Nutek Disposables, Inc. Issues Alert Due to Potential Bacteria in Baby Wipes Oct 25, 2014 03:24PM

MCELHATTAN, Pa., Oct. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Nutek Disposables, Inc. of McElhattan, PA has initiated a nationwide voluntary product recall at the retail level of all lots of baby wipes that it manufactured under the brand names Cuties, Diapers.com, Femtex, Fred's, Kidgets, Member's Mark, Simply Right, Sunny Smiles, Tender Touch, and Well Beginnings, because some packages may contain bacteria.  These wipes were distributed by Nutek prior to October 21, 2014 to the following retail stores:  Walgreens, Sam's Club, Family Dollar, Fred's, and Diapers.com.

After receiving a small number of complaints of odor and discoloration, Nutek conducted microbial testing that showed the presence of a bacteria, called Burkholderia cepacia (B. cepacia), in some of these products.  Soon after, on October 3, 2014 the company initiated a voluntary withdrawal of lots that had tested positive for the bacteria, as well as other baby wipes in the surrounding time frame.  After some additional lots were tested, as a precautionary measure, Nutek believed it was a prudent decision to withdraw all its baby wipe products. 

B. cepacia poses little medical risk to healthy people.  However, people who have certain health problems like weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis, may be more susceptible to infections with B. cepacia.  If you believe you have a weakened immune system or chronic lung disease and you have used one of the affected wipe products, you should call your doctor promptly for medical advice.

As of October 3, 2014, the date of the original withdrawal, the company had received only one report of irritation.  Numerous reports of complaints have since been received by the company that include rash, irritation, infections, fever, gastro-intestinal issues, and respiratory issues, though these reports have not been confirmed to be related to the use of these products.

The company has not identified the cause of the problem, but is continuing to investigate.  In the interim, Nutek has stopped shipping baby wipes manufactured at the facility. 

Nutek takes the safety of consumers and the quality of its products very seriously and is taking all appropriate steps to address the issue and ensure this does not happen again.

The company is working with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the affected retailers and distributors throughout this process to address the issue.

Consumers who have purchased this product can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.  Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-855-646-4351, Monday through Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM EDT.

Bring the Statue Home: Penn State Coach Joe Paterno Immortalized in Limited Edition Figurine Oct 25, 2014 03:00PM

READING, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/25/14 -- Alumni, fans and supporters of Joe Paterno ("JoePa"), Penn State's winningest head coach for an unprecedented 45 years, can now celebrate his legacy with a limited edition figurine of JoePa. Reminiscent of the iconic statue that once drew crowds at Penn State's Beaver Stadium, the figurine portrays JoePa in his familiar pose with his trousers rolled up and hand in the air, charging onto the field. Created by artist Angelo Di Maria, who designed the original Beaver Stadium sculpture, "Running onto the Field" is a handcrafted, heavy bronze resin statue offered by Distinct Collectibles of Reading.

"We are so very pleased to honor Joe Paterno's legacy and to provide a unique way for other admirers to remember and honor his commitment and generosity of spirit with this beautiful work of art," said Michael Flanagan of Distinct Collectibles. "This is the first in our series of limited edition collections designed to celebrate the unique quality of greatness."

Each statue is handcrafted by artist Angelo Di Maria. After sculpting in clay, Di Maria casts each piece in a heavy bronze resin. He then finishes them to emulate the bronze statuary he developed for public display. The finished figurine stands 18.5 inches tall with a weighted, black pedestal base and weighs over 10 pounds. Fans who long to "bring the statue home" can order their own limited edition figurine online at www.distinctcollectibles.com or by calling toll-free 844-236-9751. "Running onto the Field" is available for $590. Most orders are shipped within three to four weeks.

A portion of the proceeds of each Paterno figurine supports The Paterno Foundation. The Paterno Foundation is a non-profit organization established by the Paterno family to honor the legacy of the late Joe Paterno and his wife, Sue. The foundation will continue the Paternos' philanthropic mission, which is best summarized in Joe Paterno's simple philosophy: Make an impact.

About Joe Paterno

Joe Paterno came to Penn State as an assistant coach in 1950. As Head Coach from 1966 through 2011 he won a record 409 games, 2 National Championships, 27 Eastern and Big Ten Championships, and led Penn State to 5 Undefeated seasons, 23 National Top Ten finishes and an NCAA Record 24 Bowl wins. He coached 48 Academic All-Americans, 79 First-Team All-Americans, over 250 NFL Draft Picks, 9 College Football Hall of Famers and 3 NFL Hall of Famers. He was a 2007 College Football Hall of Fame inductee and Sports Illustrated's 1986 Sportsman of the Year; the only college football coach ever honored. His teams consistently posted graduation rates that were among the nation's best.

