Consumers should check to see if they have the recalled product in their home and if so, throw it out immediately or return to the store of purchase.

Food contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick.

Young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.

Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.

Fortunately, there have been no reported illnesses associated with consumption of the product at this time.
