CDC offers the following recommendations:
- Do not eat, sell, or serve any recalled products. Throw them away or return them to where you bought them.
- Wash items and surfaces that may have touched the recalled products using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.
- Contact a healthcare provider if you think you got sick from eating a recalled product.
Most people infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps 6 hours to 6 days after being exposed to the bacteria.
The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.
In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient is hospitalized. Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other parts of the body.
Children younger than 5, adults 65 and older, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe illness.
