There have been no reports of illnesses related to this recall, Kader says.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says most people who get ill from Salmonella have diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps. Symptoms can begin anywhere from six hours to six days after infection and last up to a week.

Most people recover without treatment but some cases can be severe enough to require hospitalization and, in rare cases, can be deadly.
