Salud Natural Entrepreneur Inc. updates Nopalina Flax Seed Fiber recall due to possible Salmonella contamination

BALTIMORE, MD—Salud Natural Entrepreneur, Inc. of Waukegan, IL is voluntarily updating its January 28 recall of Nopalina Flax Seed Fiber (powder) and Nopalina Flax Seed Fiber (capsule) products due to possible Salmonella contamination in one of the ingredients used on the formula of Nopalina Flax Seed Fiber.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. Consumers of these products who are experiencing symptoms of Salmonella should contact their health care provider. To date, there are no reports of illnesses associated with the products.
