Honey Mustard Pretzels Recalled Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination

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.

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.
