Goldfish is pulling a few of its products off of shelves in the latest of a series of product recalls that have affected other major brands like Ritz. That’s because the Goldfish recall, like the others so far, is tied to a supplier of a whey powder ingredient that may contain Salmonella.

Pepperidge Farms, the parent company of Goldfish, issued the voluntary recall upon notification that the whey powder used in their seasonings may have some Salmonella in them. Four different Goldfish products were affected, but no illnesses have yet to be reported.
Mondelez has also recalled several varieties of Ritz cracker sandwiches and Ritz Bitz because of the potential Salmonella contamination. Other brands affected by the Salmonella contamination include Swiss rolls produced for stores like H-E-B and Hungry Man Chipotle Sauced Boneless Chicken Wings, according to CNN.
Across all of these products, no illnesses have yet to be reported, so the recalls are all voluntary to prevent any possible ones from occurring. If you have any of the affected products, all the brands involved encourage you to throw them out. Goldfish also has an update on their site with more information, including a link for reimbursements.
