Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps. Most people can recover without treatment, but in some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.
Although no sicknesses have been reported to date in connection with the products, consumers who have any of these products in their homes are urged to throw them out or to return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
Those with questions may call 1-800-756-5781 during weekday business hours.
