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.gov. 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.gov.
