‘Tis the season for Salmonella? Gingerbread houses sold at Whole Foods are among the desserts subject to a recall after reports of food poisoning.
The gingerbread houses, manufactured by Rolf’s Patisserie, were recalled on Christmas Eve. A total of 100 cases of salmonella have been reported.
Salmonella can do the most damage to children and the elderly. Certainly, children are disproportionately eating more gingerbread houses.
The FDA recommends disposing of the desserts in a sealed container so people and animals cannot get access to and eat them. The company is working with retailers and restaurants to remove and discard the contaminated products from their shelves.
The following may have this product found at Whole Foods in 23 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin
