Ritz and Goldfish crackers, Swiss rolls among growing list of recalls for possible salmonella contamination

in Breaking News/Food

Ritz crackers, Goldfish crackers and Swiss rolls are all part of a growing list of recalled foods related to possible salmonella contamination.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service issued a public health alert Friday for foods that contain whey powder, a common ingredient used in a number of foods to modify texture.

The latest foods to be recalled:

Pepperidge Farm Goldfish

Pepperidge Farm issued a recall for four varieties of its Goldfish crackers that were distributed nationwide. The recalled crackers include Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Flavor Blasted Sour Cream & Onion, Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel.

Whey powder is an ingredient in a seasoning “applied to” these items, according to the company.

Consumers with these products on their shelves should throw them away or return them to the store for a refund. You can also request a refund online.

Ritz Crackers

Mondelēz Global LLC recalled certain Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and other Ritz Bits products because they contain whey powder that has been recalled for possible salmonella contamination. The products are available nationwide.

The voluntary recall is a precaution, as no complaints of illness have been reported, the company said.

The recalled product list includes Ritz Bits cheese cracker sandwiches and mixed cookie and cracker variety packs.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 844-366-1171.

Swiss rolls

Flowers Foods recalled Swiss rolls because they may be contaminated with salmonella. The ingredient whey powder was recalled for possible contamination. There have been no reports of illness from Swiss rolls, according to the company.

Swiss rolls sold nationwide under the brand names Mrs. Freshley’s, Food Lion, H-E-B, Baker’s Treat, Market Square, and Great Value have been recalled.

Customers should throw the products away or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund, or call the Flower Foods Consumer Relations Center at 1-866-245-8921.

No illnesses have been reported so far due to these recalls but consumers are advised not to eat any of the recalled foods.

Additional products could be recalled in the coming days.
