Deadly Contamination Leads to Recall of Favorite Snack Food Across US

July 19, 2018Jul 19, 2018

Flowers Foods, Inc. has issued a recall of its cream-filled Swiss rolls due to a dangerous contamination.

According to KETV, the food items may contain potential traces of salmonella. They were sold in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States.

The rolls were sold under the brand names Mrs. Freshley’s, Food Lion, H-E-B, Baker’s Treat, Market Square, and Great Value and were distributed nationwide.

As of Thursday, no illnesses were reported from the recalled snacks.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, especially in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Persons infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In more extreme cases, salmonella can get into the bloodstream and produce severe illness and arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

The company recommends that consumers discard the products or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Questions may be directed to Flowers’ Consumer Relations Center at 1-866-245-8921
