Tree­House Foods re­calls some prod­ucts cit­ing sal­mo­nella risk

Kuwait Times - - HEALTH & SCIENCE -

Pack­aged foods maker Tree­House Foods Inc on Sun­day re­called cer­tain mac­a­roni and cheese cup prod­ucts con­tain­ing ched­dar cheese sea­son­ing, say­ing they may be con­tam­i­nated with sal­mo­nella. The com­pany said no ill­nesses had been re­ported and that the prod­ucts had been dis­trib­uted na­tion­wide through re­tail stores.

Prod­ucts be­ing re­called are Big Win Orig­i­nal Mac­a­roni & Cheese Dinner, Cheese Club Ex­press Mac Mac­a­roni & Cheese Dinner and Great Value Mac­a­roni & Cheese Orig­i­nal Cups, the com­pany said.

Tree­House said the re­call was is­sued be­cause of a no­ti­fi­ca­tion from its sup­plier that the milk pow­der used in the sea­son­ing of the prod­ucts had the po­ten­tial for sal­mo­nella con­tam­i­na­tion. Sal­mo­nella is a bac­te­ria that typ­i­cally in­fects the in­testi­nal tract and can cause di­ar­rhea, fever and ab­dom­i­nal cramps. The US Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Pre­ven­tion es­ti­mates that about 1.2 mil­lion ill­nesses and about 450 deaths oc­cur be­cause of non-ty­phoidal sal­mo­nella an­nu­ally in the United States.
