“The recall was initiated after it was discovered that salmonella and/or Staphylococcus aureus testing are not completed properly on these specific batch lots,” a Pharmavite press release said.
The signs of salmonella illness, including diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps, can start 12 to 72 hours after one is exposed to the bacteria. Illness can last four to seven days and most people recover by themselves. Salmonella causes an estimated 1 million cases of illness each year in the USA.
The existence of Staph aureus toxin in food can lead to food poisoning, based on Pharmavite, as well as the most common symptoms are nausea, vomiting, retching, abdominal cramping, and prostration.
Additional Nature Made items are being recalled because “there clearly was an ongoing process breakdown that does not let us rule out the presence of other microorganisms, such as yeast,” relating to an email from the company. The recalled products are:
