Foods tainted with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but the bacteria can cause symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. People with weak immune systems are also particularly vulnerable to salmonella poisoning.

There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the Hershey products.
