LEWISTOWN, Pa. (CBSMiami/AP) — Asher’s Chocolates, sold nationwide, is recalling about 40 of its chocolate products over concerns they may be contaminated with Salmonella.

President and CEO Jeff Asher says in a statement that in the company’s 124 years of business, they’ve never had a salmonella issue.

A full list of the recalled products can be found on the Food and Drug Administration’s website . They include Asher’s Milk Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Mini Pretzels, Asher’s Almond Butter Crunch, and Asher’s Fall Prepack candies.

No illnesses have been reported from the chocolates.

Salmonella is a bacterial illness that can cause serious and potentially fatal infections in young children, older adults, and people with compromised immune systems. Most patients recover without treatment.
