Quaker Oats recalls granola bars, cereal due to salmonella risk

Dr. Frank Contacessa, an internist at Custom Care Medical, joins Varney & Co. to discuss a new report that the United Kingdom is beginning to remove certain U.S. candies from shelves.

Quaker Oats has recalled more than two dozen types of granola bars and cereals due to a possible salmonella contamination risk.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain and, in rare cases, death.

In extreme cases, Salmonella can enter the bloodstream and cause more serious illnesses such as artery infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

“POTENTIAL FOREIGN MATERIAL” LEADS TO RECALL OF NEARLY 2,000 CASES OF COCA-COLA PRODUCTS
