Ritz recall: Certain snacks recalled due to salmonella concerns

Several Ritz Cracker products are being recalled nationwide due to possible Salmonella contamination.

Consumers who have these products should not eat them, and should discard any products they may have.

Mars Food Canada also stated that there have been no reports of illnesses related to the recalled products.

Mondelēz Canada recalled the Christie brand Ritz Bits due to a recall in another country.

Snack manufacturer Mondelez Global has issued a recall of packages of Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bits across the US, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

Officials say food contaminated with Salmonella may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. While not usually life-threatening, the infection can pose serious risks to young children, older adults and people with weak immune systems. Symptoms of salmonella include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The company said there has been no illnesses or complaints, but it is issuing the recall as a precaution.

Anyone wanting more information can call Mondelēz Global LLC at 1-844-366-1171.
