GLENDALE, Calif. -- Nestle USA is recalling some of its Nesquik chocolate powder because of a possible salmonella risk.

The food maker said today that the Nesquik involved was in 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7-ounce canisters produced in early October and sold at retailers across the country.

Nestle says it is issuing the recall after its ingredient supplier, Omaya Inc., decided to recall some of the calcium carbonate used in the product due to possible Salmonella contamination. The company says there are no reported illnesses associated with the product.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. It can be life-threatening in infants, the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

The affected products have a "Best if sold by" date of October 2014.

The recall includes the following products and unit production codes, which are located on the bottom of the canister:

40.7 ounce powder with UPC 0 28000 68230 9 2282574810 2282574820
21.8 ounce powder with UPC 0 28000 68090 9 2278574810 2278574820 2279574810 2279574820 2284574820 2284574830 2285574810 2285574820 2287574820 2289574810 2289574820
10.9 ounce powder with UPC 0 28000 67990 3 2278574810

No other varieties of Nesquik powder are in the recall.

Nestle said that consumers who bought the affected Nesquik products should not use it and can return it for a refund or contact Nestle Consumer Services at 800-628-7679.

Let's see. Salmonella poisoning vs. chocolate milk...

Sorry, I'm going to take my chances.

Why would that scare you? It's a powder that you keep in a closed container. :p

If that scares you, then you should see some of the old preserves I used to eat. The older canning methods keep indefinitely as long as it was done properly.

It's dry powder, it doesn't really spoil. Things like soda and canned goods last for years too. I still have a box of tea bags I bought in 1997. :laugh:

i hate it since it was called nesquik instead of just quik it was better at just quik and it tasted better at quik and was yummy and i used to drink quik. i drank strawberry quick and chockolate quik and sometimes both chockolate quick and strawberry quick together but now i dont drink quik cuz they stopped it and all we got is nesquik knockoff quik and they shut regular quik down.

Nestle has already cemented their reputation as one of the world's most evil companies with their other milk products.
Is this just another nail in the coffin?

Are you inebriated? Or perhaps forgot to take your meds?
