The company has revealed their concern about salmonella contamination of the said batch which was detected during a routine testing. So, far no reports of sickness due to consumption of this product have been reported.

Infection due to salmonella contamination can cause abdominal pain, fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

Salmonellosis is mostly treated by rehydration using intravenous fluids. Antibiotics are administered in case of severe infection.

Normally, Salmonella infections last for a week. Rigorous treatment is often not required to control the illness. Diarrhea, in these patients, may be completely cured although it will take a while before normalcy is regained in the bowels. However, medical help must be sought if the patient suffers from severe dehydration or if the infection reaches the blood stream and spreads to other body parts.
