FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- February 3, 2009 – Marlow Candy & Nut Company of Englewood, NJ has initiated a voluntary recall of certain products they package because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. The product was sourced from Peanut Corporation of America.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail 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.
