These products are distributed nationwide, including Puerto Rico, Guam, and Saipan. Additionally, several varieties of Quaker Simply Granola cereal are also included in the recall.

No Reported Illnesses
Quaker has not received any confirmed reports of illness associated with the recalled products. The company has informed the Food and Drug Administration about the potential contamination. It is important to be aware of the symptoms of salmonella infection, which may include fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare cases, the infection can lead to more severe illness, such as arterial infections, endocarditis (a life-threatening inflammation of the heart’s chambers and valves), and arthritis.
