A wave of recent salmonella outbreaks involving Goldfish Crackers, Hungry Man Frozen Dinners, Swiss Rolls and Ritz Crackers and Ritz Bits has been linked to a single contaminated ingredient – whey powder from a Wisconsin firm known as Associated Milk Producers Inc. (AMPI).

In response to the numerous salmonella outbreaks, AMPI has recalled all of its whey powder nationwide.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) said in a statement Tuesday that no salmonella infections or other adverse events have been linked to any of the recalls to date, but that more recalls are likely as all the companies that do business with Associated Milk Producers are made aware of the situation.

FDA also emphasized that all the recalls have been “issued out of an abundance of caution” and not due to evidence of actual contamination.

“To date there have been no cases of illnesses associated with any of these recalled products,” the agency said.
