The cause for the recall is a potential salmonella contamination. Palmer Candy's liquid coating supplier notified the company about a potential contamination.

Salmonella can be a fatal infection for young children, elderly adults or people with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of salmonella infection include fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. If salmonella enters the bloodstream it can also provoke more serious illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis, all according to the FDA.

Thankfully, no illnesses have been reported as of this writing.

If you have purchased any of the items included in this recall, you are encouraged to return the items to the place of purchase for a full refund. Do not consume these items under any circumstances.
