The Publix Super Markets grocery chain is recalling some of its pancake and waffle mixes because powdered milk in them may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Publix officials initiated the recall after the supplier of the powdered milk notified them about the possible contamination, according to a notice posted on the grocery chain’s website Wednesday.
Consumers are urged to check their homes for the recalled pancake and waffle mixes. Anyone who has any of the recalled mixes should return them to the place of purchase for a refund or discard them. The recalled mixes should not be used.
The mixes were sold at Publix stores in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina.
Valley Milk Products LLC is not named in the Publix recall notice, but the recall is related to the recent government seizure of 4 million pounds of dry milk products from the milk cooperative’s Strasburg, VA, plant, a Publix spokeswoman said Wednesday evening.
