Tiverton Dairy Farm Recalls Eggnog
A local dairy farm is recalling some of their eggnog because it may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The pint, quart and 1/2 gallon sizes of Arruda's eggnog with sell-by dates of 2/3/18 or 2/10/18 may be contaminated according to RIDOH. They were distributed to homes and retail outlets in eastern Rhode Island and the Fall River area.
The eggnogg gets rave reviews from consumers and is definitely very popular this time of year.
No illnesses from the eggnog have been reported, but anyone who has a potentially contaminated container is asked to return it to the store of purchase for a full refund.
The presence of the Salmonella bacteria was found by the Rhode Island Department of Health while conducting product sampling.
Salmonella can cause serious, sometimes fatal, infections in the very young and the elderly.
Though Arruda's hasn't made mention of the recall on their Facebook page, RIDOH says they are cooperating with them fully during the investigation into the contamination.
No other batches of eggnog are part of the recall and anyone with questions can contact Arruda's directly at (401) 624-8898.
