Step away from the chocolate milk. Nestle is recalling some batches on its Nesquik chocolate powder drink mix due to possible salmonella contamination.
10.9-ounce, 21.8-ounce and 40.7-ounce containers of the mix produced in early October have been voluntarily recalled after one of the Nestle’s suppliers, Omya Inc., recalled large batches of calcium carbonate, a food additive, also for salmonella. The ready-to-drink variety has not been recalled.
Symptoms of salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, cramps and fever 12 to 72 hours after eating the infected food. Children are particularly susceptible, and can require hospitalization.
Check your UPC code here. If you have a recalled canister, return it to the point of purchase for a refund or call Nestle Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679.
