Jel Sert recalls pie filling over Salmonella risks

Posted on February 15, 2016 5:02 pm under Product Liability

The possible contamination of Salmonella is what prompted the Chicago-based Jel Sert Company to voluntarily recall 52 cases of its 4.2 ounce carton Margaritaville Banana Cream Pie Filling, according to press release issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on February 5.

While the product was not sold in markets, it was still distributed to consumers through sale samples and gift packages, according to the FDA’s announcement. No known illnesses have been reported to the company yet.

Elderly people, young children, and people with poor health are prone to adverse and fatal effects of Salmonella infection. Individuals with considerably healthier immune systems may display symptoms like abdominal pain, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, and nausea. Unfortunately, the worse effects of Salmonella infection include arthritis, endocarditis, and arterial infections like aneurysm.
