For Immediate Release
December 12, 2016
Auburn, NY - New Hope Mills is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of New Hope Mills Crepe MIX as it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The ingredient supplier has issued a recall of the bulk milk powder. Although no pathogenic bacteria have been found in the powdered milk product supplied to New Hope Mills, we have decided out of an abundance of caution to recall the product produced from the specific lot received from our ingredient supplier.
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.
The affected New Hope Mills Crepe MIX was shipped to distributors and retailers in the New York and Pennsylvania areas between the dates of 8/23/2016 and 9/20/2016.
