Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Salmonella's symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.

However, the company has not reported any illnesses to date related to the recalled products.

In similar recalls citing potential contamination with Salmonella, Rochelle, Illinois-based BrightFarms last week called back certain packaged salad greens.

Further, Avanti Frozen Foods Pvt. Ltd. recalled certain Waterfront Bistro shrimp cocktail rings with sauce supplied to certain store banners including Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions, United, Amigos, Market Street and Albertsons Market.
