Israel – Two children suspected of Salmonella infection after massive Strauss recall

Times of Israel

At least two children and one adult have sought out medical attention with suspected cases of salmonella poisoning following a massive recall of Strauss products ranging from chocolate to ice cream, pudding, cookies and other snacks over contamination fears.

According to Hebrew media reports, two children who recently sought care at the Assuta Medical Center in Ashdod are suspected of being poisoned by salmonella, pending full lab results. In addition, a man who was treated at an urgent care facility in Bnei Brak with relevant symptoms said that he had consumed some of the infected products recently.

Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz said Tuesday that the incident will be fully investigated and the factory will not be allowed to resume operation before it is fully cleared.
