Salmonella Alert! Possible Contamination Recalls Fresh Express Spinach and Nestle Nesquik
Careful what you eat! Two more popular products have been recalled due to possible salmonella contamination. Just six weeks after a nut butter recall that affected national food stores like Trader Joe’s, Target, and Whole Foods, two more major food corporations are pulling product. Here’s the lowdown: Everyday Health reports that Nestle USA is conducting a voluntary recall of its popular chocolate milk mix, Nesquik, due to possible contamination of the ingredient calcium carbonate, a common additive found in the likes of toothpaste and chewing gum. As of now no outbreaks are reported, but as a precaution Nestle is recalling 200,000 cans with a sell date of October 2014. The recall covers Nesquik product in 10.9-, 21.8-, and 40.7-ounce cans.
Additionally, as reported by Concord Patch, Fresh Express is recalling a limited number of its 9-ounce bags of spinach with a “use by” date of November 7th. The recall is due to a positive result for the bacteria in a random sampling test conducted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. No illnesses relating to this recall have yet to be reported.
So what do you do if you bought one of these products? You can expect a full refund from both manufacturers upon returning the contaminated product.
