Minnesota health officials are cautioning residents against eating a popular snack food. The Minnesota Department of Health says one individual became sick in December after eating the product that was sold at Sam's Club.

The department says many salmonella cases go unreported, so there may be more sick individuals than the one confirmed case.

What Is Salmonella?

The Mayo Clinic says, "Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. Salmonella bacteria typically live in animal and human intestines and are shed through stool (feces). Humans become infected most frequently through contaminated water or food."

The Department of Health says there are approximately 1,000 Salmonella infections reported each year in Minnesota.


Symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps and begin within 6 hours to 6 days after exposure. According to the CDC,  the infection lasts between 4 to 7 days and most people recover without treatment but some require hospitalization.
