Ritz cracker products recalled amid fears of salmonella

Mondelēz Global LLC said that Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bits snacks contain the whey powder as an ingredient, which their supplier has now recalled due to "the potential presence of Salmonella".

While the rice products are sold across Canada, the recall affects only products sold in eastern Canada.

The inspection agency warns that foods contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but may still make you ill.

CFIA said the recall was prompted by a recall in another country.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall.

"Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections", the agency warns.

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

Consumers are advised to discard any products they may have.

Two flavours of Uncle Ben's rice products are being recalled over fears of Salmonella contamination among the seasoning pouches. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
