A wide range of products with powdered milk that may be contaminated with salmonella have been recalled, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says.
The companies and their recalled items include: Valley Milk Products -- nonfat high heat milk powder and sweet cream buttermilk powder; Shearer's Foods, LLC -- kettle chips, potato chips, and nacho chips; Deep River Snacks -- kettle chips; Boulder Brands, Inc. -- macaroni and cheese; TreeHouse Foods, Inc. -- macaroni and cheese; New Hope Mills -- crepe mix; Fourth Street Barbecue Inc. -- macaroni and cheese; Brand Castle, LLC -- monkey bread mix.
Salmonella infection can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Most people recover, but infants, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are at increased risk of serious complications from such infections, CNN reported.
To date, no illnesses associated with the recalled products have been reported.
Last week, possible salmonella contamination led Publix Super Markets to recall three of its waffle and pancake mixes sold at stores in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, CNN reported.
