One of the items on the Voluntary Recall list - 1.35 OZ Ritz Cheese Cracker Sandwiches

EAST HANOVER, NJ – Mondelēz Global LLC announced today a voluntary recall in the United States, including Puerto Rico & the U.S. Virgin Islands, of certain Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bits product. These products contain whey powder as an ingredient, which the whey powder supplier has recalled due to the potential presence of Salmonella.

Salmonella is a micro-organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in
young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

This recall is limited exclusively to the products listed in the grid (HERE), available at retail stores nationwide. No other Mondelēz Global LLC product is included in this recall.

There have been no complaints of illness reported to Mondelēz Global to date in
connection with these products. The company is conducting this recall as a precaution, based on the ingredient supplier’s recall.

Consumers who have these products should not eat them, and should discard any
products they may have. Consumers can contact the company at 1-844-366 -1171, 24 hours a day to get more information about the recall, and Consumer Relations specialists are available Monday-Friday, 9am to 6pm EST.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration.
