Salmonella Food Poisoning
Eating products that are contaminated with Salmonella can lead to severe infections — especially in young children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems. Healthy adults who are infected with Salmonella typically experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain.
The FDA has also warned about life-threatening complications:
“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditic and arthritis.”
What Products Were Recalled?
The garlic powder was used in dozens of products — including guacamole mix, taco seasoning, ranch dressing, pesto sauce mix, vegetarian broth, and more. The recalls highlight how one ingredient can contaminate a wide variety of products.
