Quaker Oats Recalls Dozens Of Granola Products Due To Potential Salmonella Contamination

A large number of granola items made by the Quaker Oats Company have been recalled because of concerns about salmonella contamination.

According to a notice published on Friday by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the recall affects over forty different granola bar and granola cereal brands.

Quaker said the listed products “have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.” No further details were provided on the potential contamination.

As of this writing, Quaker has not received any verified reports of illness associated with the recalled items. The business Quaker announced that they had notified the FDA of their activities.

All 50 states, plus Guam, Saipan, and Puerto Rico, carry the products.

According to the company, none of Quaker’s other products are affected.

The majority of the salmonella bacteria can cause salmonellosis, a disease that affects humans, according to the CDC.

According to the CDC, the majority of infected individuals will have diarrhea, fever, and stomach pains within a few hours to days after contracting the virus. However, it is worth noting that some individuals may not exhibit any symptoms for up to a few weeks after infection. Occasionally, the infection could be deadly.

According to the CDC, the risk of developing severe infections is higher in infants, the elderly (65 and above), and individuals with compromised immune systems.
