The Associated Milk Producers, Inc. (AMPI), a company that sells whey powder to various food manufacturers issued a recall for a recent batch of whey.
There is concern that the batch may be contaminated with salmonella.
Because the whey powder is sold nationwide to food manufacturers, many of those companies are recalling products that used the specific whey being recalled.
All of these recalls are voluntary — there’s been no order for them to do so issued by any government agency.
No illnesses have been reported at this point from eating products that used the whey powder.
Collected below is a list of food products being recalled, along with links to more information on each recall:
- Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bits Sandwiches. These products were sold nationwide. You can read and download the full list of varieties being recalled here.
- Hungry Man Boneless Chicken Wyngz frozen dinners. This product was sold in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. More information on this recall is available here.
- Goldfish Crackers. Made by Pepperidge Farm and distributed nationwide, the recall involves four varieties of the crackers. The complete list is available here.
- Swiss Rolls, sold nationwide by Flower Foods under the brand names Mrs. Freshley’s, Food Lion, H-E-B, Baker’s Treat, Market Square, and Great Value. Full details are here.
