Organic milk is being recalled by the state of California after three children tested positive for the e-coli bacteria. The raw milk was sold by Organic Pastures of Fresno.

Three children who drank the un-pasteurized milk have tested positive for e-coli.   While none of the samples of milk have tested positive for e-coli, experts say they have established a link.

Officials say these cases are not related to the spinach e-coli outbreak.   

Playskool is recalling 255,000 Team Talkin' Tool Bench toys after the deaths of two children.   This comes after two children died after they swallowed toy nails that were sold with the bench.

The toys were sold at Toys 'R Us, Wal-Mart, Target and other national stores.  Consumers should take the toys from their kids and return the nails to Playskool to receive a $50 certificate.
