Ritz Cracker products recalled over Salmonella fears

The company that manufactures Ritz announced a recall of some of its products due to a risk of salmonella contamination.

Snacks included in the recall include Ritz Bits Cheese Cracker Sandwiches in various packaging, Rits Cheeze Cracker Sandwiches, Ritz Bacon Cracker Sandwiches with Cheese Filling and Ritz Everything Crackers.

All the crackers involved in the recall have a best if used by date of between January 14, 2019 and April 19, 2019.

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

The recall comes amid a flurry of food product recalls affecting Loblaws and Ritz products.

Healthy people infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Loblaw Companies Limited issued the No Name brand recall following findings by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency during an investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak.

However, consumers should discard any of these products they may have, the company said.

Consumers with questions can call Mars Food at 1-800-734-3226 for further information.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
