Asher's Chocolate Products Recalled

From the WebMD Archives

Sept. 6, 2016 -- A number of Asher's brand chocolate products are being recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.

The recalled items were sold in stores nationwide, but no illnesses have been reported so far, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said.

Consumers with the recalled products should not eat them. To arrange for the return of products and a refund, call the company at 888-288-3880 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, Monday through Friday.

Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain in healthy people, and serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems, the FDA said.
