Newly Weds Foods, Inc. of Chicago, IL  is recalling over 50,000 pounds of seasoning, starch blend and breader because of potential Salmonella contamination in an ingredient.

According to the details posted online by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), the recall was initiated on May 2, 2024, and is ongoing.

The recalled products were distributed in Florida, Illinois and Texas.

About Salmonella infections
Anyone who has consumed any of the recalled products and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention. Sick people should tell their doctors about the possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria because special tests are necessary to diagnose salmonellosis. Salmonella infection symptoms can mimic other illnesses, frequently leading to misdiagnosis.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Otherwise, healthy adults are usually sick for four to seven days. In some cases, however, diarrhea may be so severe that patients require hospitalization.

Older adults, children, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop a severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.

Some people get infected without getting sick or showing any symptoms. However, they may still spread the infections to others.
