Many favorite foods are being recalled for Salmonella contamination, and with something this serious, it's important to take note on what you can and can't eat.
Here's a list of foods that have been recalled for Salmonella concerns:
Pepperidge Farms recalled four types of Goldfish Crackers due to the chance the powder used in the seasoning contained Salmonella. They recalled Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Flavor Blasted Sour Cream and Onion, Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar, and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel. No illnesses have been reported.
Flowers Food has recalled Swiss Rolls sold under the brand names Mrs. Freshley’s, Food Lion, H-E-B, Baker’s Treat, Market Square, and Great Value. The company has also recalled Captain John Derst’s Old Fashioned Bread. No illnesses have been reported.

Spring Pasta Salad
Hy-Vee recalled Spring Pasta Salad in July when approximately 20 illnesses were potentially linked back to customers who ate the salad.
Zesty Sprouting Mix
Zetsy Sprouting Mix is also added to the list because its main ingredient is potentially contaminated with Salmonella. There have been no illnesses reported.
Honey Smacks Cereal
The popular Kellogg's Company cereal has been linked to a Salmonella contamination that infected 100 people in 33 states. At least 30 of the people infected have been hospitalized.
Caito Foods recalled their pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fruit medley products. Seventy (70) people have been affected across seven states and 34 people have been hospitalized.
More than 200 million eggs from Rose Acre Farms of Seymour, Ind., were recalled in April due to possible contamination with salmonella. As of April, 22 illnesses were reported. The outbreak has been contained and no longer presents a health threat.
CDC is not advising that consumers avoid eating properly cooked turkey products, or that retailers stop selling raw turkey products, but 90 people were infected with Salmonella across 26 states due to raw turkey pet food, raw turkey products, and live turkeys. So long as the turkey is thoroughly cooked, no danger should be present.
Hungry Man frozen dinners
A public health alert was issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service for 15.25-oz. individual frozen microwavable dinners with "HUNGRY MAN CHIPOTLE BBQ SAUCED BONELESS CHICKEN WYNGZ” printed on the label and bearing a best buy date of 9/6/19.
The health alert said the Hungry Man Dinners could be contaminated with salmonella from whey powder that was recalled by the ingredient’s producer.
The dinners listed by the health alert were shipped to retail locations in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.
The U.S.D.A. said there weren’t any illnesses reported due to the consumption of the dinners, but if people were concerned to contact a health care provider.
Symptoms of Salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps that occur 12 to 72 hours after being exposed and the illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment, but some experience worse symptoms and may need to be hospitalized.
Children younger than 5 years and adults older than 65 years, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to experience a severe illness.
If you think you have been exposed to Salmonella, see your doctor immediately.
