(WFXR) — Ferrero U.S.A., Inc. is recalling its Kinder Happy Moments Chocolate Assortment and Kinder Mix Chocolate Treats basket because of the possibility of Salmonella.
Salmonella can cause serious and even deadly infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of Salmonella include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. It can even cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis, and arthritis.
