According to the recall, the dough was potentially contaminated with Salmonella. The recall was first initiated on May 2 and is ongoing more than a month later. The products were distributed in

  • Ohio
  • California
  • Pennsylvania
  • Florida
  • Oregon
  • North Carolina
  • Illinois
  • Wisconsin
  • Massachusetts
  • Louisiana
  • Colorado
  • Texas
  • Minnesota
  • Missouri
  • New York

The FDA updated the recall classification to Class II, which means exposure to the product could “cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences,” but people are at a much lower risk of developing serious health problems.

Consumers who purchased the products are being asked to throw them away or take them back to the store where they bought them for a refund. Salmonella symptoms include headaches, fever, abdominal cramping, and diarrhea. Most people recover quickly, but those with weakened immune systems, the elderly, and pregnant women are at increased risk for severe illness. Anyone experiencing serious complications should contact their doctor.
