Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, fail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Consumers are advised not to consume these items and may return the items to Target for a refund or they may call target Guest Relations at 1-800-316-6151.
The safety and quality of Brent and Sam's products are of utmost importance to the company. As a result, Brent and Sam's is destroying its remaining supply of product received from Peanut Corp. of America and has discontinued using them as a supplier.
