November 30th, 2018. The study was presented by the CDC at its Epidemic Intelligence Service conference in Atlanta.

ALMOST HALF OF THE INJURED RIDERS SUSTAINED HEAD INJURIES

During the study period, there were a total of 182,333 hours of e-scooter use, 891,121 miles ridden on e-scooters, and 936,110 e-scooter trips. The research team calculated that there were 20 individuals injured per 100,000 e-scooter trips taken during the three-month period.

Measles nears record in U.S. as cases continue to soar 

 

Health officials have confirmed 71 additional cases of measles in the U.S. bringing the total number of cases in 2019 to 626. This is the second-greatest number of cases in a single year since the disease was eliminated in the United States in 2000.

The current record is the 667 cases reported during all of 2014. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that in the coming weeks, the numbers will surpass 2014 levels.

Outbreaks in New York state are driving up measles case counts. Earlier this month, New York City declared a state of emergency and ordered mandatory vaccinations in one Brooklyn neighborhood for people who may have been exposed to the virus. Just north of the city in Rockland County, cases have climbed to nearly 200 since an outbreak began in October.

There are also ongoing measles outbreaks in Washington, New Jersey, and California.

Chewy Chips Ahoy cookies recalled due to "unexpected solidified ingredient" 
 

Packages of Chewy Chips Ahoy! cookies sold at Walmart and other retailers nationwide are being recalled because they many contain an "unexpected solidified ingredient." Nabisco parent Mondelez Global issued the recall Tuesday after receiving reports of "potential adverse health effects," it said in its recall notice.

A company spokesperson said in an email to CBS MoneyWatch that cornstarch used to make the cookies sometimes did not properly mix and then solidified in the baking process.

"The vast majority of consumers have not reported adverse events with respect to the product in the four code dates recalled," the Mondelez spokesperson stated. "However, a small number of consumers have reported gagging, choking or dental injury, but none of these reports have been confirmed at this time."

E. coli outbreak sickens 72 people in 5 states, CDC says 

 

Health officials are investigating an E. coli outbreak that has sickened 72 people across five states, federal health agencies said Friday.

The reported cases were in Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said in a statement announcing the outbreak. Eight people have been hospitalized, the CDC added.

The agency is working with the Food and Drug Administration and Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service to investigate the outbreak. They have not yet pinpointed a specific food, grocery store or restaurant chain that's responsible for the infections. As a result, the CDC is not recommending people avoid a particular food.

Top health official issues new warning on rare polio-like disease 
 

One morning last fall, 4-year-old Joey Wilcox woke up with the left side of his face drooping. It was the first sign of an unfolding nightmare.

Three days later, Joey was in a hospital intensive care unit, unable to move his arms or legs or sit up. Spinal taps and other tests failed to find a cause. Doctors worried he was about to lose the ability to breathe.

"It's devastating," said his father, Jeremy Wilcox, of Herndon, Virginia. "Your healthy child can catch a cold — and then become paralyzed."

Some Anti-Vaxxers Aren't Getting Their Pets Vaccinated. Here's Why That's So Dangerous 

 

Dogs can’t get autism, and even if they could, vaccines couldn’t cause it. Period. But some anti-vaxxers are increasingly making the same unfounded claims about pets and vaccines they’ve been repeating about children and vaccines for the past 20 years: that vaccines are unnecessary, dangerous and that they can cause a form of (canine) autism, along with other diseases. Just as with kids, that may be driving down pet vaccination rates. And the movement, while niche, shows no sign of stopping; in some states in the U.S., anti-vax activists have recently agitated to make state laws about mandatory pet vaccinations more lax.

Nectarines, peaches, plums recalled over possible listeria contamination 
 

Thousands of pieces of fruit have been recalled in 18 states because they may be contaminated with the harmful bacteria listeria, the Food and Drug Administration announced. New York-based Jac. Vandenberg, Inc. issued the recall for some of its nectarines, peaches and plums.

The company found listeria monocytogenes on some finished products through routine sampling, the FDA said. No illnesses have been reported.

The bacteria "can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," the FDA said in its announcement. A listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women, according to the agency.

Gold Medal flour recalled over salmonella fears 
 

General Mills says it is voluntarily recalling 5-pound bags of Gold Medal Unbleached Flour nationwide due to concerns they might be contaminated with salmonella. The Minneapolis-based food giant says only bags with a "better if used by" date of April 20, 2020 are involved.

The callback was instituted after sampling of the five-pound bags discovered "the potential presence" of the bacteria, General Mills said in a statement. They added, "This recall is being issued out of an abundance of care as General Mills has not received any direct consumer reports of confirmed illnesses related to this product."
