New Hoque and Sons, Inc. Salmonella Lawyer Update: Radhuni Curry Powder Recalled Due to Salmonella Concerns.
The company New Hoque and Sons, Inc. announced on May, 21, 2020 a recall of their 400g plastic bottles of Radhuni Curry Powder due to potential salmonella contamination. The contamination was discovered by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during a routine sampling program which revealed that some of the finished products contained the salmonella bacteria. As of the date of the recall no cases of salmonella have been linked to the recalled products.
The Radhuni Curry Powder products affected by the recall were physically removed from stores on May 14, 2020, before the recall was announced to the public. Production of the contaminated products has also been halted while the FDA and New Hoque and Sons, Inc. investigate the source of the contamination. The FDA is advising consumers who may have purchased the recalled products before they were removed from stores to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The contaminated products were distributed throughout New York to grocery stores in New York City, Jamaica, Jackson Heights, and the Bronx. New Hoque and Sons, Inc. distributed its products to the stores between 4/17/2020 and 4/21/2020. The products can be distinguished by their label “Radhuni Curry Powder” wrapped on the 400g clear, plastic bottles, with an expiration date of 01/02/2022, which can be found printed on the side of the container.
The FDA has advised consumers who purchased the recalled products to stay vigilant for symptoms of salmonellosis, an intestinal infection caused by salmonella bacteria. Symptoms of salmonellosis normally include ever, diarrhea which may be bloody, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. Salmonella bacteria multiply at an alarming rate, which can cause a person to begin feeling symptoms as early as 12 to 72 hours after ingesting the contaminated food. According to a national salmonella lawyer, Ron Simon, people with salmonella normally recover completely, although it may take several months before their bowel habits are entirely normal, in some more severe cases people can develop two more serious complications known as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Reiter’s Syndrome.
