FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 5, 2015 – GREEN BAY, WI – Eillien's Candies Inc. announced today that it is voluntarily recalling various sizes and brands of Walnut Pieces because some of these products may be contaminated with Salmonella.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
