Quaker Oats has issued a recall for granola bars and granola cereals because of potential contamination with Salmonella.
Product: Granola Bars and Granola Cereals
Reason: Salmonella Illness
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.
Instructions: Please isolate any affected product (see below table) and destroy it in a secure manner to prevent unauthorized consumption. If you have product stored out of the case and are unsure of the code date please destroy this product also.
If you have further distributed any of these products, then you are responsible to notify all consignees of this recall.
The recall includes only the below items and lot codes that were sold by Gordon Food Service.
