Ratner's Cheese Blintzes Recalled

Manhattan, NY  (SafetyAlerts) - Ratner's Retail Foods is recalling all varieties of its Cheese blintzes which may be contaminated with Salmonella.  The New York City Department of Health (DOH) advised that two New Yorkers became ill and were diagnosed with Salmonellosis after eating the suspect food, which prompted the investigation.

According to the DOH persons whom have purchased any variety of Ratner's cheese blintzes from retail markets within the last six months may be at risk for developing salmonella if the blintzes are consumed.

Individuals who have purchased these blitzes are advised to destroy them or return them to the place of purchase.

The blintzes were sold in 13-ounce packages in stores in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York and Wisconsin.

Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, abdominal pain and vomiting. Healthy people typically recover in a few days, but salmonella can cause serious, even life-threatening infections in young children, the elderly and people with weak immune systems.
