TreeHouse Foods Inc. joined several other companies caught up in secondary recalls because of Salmonella found in powdered milk has been used in their products. TreeHouse is recalling mac and cheese products — including Wal-Mart’s Great Value brand.
The Treehouse Foods recall notice, posted on the PRNewsWire.com website Sunday, does not mention Valley Milk Products LLC and the federal seizure of more than 4 million pounds of powdered milk after FDA found out the company knew its facility and products were testing positive for Salmonella.
However, other recalls in recent days do name the Strausburg, VA, milk cooperative.
Saturday two such recalls — the Brand Castle LLC recall of In the Mix brand monkey bread mix and the Shearer’s Foods LLC recall of seasoned potato chips and tortilla chips — both cited the Salmonella problem with powdered milk ingredients from secondary supplier Valley Milk Products LLC.

The TreeHouse Foods recall is for three different macaroni and cheese dinners and cups. The recalled products were distributed to retailers nationwide.
