Nesquik chocolate Powder on recall - salmonella
November 8, 2012 - Nestlé USA announced the voluntary recall of limited quantities of Nestlé NESQUIK® Chocolate Powder in the 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7 ounce canisters. The voluntary recall is limited to only NESQUIK Chocolate Powder, which was distributed nationally. No other varieties of NESQUIK powder or any sizes or flavors of NESQUIK ready-to-drink 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. There have been no reports of any illnesses or adverse health effects associated with the affected product.
To ensure the safety of consumers, Nestlé is recalling selected NESQUIK Chocolate Powder. The recall is limited to the following sizes, UPC and production codes of NESQUIK Chocolate Powder:
Size UPC Code Production Codes
40.7 oz. Chocolate (72 servings) 0 28000 68230 9 2282574810
21.8 oz. Chocolate (38 servings) 0 28000 68090 9 2278574810
10.9 oz. Chocolate (19 servings) 0 28000 67990 3 2278574810
The affected NESQUIK Chocolate Powder was produced during early October, 2012. To locate the production code, consumers should look on the bottom of the canister, adjacent to the consumer expiration date. 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.
Here's to winning entries!

Now that's a quick recall. If they were just produced early last month. Many of them likely never made it to store shelves yet!

Thanks, Betty. I checked my cupboards, and only have Swiss Miss and Beaumont (Aldi) hot chocolate mixes.
I love hot chocolate, made with 2% milk and added multi-colored mini marshmallows all winter long!
Too bad about the recalls, and also too bad about Hostess going out of business. Seems like Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes were around all my life.
