Salmonella is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and other 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 illness such as arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.  For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov.

The Palmer Candy Company initiated the voluntary recall in response to the FDA issuing a recall for all products produced out of the Peanut Corporation of America, Plainview, TX plant.  The recall is for all peanuts received from Peanut Corporation of America, Plainview, TX from January 1, 2007 to February 10, 2009. 

Palmer candy has not received any consumer illness complaints associated with its products.  However, it is taking precautionary steps, including removing the impacted products from retail store shelves and the entire distribution system. 

Consumers who have purchased the recalled products should return them to the store where they were purchased for a full refund.  Consumers with additional questions may call 800-831-0828.
