Quaker Oats expanded its recent recall by adding dozens of additional granola and cereal products at risk for possible salmonella contamination.

Why it matters: The bacteria can "cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems," the company said in its revised recall notice.

  • Healthy people infected with salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, the recall said.

Flashback: The recall was first issued Dec. 15 for products sold nationwide at stores including Costco Wholesale, Walmart, Kroger and Target.

Details: The expanded recall list includes several types of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars, Cap'n Crunch Treat bars and oatmeal products.

  • The company posted a PDF listing the affected products on the FDA site that includes the product sizes, UPC codes and the best-before dates.
  • The list is also available at the Quaker Oats' recall site.

Be smart: Consumers who bought the affected products can return the products or request reimbursement on the recall website.

  • Products from the expanded recall were sold nationwide. Walmart's recall website says affected products were sold at all Walmart and Sam's Club locations.
