Fearful of possible salmonella contamination, Pepperidge Farm is launching a voluntary recall of its Goldfish Explosions of flavors – Xtreme Cheddar sold in Canada.
Pepperidge Farm was advised by one of its ingredient suppliers that the whey powder contained in a seasoning of its Goldfish crackers was being recalled due to the potential presence of Salmonella bacteria.
According to a publication on Campbell’s website, Pepperidge Farm’s parent company, no case of illness has been reported. An investigation is underway.
Two products are affected by the voluntary recall
- The 180-gram packs of Goldfish Explosion Flavor Crackers – Cheddar Xtreme (UPC code 14 100 08406), with expiry dates of January 20, 24 and 31, 2019 and February 2, 11 and 18, 2019.
- The 69-gram packs of the Goldfish Explosion Flavor Crackers – Cheddar Xtreme (UPC code 14 100 23245), whose expiry dates are January 25 and 26, 2019.
Consumers who have purchased these products should not consume them. The removed product should be discarded or returned to the store for a full refund. Customers are encouraged to contact Pepperidge Farm Customer Service for more information.
Food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria does not necessarily have visible discolouration or a suspicious smell, but can still make you sick.
