INDIANAPOLIS - An Indiana candymaker has withdrawn a voluntary recall after packages of chocolate-covered marshmallow eggs tested negative for salmonella.
Zachary Confections, based in Frankfort, announced the voluntary recall Wednesday after a sample taken during routine testing of the Easter treats revealed "the potential for salmonella contamination," according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
But third-party testing of the sample confirmed that salmonella was not present, the candymaker said Saturday.
No illnesses had been reported, and the FDA has taken the recall off its website.
"We are pleased to announce that the initial test result has been proven to be incorrect. All Zachary Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs in the marketplace are free from contaminants," Vice President of Operations George Anichini said in a statement.
