Environmental Health Officers (EHO) from the DEH, have contacted all wholesalers and supermarkets, throughout the Cayman Islands, to ensure that they do not offer the affected product for sale to the public.

Hometown Food Company has asserted that there have not been any reported illnesses associated with the recall and it has recalled the product out of an abundance of caution.   

DEH urges members of the public, to refrain from using the affected item and instead return any previously bought packages to the point of purchase.

The department also encourages those who feel that they have become ill from food containing flour as an ingredient, to contact their medical provider immediately.  

Salmonella can cause severe infections in young children, seniors and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhoea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

For further information concerning local efforts, contact the DEH at 949-6696. For other details, visit the FDA website at www.fda.gov.
