To date, Eillien’s Candies has not received any reports of illnesses in connection with the items listed above.

The recall is the result of a routine sampling program conducted by FDA in the retail marketplace that revealed that a package of Walnut Pieces contained Salmonella.

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 (e.g., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
