Posting here, because at least one dog has died. 

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE
January 19, 2012

California Innovations Deluxe Travelin’ Chef with food containers and Cryofreeze™ Gel Pack

The gel pack contained in the product is being recalled. The thermal carrier and plastic food containers are safe. The item code is printed on a white label on the left hand side inside the main compartment lid.

Sold between August 2008 to December 2011.

This recall has been initiated because the gel pack was distributed with incorrect labeling stating the contents are non-toxic. Gel pack measures 8.5-in by 8-in.

Diethylene glycol and trace amounts of ethylene glycol have now been detected in the gel. Diethylene glycol and ethylene glycol are used in antifreeze and as solvents, and are health hazards if swallowed/ingested.

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL NOTICE
December 1, 2011
Expandable Lunch Box (Cryofreeze™ Gel Pack Recall)

To All Our Valued Customers:

At California Innovations, our number one commitment is to product safety.
To that end, in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), we are announcing a voluntary recall of the Cryofreeze™ gel pack that was included with the High Performance Expandable Lunch Box that was sold at Costco between May and November of 2007. This item was also sold by Leon Korol between July and September, 2008 and by Cost U Less between March and September, 2008. The affected gel pack was sold with lunch bags bearing the code 1-61731-99-57. You can find this code printed on one of the two white labels that are sewn under the white fastener inside the main compartment.

This recall has been initiated because the gel packs were distributed with incorrect labeling stating that their contents are non-toxic. If you still have these gel packs, please discontinue using them immediately and dispose of them according to federal, state and/or local regulations. It is recommended that you contact your waste disposal authority for their instructions. For handling instructions, please see Handling of the Cryofreeze™ Gel Pack below.

A health hazard could occur if the gel packs are damaged, allowing the interior gel to leak out and be ingested/swallowed by children/adults or pets. Diethylene glycol and trace amounts of ethylene glycol have now been detected in the gel.
