Problem/Reason for Recall:
The recalled products may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Website at http://www.cdc.gov .
This possible contamination is not connected with the recent outbreak associated with peanuts or peanut butter.
Consumers should discard any product they have. Consumers can contact the company at 1-866-538-8280 with any questions.
There have been no cases of Salmonellosis reported to date in connection with these products and the company is issuing this recall as a precaution.
