No illnesses have been reported. Safeway initiated this recall as a precautionary measure.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, particularly in young children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and/or 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 (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Salmonella can cause foodborne illness (salmonellosis) through cross- contamination. Consumers are reminded to wash their hands before and after handling eggs. For more information, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Web site at www.cdc.gov1.

Customers are asked to discard these products or return them to their local store for a full refund. Customers who have questions about the recall can contact Safeway at 1-800-SAFEWAY or Taylor Farms at 209-835-6300 between the hours of 8am to 5pm PST, Monday through Friday, or visit the FDA website at www.FDA.gov2.

 Salmonella in Maggi Noodles

   

**This product has also been recalled in the US**

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATE) – Nestlé Philippines is recalling a number of its Maggi beef and chicken noddles for possible salmonella contamination.

The company said it found traces of salmonella in 2 batches of the noodle product’s beef variant.

“The product recall is a precautionary measure… to ensure the safety and quality of our products,” Nestlé Philippines said in an ad published in a newspaper.

Consumers who bought the recalled products are requested to contact Nestlé Philippines hotlines at telephone numbers 898-0061 (Metro Manila) and 1-800-100-637853 (provinces, toll-free).

Nestlé Philippines, however, said its products are safe to eat if the cooking instructions are properly followed.

Salmonella infections typically affect the intestines, causing vomiting, fever, and other symptoms.

Suzette Lazo, director of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told ANC Top Story on Thursday that Nestlé Philippines has informed her office regarding the recall.
