ATTENTION PARENTS: Chocolate Nesquik Mix Recalled For Salmonella Risk

Posted: Updated:

NBCNEWS.COM - Chocolate giant Nestle USA is recalling some lots of its Nesquik chocolate powder drink mix because it might be contaminated with salmonella.

Containers of the popular children's drink mix produced in early October have been voluntarily recalled after one of the company's suppliers, Omya Inc., on Tuesday recalled large batches of calcium carbonate, a food additive, because of possible salmonella contamination.

Recalled Nesquik includes the 10.9-ounce, 21.8-ounce and 40.7-ounce canisters, which were distributed nationally. No other varieties of Nesquik powder or any sizes or flavors of Nesquik ready-to-drink products are affected by the recall.

Shoppers who bought the recalled Nesquik chocolate drink mix powder should not consume it, but should return the product to the place of purchase for a refund. People with questions should call Nestle Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679.

Omya Inc. recalled three lots of 50-pound, 2000-pound and 2,500-pound bags of food-grade limestone, also called calcium carbonate, produced at its Superior, Ariz., plant. click here to read more
