I mailed a check for my deposit on a condo 9/14 and sent via certified mail. As of 9/14 the check arrived at Teterboro Distribution Center, NJ. As of 9/18, the tracking states that the letter is “in transit, arriving late, moving through network”. We are now... 3 business days further out with no more updates. This is a time sensitive matter and I have called USPS multiple times today. No resolution or concern on their end. They have opened a case and will “have an answer in 2-3 business days.” I have even tried calling the distribution center at 201-375-4180 - of course, no answer. I have called and left a message for consumer affairs at 732-819-3260, can’t get a live representative. No one has an answer for the delay. My fear is this is a large excuse for, we lost your letter/check. All I want is my letter delivered. If the USPS is this incompetent and can’t locate it, I want a refund for the wasted postage. I want some kind of resolution. This is absolutely horrific and holding up the purchase of my condo.

5 days ago, I began usage of CVS Salicylic Acid Wart Removal Strips that contain 40%
salicylic acid. I have used them for about 5 days. Over the last five days around day two
I began having bouts of nausea but never attributed it to this. The... following day began
stomach cramps and pain. Today my left side of my back is burning deep inside
around the kidney area. I have excessive thirst not being fixed by drinking water. My
vision is blurry and I also have an awful taste in my mouth. The taste in my mouth is
exactly what the scent of these strips is. I looked up and then contacted a poison
control center and it is suggested this may be a case of Salicylic Acid poisoning from
this product. The occurrences over this short span ae far too coincidental for this to not
be the case. Upon further research it is nearly identical to a case in 2008 in which a
pediatric patient exposed to a similar product experienced similar symptomatology that
was determined to be a poisoning by this type of product. These products are not safe.
The product has been used on the left pointer finger below the middle knuckle. There is
some area of skin that has sloughed off and was bright pink earlier and is now white.
The finger itself feels off like neurologically off and partially numb currently. It has now
been 24 hours since I began this report and the symptoms are beginning to subside
slightly. It is a slow subside though. The only thing different today is my kidney does
not hurt constantly now it is off and on but much less intense and easing as time goes
on more so. The nausea has subsided. The taste however still remains in my mouth but
is slightly less than before but not enough yet. The other remaining symptoms include
stomach cramping, some nausea off and on but no longer constant, bloating, I
experienced measured tachycardia as well as a burning sensation along the left hand
side of the mid back right below the rib cage ending. This pain has subsided but is still
occasionally present for a split second then gone. | Symptoms: Cramps, Blurry vision
Philips Respironics CPAP or Bi-Level PAP therapy masks - recalled due to potential risk of serious injury, USA
2 weeks ago
These masks may continue to be used according to the updated instructions and labeling if patients or people in close proximity to them do not have implanted metallic medical devices or metallic objects in the body.
Royal Philips’ (NYSE: PHG; AEX: PHIA) subsidiary Philips Respironics is alerting... users of certain CPAP or Bi-Level PAP therapy masks with magnetic headgear clips or straps that these devices should not be used by or near patients and their household members, caregivers and bed partners who have metallic implanted devices or metallic objects (such as metallic splinters) in the body. The magnetic headgear clips are used to attach the headgear straps to the masks, which is a method that is commonly used in the sleep therapy devices industry.
This is a voluntary notification to users of specific CPAP or Bi-Level PAP therapy masks containing such magnetic clips to inform them of the updated instructions and labeling. All users should read and follow Philips Respironics’ voluntarily updated warning and added contraindication described below. This represents a new and industry-leading practice.
Contraindication: Use of the mask is contraindicated for patients and their household members, caregivers and bed partners that may be in close vicinity to patients using the masks, that have implanted devices that may be affected by magnets, including but not limited to:
- Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD)
- Magnetic metallic implants/electrodes/valves placed in upper limbs, torso, or higher (i.e., neck and head)
- Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) shunts (e.g., ventriculo peritoneal (VP) shunt)
- Aneurysm clips
- Embolic coils
- Intracranial aneurysm intravascular flow disruption devices
- Metallic cranial plates, screws, burr hole covers, and bone substitute devices
- Metallic splinters in the eye
- Ocular implants (e.g., glaucoma implants, retinal implants)
- Certain contact lenses with metal
- Implants to restore hearing or balance that have an implanted magnet (such as cochlear implants, implanted bone conduction hearing devices, and auditory brainstem implants)
- Magnetic denture attachments
- Metallic gastrointestinal clips
- Metallic stents (e.g., aneurysm, coronary, tracheobronchial, biliary)
- Implantable ports and pumps (e.g., insulin pumps)
- Hypoglossal nerve stimulators
- Devices labeled as MR (Magnetic Resonance) unsafe
- Magnetic metallic implants not labeled for MR or not evaluated for safety in a magnetic field
Patients should stop using the affected mask if the implant/medical device is contraindicated against the mask magnets. Patients should consult their physician immediately to determine if another mask can be used for their therapy. In the interim, switch to a non-magnetic mask if available, for continued therapy.
Patients should properly dispose of the mask that has magnets after an alternative is obtained. These masks may continue to be used according to the updated instructions and labeling if patients or people in close proximity to them do not have implanted metallic medical devices or metallic objects in the body.
Warning: Magnets with a magnetic field strength of 400 mT are used in the mask. With the exception of the devices identified in the contraindication, ensure that the mask is kept at least 6 inches (approx. 15 cm) away from any other medical implants or medical devices that can be impacted by the magnetic fields to avoid possible effects from localized magnetic fields. This includes household members, caregivers, and bed partners that may be in close vicinity to patients that use the masks.
Impacted masks include: More than 17 million masks containing magnetic clips have been distributed by Philips Respironics to date. As of August 30, 2022, Philips Respironics has received 14 reports of patients suggesting that the mask magnets may have impacted their medical devices including pacemaker interference, pacemaker failure leading to replacement, need of shunt adjustment, resetting of automatic implantable cardioverter defibrillator (AICD), seizures, defibrillator shutting off periodically, arrhythmia, irregular blood pressure, change in heartbeats, and cognitive issues.
Patients may contact their Durable Medical Equipment (DME) provider, which supplied the masks affected by this notice. This voluntary medical device corrective action has been reported to the regulatory agencies in the countries where these masks are available.
In case you experienced harm from this product, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve issues and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.

I ordered an outdoor dog kennel. I tried to contact company for shipping info and no response. I filed a scam to credit card company. Then I recieved a small package with some type of phone charger in it.. far from a dog kennel
It looks they are all hitting expiry, packets i had in the house, and have seen while shopping. Not sure if it means that they will be less reliable, or not work at all. Either way, not good timing heading into fall, where covid may flare up again.
Did my first SHEIN haul, was excited to open it, but the toxic odor coming from the products was unreal. It hit me hard, I ended up getting a headache out of the shoes especially. I had to put everything outside to air for 24 hours. I... do not know what they use to make the product, but beware especially if opening around babies or children.
The smell subsided after airing, and the products were ok to use. | Symptoms: Headache
