FULLERTON, Calif., Jan. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In cooperation with Palmer Candy Company, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions and Lucky stores in Southern California are voluntarily recalling an Assorted Candy Platter made with milk powder produced by Valley Milk Products LLC.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, particularly in young children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and/or abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism entering the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
The Assorted Candy Platter is 32 ounces and has a UPC Code Number of 0041144 078586, which can be found on the scale label.
