Recall on Apple Chips Bought from Two Retailers
Two retailers are pulling back two separate brands of apple chips over concerns of Salmonella contamination.
The recall affects bags of Clancy's Cinnamon Apple Chips purchased at Aldi stores, and Seneca Snack Company Cinnamon Apple Chips sold on Amazon.
The potential Salmonella exposure may come from the cinnamon dusted onto the apple chips, and not from the apples themselves, reports Fox23.com.
Here are more details on the products being recalled:
• Clancy’s Cinnamon Apple Chips: 2.5 ounces; package codes - 26JUN2021 and 27JUN2021.
• Seneca Cinnamon Apple Chips: 0.7 ounces; UPC No. 0 18195-70140 4; package code - 26JUN2021.
• Seneca Cinnamon Apple Chips: 2.5 ounces; UPC No. 0 18195-70100 8; package code - 28JUN2021.
FDA.gov writes, “Seneca was notified by an ingredient supplier that it shipped one lot of ingredients containing cinnamon that has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella."
So far, no illnesses have been reported related to either brand of apple chips. The Centers for Disease Control warns that someone infected with salmonella will often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal discomfort, and, in some cases, lead to more severe ailments.
Just a few days ago, we wrote about a possible outbreak of Salmonella traced to pet hedgehogs that reportedly sickened one person here in New Jersey. That Salmonella warning extended to 16 other states.
