Pepperidge Farm Just Recalled a Ton of Goldfish Crackers Over Salmonella Fears

And Ritz crackers were recalled this week, too.

Consider it sad news for anyone who was ever a kid: Pepperidge Farm has issued a recall for four of their Goldfish crackers because of a concern that there may be a presence of Salmonella in the seasoning. No illnesses have been reported.

The company has released a complete list of products that are of concern, which include:

* Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar

* Flavor Blasted Sour Cream & Onion

* Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar

* Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel

All sizes — including snack bags and large bulk boxes — are apparently under the recall; and all regions of the country may have been affected.

According to, the company issued a press release stating that they have initiated their own investigation, and "out of abundance of caution, is voluntarily recalling four varieties." Executives have said that they were notified that the whey powder in the seasoning is the ingredient that is causing the Salmonella risk.

It's been a rough week of recalls, including Ritz Crackers and Honey Smacks Cereal, both of which were also feared to have been contaminated with Salmonella.

Pepperidge Farms said people who purchased the crackers should not eat them and either throw them away or return them to the store for a refund. Customers can also contact Pepperidge Farms for a refund.

PRE-ORDER NOW Delish Cookbook, $30,

Joanna Saltz

Hometown: North Caldwell, NJ

7-second life story: I am best described as Captain Chaos—I love my family, my Delish team, loud music, science-fiction movies, laughing, and making people happy. I hate waiting, silence, and people who are downers.

Recipe I'm semi-famous for: Banana bread. And millionaire shortbread. And Texas sheet cake.

My drunk food is: French fries...If I'm remembering those drunken nights correctly.

Celebrity I’d love to have dinner with: Harrison Ford! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!

Cooking fail I'm most likely to commit: Not reading the recipe all the way through...Sometimes I get distracted. Also loading the dishwasher wrong.

If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life: Dairy Queen and Diet Coke. (I know that's two. Consequently that would also be my band name.)

Dish I'm notorious for making NOT delish: Pizza dough. An epic fail many times on many levels.
