Mondelez Global says it's voluntarily recalling some of its Ritz Cracker products over potential risk of salmonella. The company is recalling 16 varieties of Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bits products in the US. See the full list here, including the expiration dates. The products contain whey powder, which its supplier has recalled because of the potential presence of salmonella. Mondelez says no illnesses have been reported, per the AP. Symptoms of salmonella include fever, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea, though it can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in the young, elderly, or those with weakened immune systems.
