Although to date, no health effects have been reported, there is the potential for Salmonella contamination. The affected product was distributed to select retailers across the United States, mostly on the East Coast. These limited products were made during a 10-day window, at one of our U.S. manufacturing sites on a single production line. All retailers have been notified of the affected products and are working to remove them.
