Nestlé USA Announces Voluntary Recall of NESQUIK® Chocolate Powder
Nestlé USA has announced a voluntary recall of limited quantities of Nestlé NESQUIK® Chocolate Powder in the 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7 ounce containers. No other varieties of NESQUIK powder or any sizes or flavors of NESQUIK are affected by this recall.
Nestlé is removing the canisters from distribution because the company was notified by an ingredient supplier, Omya Inc. that it has issued a recall of certain lots of its ingredient, calcium carbonate due to possible presence of Salmonella. Calcium carbonate is used in NESQUIK as an ingredient.
The affected NESQUIK Chocolate Powder was produced during early October, 2012 and distributed nationally. All affected products have an expiration date of BEST BEFORE Oct 2014.
Consumers who may have purchased the affected NESQUIK Chocolate Powder should not consume it, but instead should return it to the place of purchase for a full refund or contact Nestlé Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679.
