Walmart, H-E-B, Food Lion Swiss rolls recalled over salmonella concerns

Zlati Meyer

The company that makes Swiss rolls sold in chains like Walmart, H-E-B and Food Lion is voluntarily recalling the desserts over possible salmonella contamination.

At issue are Swiss rolls sold under the brand names of Mrs. Freshley's, Food Lion, H-E-B, Baker's Treat, Market Square and Great Value. 

Salmonella causes diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. Most at risk are babies, the elderly and people with impaired immune systems.

Flowers Foods also is voluntarily recalling its Captain John Derst's Old Fashioned Bread -- sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina -- for the same reason.

The Thomasville, Ga.,-based company said both the swirled cakes and bread are made with whey powder, which may contain salmonella, though no illnesses have been reported in connection with the recalled foods.
