Houdini, Inc. is recalling all Wine Country Gift Baskets produced with Quaker Chewy Granola bars that has been recalled recently for potential contamination with Salmonella, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, while in rare circumstances, Salmonella infection can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

However, no illnesses have been reported to date related to the recalled products.

Recently, Quaker Oats, a unit of food and beverage major PepsiCo, Inc., recalled specific granola bars and cereal products due to possible salmonella contamination. The recalled foods include the Big Chewy Bars Chocolate Chip granola bars, Big Chewy granola bars variety pack, Chewy Bars and Dipps variety pack, Quaker Puffed Granola Apple Cinnamon Cereal, among others.

Quaker has also not received any confirmed reports of illness related to the products covered by its recall.
