FDA: Famous chocolate cookies recalled in the United States for possible salmonella

The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported that marketer PepsiCo S de RL de CV voluntarily recalled 6 units of Gemesa Arcoiris marshmallow cookies due to the possible presence of salmonella.

The recall was initiated as a result of a routine sampling program conducted by the company that revealed that the finished product may contain Salmonella.

The FDA warns that salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail or elderly, and other people with weakened immune systems.

“Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, a Salmonella infection can cause the organism to enter the bloodstream and cause more serious illnesses, such as arterial infections. , endocarditis and arthritis.

The company initiated a voluntary recall of cookies from warehouses in California and Texas in the interest of “protecting consumers”. However, the FDA says it “may reach consumers through select retail stores.”

The company is working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to further investigate the issue and ensure that the recalled product is removed from store shelves and is no longer distributed. To date there has been no confirmed illness related to Salmonella.

Salmonellosis is a bacterial disease that is spread by Salmonella. FSIS states that the most common symptoms are “diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product.”

Usually the symptoms of the disease last for 4 to 7 days. However, if a person’s condition becomes complicated, he may require hospitalization.

“Older adults, infants, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop severe disease,” he emphasizes.
