FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Inmar Supply Chain Solutions, LLC (“Inmar”), is voluntarily recalling FDA regulated products* contained in pallets stored in Inmar’s Arlington, Texas facility between May 1, 2022, and June 30, 2023, the (“FDA Recalled Products”). The FDA Recalled Products were stored in this facility during a time when there may have been a pest control problem at the facility. In addition, because of recent unusually hot weather, the FDA Recalled Products may have been subjected to temperatures in excess of the storage condition instructions on the product labeling.
The Company has not received any customer complaints or reports of adverse events related to this recall.
Risk Statement: There are numerous hazards associated with rodents including the potential presence of Salmonella. Use or consumption of affected products may present risk of illness due to the potential presence of Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in infants, young children, frail or elderly people, pregnant persons, persons with pre- existent pathology (e.g., patients with cancer undergoing chemotherapy treatments, organ transplant recipient, etc.) and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis. Additionally, products stored under temperatures in excess of storage conditions instructions in the product labeling could potentially lead to decreased product effectiveness.
The FDA Recalled Products were sold to salvage buyers. Inmar has notified those salvage buyers by email and notified them to destroy any FDA Recalled Product.
