Consumers who have purchased the affected product should not ingest the product and may call the Ferrero Customer Service line Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST at 1-800-688-3552.

According to the Food and Drug Administration, “Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the frail, the elderly, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy people with salmonella often have fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea and vomiting. and abdominal pain. In rare cases, infection with salmonella can cause the organism to enter the bloodstream and produce more serious diseases such as arterial infections (such as infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.”
