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 NJ.com, 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.
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.[asset removed due to syndication rights]
