Yogurt and milk chocolate covered pretzels recalled in Canada due to Salmonella contamination

Huer Foods Inc. is recalling Western Family brand yogurt-covered and milk chocolate-covered pretzels due to potential Salmonella contamination. The bacteria may not alter the appearance, odor, or taste of the affected food. Though anyone can contract Salmonella, vulnerable groups like infants, seniors, and those with weakened immune systems face higher risks, as per CDC.

Consumers experiencing symptoms of Salmonella infection after consuming the recalled products should seek medical advice, emphasizing potential exposure for accurate diagnosis. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) indicates distribution primarily in British Columbia, possibly extending elsewhere in Canada.

Recalled products:

- Western Family Yogurt-covered pretzels (240 g, UPC: 0 62639 35287 5, Code: 2024AU22N; 2024AU26N)

- Western Family Milk chocolate-covered pretzels (240 g, UPC: 0 62639 35286 8, Code: 2024AU26N)

No illnesses related to these products have been reported thus far. Consumers should refrain from using, selling, or distributing the recalled items. Symptoms of Salmonella infection include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours, often necessitating hospitalization in severe cases among vulnerable populations.
