Veggie Booty Recalled!

The popular snack Veggie Booty is being recalled nationwide due to possible contamination with salmonella bacteria, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration reported.

Consumers are urged to throw any packages of the product away. This recall needs immediate attention as Veggie Booty is often eaten by children, and parents are urged to watch for signs of gastrointestinal illness in any youngster who has already eaten the product. The FDA has had 52 reports of illness in 17 states, beginning in March. Almost all of the victims have been children under age 10, mostly toddlers. Symptoms of salmonella poisoning may include bloody diarrhea abdominal cramps and fever. Symptoms usually begin within four days of exposure. People with weaker immune systems, including the young and elderly, are especially prone to salmonella poisoning.

Just the Veggie Booty - Check out this site: Probably because Salmonella can be present in some fruits and vegetables, because it contains a blend of Spinach, Kale, Cabbage, Carrots and Broccoli
