The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced today that Robert’s American Gourmet Food, Inc. is recalling all Veggie Booty Snack Food for potential Salmonella contamination. The recall announcement was made after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identified 51 people in 17 states with Salmonella infections that were traced to the consumption of Veggie Booty. According to the FDA announcement, the victims of the Salmonella outbreak are predominantly children three years of age or younger.
Veggie Booty was distributed nationwide and in Canada in supermarkets, vending machines, health food stores, and through online and telephone orders. The product was sold in 4 oz., 1 oz., and 1/2 oz. bags.
Marler Clark has represented thousands of victims of Salmonella outbreaks, and is investigating claims that may be related to the Salmonella outbreak traced to Veggie Booty.
