Nestle Nesquik Chocolate Powder Recall

November 9, 2012

Nestle USA is recalling some of its Nesquik chocolate powder because of a possible salmonella risk.

The food maker said Thursday that the Nesquik involved was in 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7-ounce canisters produced in early October and sold at retailers across the country.

Nestle says it is issuing the recall after its ingredient supplier, Omaya Inc., decided to recall some of the calcium carbonate used in the product due to possible Salmonella contamination. The company says there are no reported illnesses associated with the product.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. It can be life-threatening in infants, the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

The affected products have a “Best if sold by” date of October 2014.The recall includes the following products and unit production codes, which are located on the bottom of the canister.

-40.7 ounce powder with UPC 0 28000 68230 9 2282574810 2282574820

-21.8 ounce powder with UPC 0 28000 68090 9 2278574810 2278574820 2279574810 2279574820 2284574820 2284574830 2285574810 2285574820 2287574820 2289574810 2289574820

Salmonella recalls are not uncommon in the food industry. Most recently a salmonella outbreak at the country’s largest organic peanut processing plant lead to a major recall of peanut butter and other nut products over the past two months.
