Sioux City, Iowa– Palmer Candy Company has issued a nationwide recall of its various “White Coated Confectionary Items” due to a potential risk of severe salmonella contamination. This recall extends to several states, including South Carolina.

Detailed Information on The Recall

The products impacted by this recall include a series of items from the company’s line including Caramel Swirl Pretzels, Classic Yogurt Pretzels, Patriotic White Fudge Cookies, Peanut Butter Snack Mix, and Zebra Fudge Cookies, among others, in varied sizes and packages. Customers can find a comprehensive list of the recalled items on the official website of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

Upon consuming these products, young children, elderly people, and individuals with compromised immunity are likely to contract severe and potentially fatal salmonella infections. The common symptoms of such an infection are fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. However, rare circumstances could lead to far worse health conditions such as arterial infections and endocarditis.

Distribution Impact

This recall has widespread implications as the suspected contaminated products were distributed nationwide in popular stores like Walmart, HyVee, Target, and Dollar General, reaching customers far and wide across the nation. The states affected by this issue include Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

Buyer Advisory

The FDA strongly urges those who have purchased the potentially contaminated confectionary items to return them to the point of purchase for a complete refund. Up until now, thankfully there hasn’t been any recorded illness triggered from consuming these products.

While investigations into the severe contamination are still underway, theirs is a need for immediate awareness and response from consumers to mitigate the potential health risk.
