If you feel sick after consuming one of these products, you're advised to call your doctor. Otherwise, you should check for the products in your home and either throw them out or return them to where you bought them.

"Healthy people may experience short-term symptoms such as fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis," the recall notice outlines.
Apparently, Salmonella doesn't always make food look or smell spoiled, so it can be hard to detect.
