Snack Recalled After Causing Salmonella

A toddler in Santa Barbara County became ill with the rare Salmonella Wandsworth, which has been linked to a puffed rice and corn snack called Veggie Booty.

The child was not hospitalized and has recovered fully, and all packages of Veggie Booty are being recalled, according to a statement by county Health Officer Dr. Elliot Schulman.
