A Palmyra, WI., establishment is now recalling Cataplex C, ACP, and Pancreatrophin PMG dietary supplements because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella, a potentially deadly pathogen. This recall was initiated after a routine inspection by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) revealed that one of the ingredients used in the products contained the bacteria. Signs and symptoms of salmonella poisoning (salmonellosis) may include fever, diarrhea (which may be watery or bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Salmonella Poisoning (Salmonellosis)
Salmonella is a common foodborne pathogen that can cause potentially life-threatening illnesses in children, the elderly, and those with otherwise compromised immune systems. Signs and symptoms of salmonellosis may include (but are not limited to):
- diarrhea (which may be watery or bloody)
- abdominal pain
In severe cases, salmonella infections can result in the pathogen infiltrating the bloodstream and producing arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis, and arthritis.
