Palmer Candy recalls a variety of products in 17 states

The candy looks delicious but could be contaminated - FDA

It’s the second candy recall for pathogens within days

There’s yet another candy recall that poses a threat to consumers with a sweet tooth. Palmer Candy Company of Sioux City, Iowa, is recalling its “White Coated Confectionary Items” because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 

The recalled Confectionary Items were distributed nationwide in retail stores and to wholesale outlets.

The recalled confectionary items were distributed nationwide in Walmart, HyVee, Target, Dollar General, and to distributors in Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin and Wyoming.

The product comes in a variety of retail packaging like bags, pouches and tubs.

So far, no illnesses have been reported but health officials want consumers to be aware of the threat.

According to Palmer Candy, the potential contamination lies in the liquid coating. The company was told there was a potential for contamination with salmonella from an ingredient that was potentially contaminated at one of their suppliers.

Production of the product has been suspended while FDA and the company continue their investigation as to the source of the problem.

What to do

Consumers who have purchased White coated confectionary items manufactured by Palmer Candy Company are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-831-0828 Monday through Friday 8 am – 5 pm.
