Iowa-based food manufacturer, Palmer Candy Company, voluntarily recalled some of their products after being notified that one of the ingredients used may possibly have hazardous salmonella bacteria, a January 9 article of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration stated.
In the recall article published by the FDA, Palmer Candy issued the recall after a supplier informed them that the powdered milk used in the affected chocolate candies may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria. Though there were no contamination incidents have been reported, federal authorities told reports that accidentally consuming food with salmonella may lead to serious or fatal illnesses that most often affect children, older adults, or people who have a very weak immune system. Consumers were advised to dispose the recalled chocolates or bring it to the store where they bought it to get a full refund.
The Danville attorneys at Spiros Law, P.C., strongly believe that families who have to deal with a great financial loss when their loved one suffer illnesses as a result of consuming potentially dangerous food products should be rightfully compensated.
