The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has ordered a recall of "Veggie Booty" snack foods, due to possible salmonella contamination. According to an FDA Press Release, the warning "is based on 52 reports of illness across 17 states, beginning in March 2007. Almost all the illnesses have occurred in children under 10 years old, with the most cases in toddlers." The snack product, manufactured by Robert's American Gourmet, is typically consumed by small children. The FDA is advising parents to throw out any "Veggie Booty" products, which are sold in foil bags (in one-half ounce, one ounce, and four ounce packages), and to seek medical care if they notice any signs of illness in their children.
