Salmonella Poisoning Quick Facts

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) [2.] estimates are that Salmonella bacteria are responsible for approximately 1.35 million infections, 26,500 hospitalizations, and 420 deaths in the United States annually.
  • The primary source of these infections is foodborne transmission.
  • Symptoms of Salmonella infection typically include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps, with onset occurring within 6 hours to 6 days after infection. These symptoms generally persist for 4 to 7 days.
  • While most individuals recover without specific medical treatment, antibiotics are reserved for severe cases or those at high risk of complications.
  • In some instances, the illness may be severe enough to necessitate hospitalization for affected individuals.
  • Early recognition of symptoms and prompt medical attention can help mitigate the severity of Salmonella infections.

FDA Recommendation

If you purchased any Palmer Candy products that are affected by this recall, you should not eat them, and either discard them immediately or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.
