Pepperidge Farms is recalling 3.3 million units of Goldfish Crackers out of an abundance of caution after being alerted to the possible presence of salmonella in a key ingredient.
Here are the 4 types of Goldfish Crackers being recalled
As back-to-school season ramps up, this is now the second recall in a week involving a favorite kid’s snack because it may contain salmonella-tainted whey. (The first recall, which involved Ritz Crackers, was announced over the weekend.)
Four varieties of Goldfish Crackers are being recalled, according to a press release. They include Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Flavor Blasted Sour Cream & Onion, Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel.
Pepperidge Farms was alerted to the whey threat by one of its suppliers. Thankfully, no illnesses have been reported so far from eating these crackers.
However, this recall is tricky because the flavors listed above come in different packaging options.
So you’ll want to share this visual list that has UPC codes and sell-by dates from the packaging with your other parent friends:
If you have any of these products, don’t eat them. Return them to the store for a full refund or contact Pepperidge Farms online for reimbursement.
