(Best Syndication News) - Nestlé USA announced the voluntary recall of certain packages of their Nestlé Nesquick chocolate powder drink mix. Ingredients from their supplier, Omya Inc., had calcium carbonate recalled because of possible Salmonella contamination. No illnesses have been reported in association with this recall, although the Nesquick product was distributed nationwide.

Only the powdered packages that came in the 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7 ounce canister sizes and have the “BEST BEFORE Oct 2014” are involved in the recall. The product was manufactured in early October 2012. Only the products with the matching UPC code and production codes are being recalled (see list below). All other package sizes or ones outside the Best-by date are not involved in the recall. Additionally, the ready-to-drink products are not involved in the recall.

Consumers who have the recalled Nesquick chocolate powder should not use it. Instead, they should take it back to the place where they bought it to get a full refund. Consumers can also contact Nestlé Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679 about this recall.

Salmonella infections usually last for around a week. Most common symptoms of the food borne illness are diarrhea, stomach cramps, and fever. Most people recover without any problem. However, in some cases, the infection could become severe and even deadly. The very young, the very old, pregnant women, and those with a compromised immune system are at an increased risk for a serious infection. People with symptoms should seek out medical care.
