Crappy candy may give you the runs

Well, in the ongoing caravan of corporate food recalls, Hershey's has jumped onto the bandwagon with one of their own. Hershey's Canada has recalled it's chocolate and candy bars because they might be contaminated with salmonella.

The products included in the recall have date codes ranging from 6417 to 6455 and were manufactured between Oct. 15 and Nov. 10.

Salmonella can cause symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea. Which means that Oh Henry! bar will look just the same going into you the same as it does coming out.

Just stop eating crappy corporate candy. The salmonella isn't the most dangerous thing in it. Unfortunately, whereas foreign bacteria is categorized as a health hazard, they haven't come around to doing to same to high fructose corn syrup.
