Poppies International, Inc. Battleboro, North Carolina Recalls Mini Eclairs and Chocolate Covered Cream Puffs Because of Potential Health Risks
For Immediate Release
December 16, 2016
Poppies International, Inc.
Poppies International, Inc. of Battleboro, NC is issuing a voluntary recall of all products that were made with custard powder containing affected milk ingredients supplied by a secondary supplier, Valley Milk Products LLC, due to the possible presence of Salmonella. Although no pathogenic bacteria have been found in any of our ingredients or in any of our products, we have decided to recall products produced using the affected ingredient from this supplier. No illnesses or adverse health effects resulting from these events have been reported to date.
Salmonella is a bacterium that can cause diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps, and most individuals recover without treatment. In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.
Any consumers who have purchased or received any of the products described below should immediately discontinue use of the product and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at [email protected] or 252-442-4016, Attention: Heather Aycock, Quality Assurance, Monday through Friday between 9am-5pm EST.
