The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit (HNHU) shares the recall announcement of Quaker brand granola bars and cereals, and Cap’n Crunch brand Treat Bars – Berry Bar, that have been recalled due to Salmonella.
Food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still cause sickness. Symptoms typically start six to 72 hours after exposure to the Salmonella bacteria and can include the following: cramps, diarrhea, fever, nausea, vomiting, chills, headache, and bloody stool. Those infected with the Salmonella bacteria can spread it to others up to several weeks after becoming infected. Older adults, younger children, people who are pregnant and those with weakened immune systems are at the highest risk for more serious illnesses.
