Salmonella was discovered and reported to the FSIS by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.
The FSIS and CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), along with state public health partners are all working together to investigate this case.
Consuming food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Common symptoms would include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 6 hours, and up to 6 days after eating the contaminated product. The Illness usually lasts about 4 to 7 days and most people recover without treatment. For some, the diarrhea can get so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. This severity usually only occurs in older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems.
If you have purchased this product you are urged not to consume it, instead, please throw it away or return it to the place of purchase.
