Earlier this month, health officials announced a recall of popular sweets sold at Walmart stores across the US due to concerns about contamination with deadly bacteria.

Iowa-based Palmer Candy Company voluntarily recalled its ‘White Coated Confectionary Items’ after finding they could be contaminated with salmonella, a foodborne illness that infects 1.3 million Americans a year.

The FDA said that affected products – mixtures of snacks like pretzels, popcorn and chocolates – were distributed nationwide in Walmart, HyVee, Target, and Dollar General stores.

The products were sold under several brand names, including Walmart’s Great Value

The potentially harmful sweets are covered in a sugary coating that appears white, and come in a variety of packaging, such as bags, pouches, and tubs.

They were also sent to distributors in the following states: Alabama, California, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. 

No illnesses have been reported.  

The affected sweets were sold under brand names including Palmer Candy, Great Value, Casey’s, and Every True Tiger – a brand out of the University of Missouri.
