Hy-Vee Recalling Products: Possible Salmonella Contamination Of Candy Treats
Hy-Vee Recalling Products issued a recall of several candy products. The recall comes as a precautionary measure by the company as several holiday treats could have possible salmonella contamination, the company announced on Thursday. The recall includes 20 assortments of dazzled peanut brittle, holiday candy tray, chocolate almond bark and pretzels, peppermint bark and candy and cookie trays.
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.
Hy-Vee stated in a news release that the potential contamination was brought to their attention when Palmer Candy Company announced a recall on their chocolate products this week. The supplier of Palmer, Valley Milk Products LLC stated that the milk powder used for chocolate coating could possibly be contaminated with Salmonella. Hy-Vee recalling products ensures safety for consumers.
