Salmonella Scare Prompts Easter Candy Recall
March 1, 2013


An Indiana candymaker has recalled packages of its chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs, which may contain salmonella.
Zachary Confections announced the voluntary recall of the Easter treats Wednesday after a sample taken during routine testing revealed “the potential for salmonella contamination,” according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The recall covers 5-ounce packages of the Easter sweets that are sold in white egg crates with purple, green and yellow lettering, carry the product number 31-797 and the best buy date of Feb. 14, 2014. The packages were shipped from the Frankfort, Ind., factory Feb. 21 and 22, and have been distributed to stores in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin, according to the FDA.
Zachary Confections has not received reports of illness linked to its products, according to the FDA but has suspended production while it investigates the potential contamination.

Zachary's Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs recalled over possible salmonella contamination
March 1, 2013

Zachary Confections, Inc. is voluntarily recalling certain lots of its Zachary Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs that were sold in Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin because they may be contaminated with salmonella.

"We are dedicated to manufacturing wholesome products for our customers," George Anichini, vice president of operations of Zachary Confections, said in a press release on the Food and Drug Administration website. "Consistent with that dedication, we are taking this voluntary action."

The candy manufacturer issued the notice after a random post-production test revealed a result suggesting that there was potential for contamination. The affected lots are packaged in white egg crates with purple, green and yellow lettering (pictured above). They have the specific case number of 1 00 75186 31797 3, the Unit UPC of 0 75186 15797 8 and are best before Feb. 14, 2012.

The specific code dates are D3245D, D3145E, F3145E, D3245E. The pertinent information can be found on the side panel next to the UPC bar code label.
 ::snipping2::
Production at the company has been halted while the FDA and the company investigate the source of the potential contamination.

Consumers who have the affected products should return them to the store they were purchased. Any additional questions can be answered by Zachary Confections Customer Service, who can be reached at (765) 654-8356 between the hours of 8:00am and 4:30pm EST.
