Salmonella Concern Prompts Quaker Oats To Broaden Recall of Cereals and Granola Bars

The company Quaker Oats has expanded their December recall to include twenty-four more varieties of granola bars, cereals, and snack foods due to concerns of potential salmonella contamination.

The recall has been expanded to include Quaker Chewy Granola Bars and Cereals, Cap’n Crunch Bars and certain cereals, Gamesa Marias Cereal, Gatorade Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Bars, Munchies Munch Mix, and snack boxes containing these items.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has received 24 reports of adverse events linked to the initially recalled products. However, there have been no confirmed cases of illnesses associated with these foods. The FDA will conduct further investigations into these reports.

According to the FDA, Salmonella infections may result in symptoms such as fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and stomach pain. In some instances, these bacterial infections can be life-threatening, especially for young children, older individuals, or individuals with compromised immune systems.
