The recall comes as a precautionary measure by the company as several holiday treats could have possible salmonella contamination, the company announced on Thursday.

Salmonella infection is caused by bacteria and affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella is a group of bacteria that causes gastroenteritis, enteric fever, typhoid fever, food poisoning and other illnesses. People are infected when they ingest contaminated food or water. Meat, poultry and eggs are common vectors for salmonella.
Salmonella can cause gastroenteritis. The common signs of gastroenteritis are stomach cramps, bloody stools, diarrhea, chills, headaches, muscle pain, nausea and vomiting. Typhoid fever caused by salmonella takes around 7 to 14 days for symptoms to appear. If left untreated, symptoms may appear over a course of four weeks with new symptoms appearing each week.
Majority of patients who are ill with typhoid fever rapidly respond to treatment. The first week of typhoid may include a dull ache in the front of the head, abdominal pain, skin rash with pink spots, not feeling well which can be progressive, constipation and diarrhea, mental confusion, dry cough and a fever which rises to 39 to 40 degrees Celsius and settles at that temperature according to an article by Medical News Today.
