Consumers who bought the recalled product should throw it away.

Mondelez International Inc.is recalling some Ritz crackers made with an ingredient that could have salmonella bacteria.

Both recalls issued by the agency cite possible Salmonella contamination as the reason for the recall.

The affected products contain expiration dates between January 14, 2019 and April 13, 2019. There was a similar recalled issued earlier in the week regarding Hungry-Man chicken dinners.

Several varieties of Ritz cracker products have been recalled due to salmonella concerns.


Salmonella is a microorganism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Symptoms of Salmonella poisoning include fever, vomiting, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.

The company said there have been no reported illnesses, and that the recall is simply a precaution.

Anyone with questions can contact the company to speak to consumer relations specialists Monday through Friday from 9 a.m.to 6 p.m. ET at 1 (844) 366-1171.
