Ritz Cracker Products Recalled Due To Potential Salmonella Presence

Ritz Crackers and Ritz Bits are just a couple of the products undergoing a recall from parent company Mondelēz Global LLC.

Flowers Foods said they, too, issued their recall after a third-party whey powder manufacturer and supplier recalled the ingredient.

No Name brand chicken nuggets and Christie brand Ritz crackers have been recalled nationwide due to possible Salmonella contamination.

In a statement, the company said it is conducting the recalls "out of an abundance of caution".

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly, and those with weakened immune systems.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

There have been no complaints of illness reported to Mondelēz Global in connection with the products.

If you believe you became sick from consuming a recalled product, seek medical advice.

They added that they are working with a "limited number" of impacted retailers to have the products removed from store shelves. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 1-844-366-1171, 24 hours a day for more information.
