Quaker Oats just expanded their recall to include dozens of additional cereals, bars, oatmeals and snacks, according to the Food and Drug Administration. This is due to a potential Salmonella contamination.

The original recall, published in December, involved over 40 products like the brand’s popular Chewy granola bars and on-the-go snack mixes. Now, more pantry staples are being added to the recall, including Cap’n Crunch cereals, Cap’n Crunch cereal bars, Gatorade protein bars and Quaker granola yogurt bars. See the complete list of added products here.

After checking the recall, if you have any of the above products and it matches the listed information, dispose of it as soon as possible. You can also request reimbursement for your purchase through Quaker’s official recall website.

Common symptoms of Salmonella infection include headaches, nausea and vomiting, fever and diarrhea. If you’re pregnant, over age 65 or have a compromised immune system, your symptoms may be more serious, so contact your health care provider immediately if you could be infected after consuming one of the above products. Young children can also experience more severe illness.
