Two companies are recalling food products over possible microbial contamination, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
King’s Hawaiian is recalling its pretzel slider buns, pretzel hamburger buns and pretzel bites in connection with a recall from one of its suppliers, Lyons Magnus. Lyons Magnus is recalling an ingredient used in these pretzel products because of microbial contamination by Cronobacter sakazakii and Clostridium botulinum.
According to the FDA, infection from Cronobacter sakazakii could involve symptoms of fever, vomiting and urinary tract infection, while Clostridium botulinum may cause a severe form of food poisoning that begins from six hours to two weeks after eating food with the toxin. Symptoms include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing and muscle weakness.
No illnesses or pathogens connected with King’s Hawaiian products have been found, but the company said it is recalling the products to ensure consumer safety. The recall affects no other King’s Hawaiian products.
