Salmonella is a foodborne illness whose symptoms include fever, pain and stomach cramps. The symptoms usually go away within four to seven days. 

There have been other pork recalls earlier this year. Fisher Packing Company recalled approximately 744 pounds of ready-to-eat pork products in September due to possible Listeria contamination. 

In August, Heatherfield Foods Inc. recalled 4,380 pounds of pork sausage products due to misbranding. The products had a gluten-free label on the packaging, but they had wheat on the list of ingredients, which is a form of gluten.
