ORLANDO, Fla. – According to the Food and Drug Administration, Pharmavite LLC has issued a recall for several Nature Made products due to the possible presence of salmonella or staph aureus toxin.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious or even fatal infections in children and frail or elderly people that have weak immune systems. 

People infected with salmonella often experience fever, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea, which can be bloody.

In rare and more serious cases, the salmonella organism can enter the bloodstream and cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

The presence of staph aureus may lead to food poisoning and tends to happen rapidly.

Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, retching, abdominal cramping, and prostration. Headache, muscle cramping, and transient changes in blood pressure and pulse rate may occur in more serious cases.
