Salmonella isn’t too dangerous for everyone that contracts it. According to the FDA, a generally healthy individual that contracts salmonella will suffer from “fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.” However, children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems could suffer fatal infections if they were to contract salmonella.

The recalled curry powder was distributed to New York City stores in Jamaica Queens, Jackson Heights, and the Bronx from April 17 - April 21, 2020. If you purchased the recalled product, you’re urged to return it to your retailer for a full refund. In addition to the recall, New Hoque and Sons, Inc. has removed the recalled curry powder from store shelves. So far no illnesses have been reported.
