Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov9.
Consumers with any other recall questions may contact AustiNuts Wholesale, Inc. (800) 404-6887 ext. 215. (Mon – Thu 8am – 4pm & Fri 8am- 2pm.) Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their doctor immediately.
