(Before It's News)

Krishna Food Corp. of Neshanic Station, NJ, is recalling 16 cartons of Bikaji Chowpati Bhelpuri, net weight 300 g., 10.58 oz., batch number 2016 F97, best before June 2017, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

The product, a type of Indian puffed rick snack, is packed within a pouch and was distributed in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania through retail stores.

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 917-478-3225, Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., ET.

Salmonella is an organism which 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.

In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (e.g., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
