My mom used to make some kind of unstuffed cabbage, but I think it had some sweetness to it. I've never been able to find something quite like what she made. I have a stuffed pepper recipe that almost does it, but not quite. Of course I'm remembering this from my childhood, so who knows. She didn't make it when I was an adult.

Vietti Foods
Robert Russo

Vietti Foods is recalling approximately 200 cases of 15 oz cans of Southgate Hot Dog Chili Sauce, UPC 0 71846 95242 6, LOT # P642 M1217 70026. This recall has been initiated due to mislabeling because some of the cans may contain Dumplings with Chicken instead of Hot Dog Chili Sauce. The Dumplings with Chicken contain egg & wheat which are not listed on the label. People who have an allergy to eggs and/or wheat run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The recalled "Southgate Hot Dog Sauce" was distributed to 7 customers in 13 states including Alabama, Ohio, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Missouri, Texas, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Oklahoma, Mississippi, Florida and Georgia through retail stores. The product comes in a 15 ounce can marked with code P642 M1217 70026 on the bottom.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the cans labeled as Southgate Hot Dog Sauce contain Chicken and Dumplings that have wheat and egg which are allergens not listed on the label. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a mislabeling of cans at the end of a production run and has not affected any other product.
Consumers who have purchased a 15 ounce can of Southgate Hot Dog Sauce UPC # 0 71846 95242 6 with the code on the can bottom reading P642 M1217 70026 are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-615-244-7864 M-F 8am to 5pm CST.
Huh?  I've never seen this product before and I'm all about smaller these days since I have a teen now (What the everloving hell?!!?).  I looked briefly, but couldn't determine if this product is as shelf stable as epi.  Does anyone know - are these good for the same yearish?
I'd like to see how Auvi-Q compares as well. 
Main Discussion Board / Study: Untrained Teens Using Emergency Epinephrine Devices

Interesting.  I would think it's more obvious because when you pull of the cap on the new device that you can see the actual needle and know where it's supposed to go.  Now as to whether that causes more fear for the person administering it or the person needing the epinephrine, that's a different study.

Chris’s Cookies has recalled one lot of its Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Cookie 12 Oz (340g) Bags (Barcode#: 0068 0752) after a report that Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies were discovered in a Chocolate Chip Cookie Bag, and therefore the product may contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat this product.
The recalled product was distributed to Trader Joe’s stores in ONLY the following states: CT, DE, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, Northern Virginia, PA, RI, VT and Washington D.C. The affected products are stickered on the side of the bag with Lot CODE: 2060 and date codes SELL BY 031218 through 031818
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that a bag labeled as Trader Joe’s Chocolate Chip Cookies instead contained Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies. While there is a warning statement on the label that the product may contain traces of peanuts, “peanuts” is not listed as an ingredient.
No allergic reactions or illnesses have been reported to date. All of the affected Chocolate Chip Cookies have been removed from sale and destroyed. Consumers, who have purchased the affected product and have a peanut allergy, please do not eat it. Discard the product or return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Contact the company at 201-288-8881 with any questions, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EDT.

Yes, if you translate it.  It's the name of their bakery in Montréal.
