Some Popular Easter Candy Recalled

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - Easter is less than a month away and one treat has already been recalled. Zachary Confections announced a voluntary recall today of some lots of Zachary Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs. Officials say they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

The products in question were sold sections of Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. No locations on the Eastern Shore have been listed as receiving the possibly tainted products. Anyone who purchased the recalled products should either destroy them or return them to the store where they were purchased. The product is packaged in white egg crates with purple, green and yellow lettering. The units in question have the following information on them:
