Ritz Cracker Recall Lawsuit

Ritz Cracker products recalled by snack food company Mondelez International after a whey powder supplier identified a potential salmonella risk.

The recall affects Ritz Crackers products sold in the U.S., including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, according to a press release issued by Mondelez on Saturday. The action was “being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,” the company said.

To date, no salmonella infections or other adverse events have been associated with the recall, according to the FDA.

Mondelez issued the recall after being informed by one of its suppliers that whey contained in the Ritz Crackers products may have been contaminated with salmonella.

The signs and symptoms of salmonella infection depend on the overall health of the infected person, as well as the particular serotype of the bacteria. In most cases, symptoms occur about 12-72 hours after ingestion of the bacteria, and include fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.
