Goldfish crackers recalled

Pepperidge Farm announced Monday that it is recalling several Goldfish crackers products in the United States due to concerns about possible salmonella contamination.

"Pepperidge Farm initiated an investigation and, out of an abundance of caution, is voluntarily recalling four varieties of Goldfish crackers," the company said in a news release.

A supplier has recalled its whey powder because of the potential presence of the bacterium salmonella. Pepperidge Farm uses that whey powder to season four of its Goldfish varieties: Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Flavor Blasted Sour Cream & Onion, Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar, and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel.

"Consumers who have purchased these products should not eat them," the company said. "Recalled product should be discarded or may be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund."

Salmonella can cause an infection with symptoms of diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. But no one has reported getting sick in connection with these crackers, Pepperidge Farm said.

Just a day earlier, Mondelēz Global voluntarily recalled several Ritz Cracker snacks due to possible salmonella contamination in the whey powder it uses. It is not clear if Pepperidge Farm and Mondelēz Global use the same whey powder supplier.
