Various Ritz Cracker products are being voluntarily recalled throughout the United States, including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, due to concerns about possible Salmonella contamination.

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

Mars Food Canada has issued a voluntary withdrawl on two Uncle Ben's flavored rice products.

The inspection agency warns that foods contaminated with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but may still make you ill.

The recalled Ritz crackers were sold in packs of 180 grams, 30 X 42 grams and 42 grams.


There have not been any complaints of illness at this point, according to the company, who asks consumers to throw out any of these products. Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections.

Symptoms of salmonella poisoning often include fever, headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.

The recall affects the Fast & Fancy Broccoli and Cheddar and the Country Chicken flavoured rice products.

No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall. Long-term complications may include severe arthritis.
