Austinuts Of Dallas, Inc. Announces Voluntary Recall of Honey Mustard Pretzels
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Dallas, Texas - March 10, 2010 - Austinuts of Dallas, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall for
Honey Mustard Pretzels,
Lot number 61150/0280
because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.
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. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov.
The Austinuts Honey Mustard Pretzels were only distributed at Austinuts' building sales in Dallas, Texas in 16 ounce clear zipper bags. Consumers having any of these products are urged to destroy them.
NO OTHER AUSTINUTS' PRODUCTS ARE PART OF THIS RECALL. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection to the above product.
The pretzels were manufactured by National Pretzel Company of Lancaster, PA and were coated with a seasoning mix that included hydrolyzed vegetable protein recalled by Basic Food Flavors, Las Vagas, NV because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Consumers with any other recall questions may contact Austinuts of Dallas, Inc. (214) 739-6887 during normal business hours, Monday through Saturday 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM Central Time. Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their doctor immediately.
