Goldfish Crackers Recalled Over Salmonella Concerns
Another day, another food recall. This time the popular Pepperidge Farms Goldfish crackers are being voluntarily pulled from store shelves.
Pepperidge Farms has announced that four varieties of their Goldfish crackers may be contaminated with salmonella.
The company released a statement on Monday July 23 saying that the whey powder in their seasoning may contain Salmonella.
Pepperidge Farm must use the same whey powder distributor as Ritz crackers, who recently recalled dozens of their cracker varieties for the very same reason.
Seems the whey powder they use was recalled by the manufacturer for possible Salmonella contamination, leading to several companies pulling products from store shelves nationwide.
For Pepperidge Farms those products are
- Flavor Blasted® Xtra Cheddar
- Flavor Blasted® Sour Cream & Onion
- Goldfish® Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar
- Goldfish® Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel
Many different packaging options for these four types of crackers are part of the recall with the full list located here.
No illnesses have been reported and no other Pepperidge Farms products are part of the recall.
Anyone with these crackers at home are advised not to eat them but to discard them immediately and contact Pepperidge Farm for a full refund.
