Seven Cadbury chocolate brands have been recalled due to salmonella
contamination. The Food Standards Agency, UK, has issued a Food Alert for
Action. Cadbury Schweppes responded by recalling the seven brands - they
also issued a press notice on June 23.

-- Food Alert for Action.
-- Cadbury Schweppes Press Release

Products should be returned to:

The following products are being recalled:

Over one million chocolate bars have already been removed from shelves in
the UK.

Apparently, a leaking pipe at Cadbury's Marlbrook chocolate factory in
Herefordshire caused the salmonella contamination. The fault in the pipe
was discovered in January, 2006. Samples were sent to an independent
laboratory which identified a rare strain of salmonella (salmonella
Montevideo). Cadbury Schweppes says this is purely a precautionary measure.
Levels of contamination, they say, are well below danger levels.

The company says people should not be alarmed if they have eaten any of
these seven brands. They can contact the company if they want a full
refund. The Food Standards Agency is carrying out its own investigation and
advises people not to consume the products. The Health Protection Agency is
carrying out a separate investigation.

Symptoms of Salmonella Gastroenteritis

-- Sudden onset of nausea
-- Abdominal cramping
-- Bloody diarrhea with mucous is common
Salmonellosis (salmonella infection) has no real cure, only the symptoms
can be treated. Less than 1% of cases are fatal. Symptoms usually appear
within 6-72 hours after the it enters your body. The patient usually
recovers after 5 to 7 days. The main thing to look out for is dehydration.
A complication can be when the infection spreads out from the intestines.

If your diarrhea is severe you will require rehydration.

Antibiotics are used when:
-- The illness persists
-- The infection spreads out from the intestines
