PhotoKrishna Food Corp of Neshanic Station, New Jersey is recalling 16 cartons of BIKAJI Chowpati BHELPURI because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with a weakened immune system.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and 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.

The recalled units are from Batch no 2016 F97 Best Before June 2017 and were distributed in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania through retail stores. The product is packed within a pouch pack.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

Recent tests conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration show this product to be contaminated with Salmonella. Consumers who have purchased the product are urged to destroy it.

Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-917-478-3225 Monday – Friday, 9:30 am – 6:00 pm, ET.
