No illnesses were reported. Instead, the recall was announced due to potential contamination with Salmonella bacteria, which could result in a severe case of food poisoning or other complications.
According to the FDA, healthy people who are infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
In rare circumstances, Salmonella infections can result in bloodstream infections and more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
