March 8, 2010 – As a precautionary measure, National Pretzel Company of Lancaster, Pa., is voluntarily recalling all Honey Mustard Onion flavored pretzels produced since December 2009 because an ingredient used in the seasoning has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The honey mustard onion seasoning contains hydrolyzed vegetable protein (HVP) which was recalled by Basic Foods Flavors, Inc., of Las Vegas, Nevada, and has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recalled Honey Mustard Onion seasoned pretzels were distributed nationwide in retail stores and through repackers. The products included in the recall are:
No illnesses have been reported to date.
No other National Pretzel products are involved in the recall.
Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.Recalls, Recent News
