Ritz Crackers Recall

About Salmonella

Salmonella infection (salmonellosis) is a common bacterial disease that affects the intestinal tract. The bacteria usually live in animal and human intestines and shed through feces. Consuming contaminated water or food spreads the infection to humans. Symptoms including diarrhea and abdominal cramping last two to seven days. Diarrhea may last up to 10 days, however, it may take several months before bowels return to normal. However, salmonella can develop into typhoid fever. This is a deadly disease. About 300 people get typhoid fever in the United States each year. About 22 million cases of typhoid fever and 200,000 related deaths occur worldwide each year.

Nationwide Ritz Cracker Recall

Mondelez Global recalled certain Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and other Ritz Bits products after their supplier realized that the whey powder used in crackers’ seasoning tested positive for salmonella. The Centers for Disease Control has not received any illness reports yet. There are 16 varieties involved in the Ritz Cracker recall.
