Glutino Voluntarily Recalls Glutino Rosemary and Olive Oil Snack Crackers (4.25 oz. and 20 oz.) Because of Possible Health Risk
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Paramus, NJ – June 2, 2014 - Glutino, a division of GFA Brands, Inc. based in Paramus, NJ, is voluntarily recalling Glutino Rosemary and Olive Oil Snack Crackers. The recall is being initiated because the seasoning supplier, Kerry Ingredients, recalled the seasoning blend due to possible Salmonella contamination.
Glutino Rosemary and Olive Oil Snack Crackers products with “Best By” date of October 26, 2014 are being recalled because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism that 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, 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.
The recalled Glutino Rosemary and Olive Oil Snack Crackers were distributed nationally through retail and warehouse club stores. The product affected is sold in a 4.25 ounce and a 20 ounce opaque white box with a “Best By” date of October 26, 2014 stamped on the top of the box. The recall is limited to the Glutino Rosemary and Olive Oil Snack Crackers and does not extend to any other Glutino products.
