Quaker Oats Granola Recall Issued Over Salmonella Food Poisoning Risks

FDA urges consumers to throw away recalled Quaker granola bars and granola cereals, and sanitize any surfaces the products may have contacted, to reduce the risk of salmonella food poisoning.

Certain Quaker Oats chewy bars, cereals and assorted snacks are being recalled due to a risk they may be contaminated with salmonella, which can lead to serious and potentially life-threatening food poisoning infection.

The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the Quaker Oats granola recall on December 15, instructing consumers to immediately stop eating certain granola bars and granola cereals, and to discard any remaining products to prevent the spread of salmonella food poisoning.

While no illnesses have yet been reported, officials warn that exposure to the recalled granola may pose serious risks of those with a weakened immune system, such as young children, the elderly and pregnant women. Therefore, consumers should also clean any surfaces that may have come into contact with the contaminated Quaker granola.

Salmonella food poisoning may result in diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain, which typically lasts between four and seven days. However, in rare circumstances the infection can even spread throughout the blood stream and cause arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.
