Cnn: Pastries, cakes, cookies, pies and other baked goods made by Rolf's Patisserie in Chicago are being recalled this Christmas Eve, over concerns that the sweets may contain Staphylococcus Aureus bacteria.


In a written statement released Friday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the pastries have already sickened 100 people in Illinois and Wisconsin; and that any Rolf's product manufactured after November 1st may be contaminated as well.

Rolf's line of baked goods is sold online and distributed through national wholesale and retail chains, the FDA says, and may have been repackaged and sold under different brand names in supermarkets and through caterers and large institutions, such as nursing homes. The FDA recommends checking labels closely, and if you're unsure whether the products were made by Rolf's, calling the store where they were purchased.

If you have purchased a Rolf's product made after November 1st, the recall notice recommends trashing the baked goods in a sealed container, so that children and animals cannot get to them.

Staphylococcus Aureus is one of many bacteria responsible for GI illness. Symptoms of S. aureus food poisoning include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps. Most infected people will recover within two days of ingesting the bacteria, but the FDA says children and elderly victims may need to be treated for dehydration.

Rolf's Patisserie employees would not comment on the recall.
