Cheese & Deli Foods Recalled Nationwide
If you’ve purchased Jule’s Foods Brie Cheese, Jules Spinach Dip, or Jules Ranch Dressing then don’t miss this recall! Because, the FDA has warned that these products could be contaminated with Salmonella.
What is a Recall?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the United States are the departments responsible for investigating potential problems with food safety. Of course, from their investigations, they may issue warnings to the public. In other words, a Recall by the FDA or CDC means that the product in question is not safe for the specified reason. Additionally, guidelines and instructions are given for each recall, based on the specific threat at hand. For example, they may warn that consumers should not consume the product. Or, they may suggest that the company responsible is willing to refund the purchase price.
Why is There a Recall?
The recall is due to the product potentially being contaminated with Salmonella. The FDA has a preliminary confirmation of Salmonella in brie products containing cashews. They are still investigating where the contamination occurred. Jules has suspended production of the products in this recall until which time they have concluded their investigation.
What is Salmonella?
The common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating a contaminated product. Most people recover without treatment. However, in certain circumstances, an infection can produce more severe illnesses and require hospitalization. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
