Nestlé Recalling Nesquik Drink Mix Because Chocolate Milk Shouldn’t Contain Salmonella

(Nestlé USA)

Chocolatey Nesquik, that beloved after school treat, wouldn’t be such a delight if it contained say, salmonella. Nestlé has issued a voluntary recall of some of its batches of the chocolate drink mix because there’s the possibility of salmonella contamination in one of the ingredients used to make the powder.

No injuries or illnesses have been reported so far, says Nestlé. The company says in a press release that a supplier informed it of the possible contamination, resulting in a recall of limited quantities.

The recall is just for products sold in the U.S. and is limited to the 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7 ounce canisters of Nesquik Chocolate Powder, because the calcium carbonate in those powders could possibly contain salmonella. Some of the canisters feature the “Wreck It Ralph” character.

To find the production code, check the bottom of the canister, right next to the expiration date. Those included in the recall have an expiration date of Oct 2014. Check out the batch numbers for the affected products by clicking here.

If you think you’ve got some of the possibly tainted stuff, don’t drink it — return it to where you bought it for a refund or call Nestlé Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679.

Says the company:

Nestlé is dedicated to the health and safety of its consumers. For these reasons, the company initiated this voluntary recall. We apologize to our consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this incident.
