Nesquik mix recalled on salmonella risk

GLENDALE, Calif., Nov. 9 (UPI) -- Chocolate giant Nestle USA is recalling some of its Nesquik chocolate powder drink mix because it might have salmonella contamination, officials said.

Nestle voluntarily recalled its 10.9-ounce, 21.8-ounce and 40.7-ounce containers of chocolate Nesquik produced in October, NBC News reported.

The recall came after one of Nestle's suppliers, Omya Inc., recalled batches of calcium carbonate, a food additive, because of possible salmonella contamination. Calcium carbonate is used in a wide range of products, including toothpaste, chewing gum, candies, frostings and drink mixes.

People who bought the recalled Nesquik product should not consume it and should return it to the place of purchase for a refund, officials said.
