Krishna Food Corp of Neshanic Station, New Jersey, has recalled 16 cartons of BIKAJI Chowpati BHELPURI, NET WT: 300g 10.58 OZ Batch no 2016 F97 Best Before June 2017, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella is a bacterium capable of causing a serious and sometimes life-threatening infection known as salmonellosis. One of the most common foodborne illnesses, it can occur when food contaminated by Salmonella is consumed. According to the U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there are an estimated 1.2 million cases in the U.S. each year, with approximately 400 of those cases resulting in death. The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer severe illness.
Symptoms of Salmonella
Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning (salmonellosis) may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear within 6 to 72 hours after eating a Salmonella contaminated food.
In a small percentage of patients, a condition known as reactive arthritis may develop. Reactive arthritis is characterized by joint pain, eye irritation (conjunctivitis), and/or painful urination. Reactive arthritis symptoms may appear from 1-4 weeks following infection.
