Salmonella is not something to mess around with. It can cause a bunch of stomach problems like diarrhea, fever, and cramps. Sometimes, it can be more serious, especially for kids, elderly people, or those with a weaker immune system. If you have any of the recalled candies, it's better to be safe and get rid of them.

If you want to check if the candies you bought are part of the recall or if you have other questions, you can talk to Palmer Candy directly. They have customer service representatives ready to help out. You can call them at 712-258-5543 on weekdays between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Central Standard Time.


Remember, it's always better to be cautious when it comes to food recalls. Throwing out or returning a few candies is worth it to keep you and your family healthy.
