What to do if you find using the contaminated product? 

Call your doctor if you suspect you got sick from eating a recalled food. Check to see if you have any of the recalled products in your home or business.
Do not eat any of the recalled items.
Products that have been recalled should be thrown away or returned to the store where they were acquired.

Cronobacter sakazakii-contaminated food may not appear or smell rotten, yet it can still make you sick. Although Cronobacter sakazakii is rarely associated with human sickness, it can cause serious or deadly infections in rare situations. Cronobacter sakazakii has been linked to severe intestine infection (necrotizing enterocolitis) and blood poisoning (sepsis), especially in infants, and has been linked to uncommon bloodstream and central nervous system infections.

Salmonella-contaminated food may not appear or smell rotten, yet it can still make you sick. Infections can be serious and even fatal in young children, pregnant women, the elderly, and persons with compromised immune systems. Fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea are common short-term symptoms in healthy people. Severe arthritis could be a long-term consequence.
