    Seneca Cinnamon Apple Chips Recalled Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

    Salmonella contaminated cinnamon used in Seneca Cinnamon Apple Chips leads to a recall of a number of products:

                A recall has been initiated by Seneca Snack Company, a Washington Corporation, for Seneca Cinnamon Apple Chips and Clancy’s Cinnamon Apple Chips, due to potential Salmonella contamination. Seneca Snack Company issued the recall after an ingredient supplier informed the company that the cinnamon ingredient used in the apple chips could be contaminated with Salmonella. Thus, only cinnamon apple chips are being recalled, specifically Seneca Cinnamon Apple Chips sold by Amazon and Gemline nationwide, and Clancy’s Cinnamon Apple Chips sold in ALDI stores. The recall exclusively involves the following products with specific product size and labels:

Currently, no illnesses due to the contaminated apple chips have been reported. For any questions regarding the recall Seneca Foods Consumer Affairs can be reached at 1-800-872-1110.

                According to the CDCSalmonella is a food borne illness causing bacteria that causes the majority of food poisoning cases in the United States with approximately 1.35 million infections per year. Symptoms of Salmonella contamination typically present as typical food poisoning symptoms: diarrhea, which may be bloody, fever, and stomach cramps, though some patients have reported symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and headaches. Salmonellosis, the infection caused by Salmonella contamination, symptoms may begin as early as 6 hours and as late as 6 days after consumption, and the illness typically lasts 4-7 days. Medical treatment may be necessary for Salmonella contamination in cases with dehydration or a fever of more than 102 degrees Fahrenheit.

                People with compromised immune systems, such as the elderly, children, and those with weakened immune systems, are at an increased risk for a severe Salmonella infection, such as bloodstream infection. According to Ron Simon, the  national salmonella lawyer:

    “If you believe you are suffering from Salmonella contamination, contact your physician immediately and ask for a stool test.”
