Quaker recalls some granola bars and cereal due to salmonella risk

Published 7:28 pm Wednesday, December 27, 2023

The Quaker Oats Company announced the recall of specific granola bars and granola cereals because they are possibly contaminated with Salmonella.

The recall only applies to some granola bars and cereals, and does not apply to Quaker oats, oatmeal, flour, or other Quaker products. Some stores are issuing refunds to customers who bought the affected products.

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.
