Egg rolls from a Hayward manufacturer are now
being recalled after state health officials warned Tuesday they contain
pepper associated with a recent salmonella outbreak.
California Department of
Public Health officials advised consumers not to eat chicken egg rolls and
vegetable egg rolls from EDS Wrap and Roll Foods, LLC.
The products are made
with pepper already being recalled by Union International Food Co., of
The pepper has been
associated with a salmonella outbreak that has sickened 48 people in four
states, including 39 in Central and Northern California, according to the
Department of Public Health.
Salmonella is known to
cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain in healthy
adults, and can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in infants and
weak or elderly people, according to health officials.
State and federal health
officials are also investigating recent salmonella contamination in
pistachios and pistachio products.
U.S. Food and Drug
Administration officials announced Tuesday that the Central California
company Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc., is expanding its recall of
roasted pistachios to include all those produced from nuts harvested last
year. The company is also recalling raw shelled pistachios from last year's
crop that are not roasted prior to sale.
Consumers are advised not
to eat pistachios or food products containing the nuts, such as baked goods
and ice cream, unless they are found not to contain pistachios
recalled by Setton.