Paterno was also an important fund-raiser for Penn State. He and his wife Sue personally committed millions of dollars to Penn State academics and helped to raise hundreds of millions more. Their philanthropy also included seven-figure gifts to hospitals and churches, as well as a commitment of their money and time to Pennsylvania Special Olympics and many other worthy causes.

About the Artist

The creator of the famous statue of Joe Paterno known by millions, Angelo Di Maria was born in Delia, Sicily in 1947. His interest in sculpture began when he was a six-year-old child, when he would become totally absorbed in creating small figures and animals. In 1958, the Di Maria family emigrated from Sicily to begin a new life in Reading, Pa. Today, with 48 years of experience of sculpting a variety of subjects -- from the human form to wildlife -- Di Maria has a unique ability to capture the essence of his subjects, especially facial expressions that elude other sculptors. He is the 2008 recipient of the "Pagoda Award" for excellence in Artistic Development and a member of the "International Sculpture Center."

About Distinct Collectibles

Distinct Collectibles of Reading, Pa., is an online retailer dedicated to celebrating the unique quality of greatness through limited edition figurines of individuals whose influence is felt in their field, as well as in their commitment to others.

Triton Algae Innovations Ltd. Names Dr. Xun Wang as President Oct 25, 2014 02:10PM

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2014

Triton Algae Innovations, a pioneer in synthetic biology, today announced Dr. Xun Wang has joined the firm as President and Director of all Research & Development.

Triton has developed a patented synthetic biology platform for the production of high value algae-based proteins. According to Dr. Wang, the platform uses algae to produce novel products with advantages over traditional expression systems. He says, "Algae are unique because they can produce compounds that other organisms cannot. What's more, they can be safely consumed without modification. And, they can be cultivated inexpensively at large scale, a key component to commercialization."

Triton's products represent a paradigm shift in how proteins are developed and delivered, and satisfy a market that cannot be met by traditional methods. Triton produces complex proteins, enzymes, and other biologics that are cost- effective and have immediate applications in agricultural, pharmaceutical, and other retail markets.

Prior to Triton, Dr. Wang was a Senior Vice President at Reliance Industries Limited, a Fortune Global 500 company. As the Head of Technology, his responsibilities included overseeing all aspects of Algae-to-Oil technology development, driving company scientific strategy, and developing internal and external scientific collaborations. Previously, he was the Senior Vice President of R&D at Sapphire Energy Inc., a leading algae biofuel start-up company based in San Diego. Here, Dr. Wang led all R&D programs, including algae genetics and biotechnology, and cultivation and harvesting systems.

From 1993 to 2010, Dr. Wang held various positions in leading agricultural industries. Dr. Wang was the President of Syngenta Biotechnology (China) Co. Ltd. (SBC). He was also the Asia Pacific Regional Head of Biotechnology in Syngenta, a member in the Syngenta Global R&D Leadership Council, and a member of the Syngenta Global Biotechnology Leadership Team. From 2006 to 2010, he led the effort of setting up SBC, a Syngenta global R&D center. Before this, he was the Head of Trait Research and Technologies at the Syngenta global biotech R&D center in North Carolina, as well as the Founder and Director at Torrey Mesa Research Institute (Syngenta) in San Diego. Prior to Syngenta, Dr. Wang was a Research Manager in Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Iowa, a DuPont Company, where he led the very first genome project in the agricultural industry.

Dr. Wang is author or co-author of 52 patents and has published 21 international, peer-reviewed research articles. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry and an M.S. in Biochemistry from Jilin University, and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics from Iowa State University.

"We're delighted that Dr. Wang has joined the Triton team," said Dr. Jason Pyle, CEO of Triton. "He, Dr. Mayfield, and I worked together at Sapphire Energy and his leadership skills were evident from day one. Dr. Wang's grounding in agricultural biotechnology makes him one of the foremost algae biotech experts in the world."

About Triton Algae Innovations

Headquartered in San Diego, Triton Algae Innovations has created the world's foremost algae platform for producing high value proteins and other biologics. The firm's Phycologix technology will spur algae industry-wide to the forefront of protein production.

Proteins produced through the Psychololgix process will find wide application in pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, and human and animal health and nutrition products, such as antibacterials, vaccines, hormones, and antioxidants.

Triton's Mammary Associated Amyloid (MAA), a mammalian colostrum protein that addresses intestinal diseases in pets, livestock, and humans, will be available commercially in limited quantities in early 2015.
