 Zachary Confections Recalls Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Eggs Over Salmonella Risk

Possible salmonella contamination has led a candy manufacturer to recall a certain batch of chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs.

Zachary Confections, Inc., has revealed that chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs should ideally be discarded or just returned to the store.


Consumers have been asked to check the information on the product packaging next to the Unit UPC bar code label:

Zachary Chocolate-Covered Marshmallow Egg Crates in a white, 5-ounce package Unit UPC code: 0 75186 15797 8 Code dates: D3245D; D3145E; F3145E; D3245E Best Buy Date: 02/14/14

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.
