Farm Pepperidge Recalls 4 Different Types of Goldfish Crackers Due to Salmonella Risk


Goldfish Cracker enthusiasts may need to take a snack break because of fears that a component might be contaminated with salmonella.

The maker of small, golden crackers, Pepperidge Farm, announced on Monday that they remember four different flavors of their product.

In a statement published by the company on their website, the company explained that one of its ingredients warned that whey powder in spices used in four flavors was subject to revocation.

"The Pepperidge Farm has launched a survey and, from plenty of attention, voluntarily reminds four varieties Goldfish crackers, "the statement said." The products were distributed throughout the United States. No diseases have been reported. No other Pepperidge Farm product in the US is subject to this revocation. "

A representative of the company did not respond directly to PEOPLE's request for a comment.

The four products include Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Blasted Sour Cream & Onion, Goldfish made with Xtra Cheddar wholemeal and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel.

Pepperidge Farm encourages customers to avoid eating snacks if they bought them. The company recommends to drop the withdrawn or return snacks. They offer a return to their website.

This is not the first whey powder product that has recently been revoked. Some Ritz Crackers products were voluntarily recovered as a component used to be contaminated with salmonella.

Mondelēz Global LLC, the snack company, said on Saturday that 16 products – including Ritz Cheese Sandwiches and Ritz Bitz Cheese – are taken from store shelves in the US, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands, which used to make them have a "potential presence" of the infection.

Although no diseases have been reported in relation to the products, the company issues the recall as a precaution, they said in a statement.

"Consumers who have these products should not eat them and should reject any products they have," said Mondelēz Global.

Those who have questions or concerns about the recall can contact the company at 800-679-1791.

"Most salmonella infected people develop diarrhea, fever and cramps in the abdomen 12 to 72 hours after infection," according to the CDC. "Disease usually lasts for 4 to 7 days and most people recover without treatment."
