Two wholesalers have confirmed that they have distributed no products currently under recall due to salmonella contamination in the whey powder.

Pepperidge Farm in the United States voluntarily recalled more than three million packages of Goldfish crackers and Mondelez International recalled 16 varieties of its Ritz Cracker products.

Bermuda General Agency imports Ritz products while Bermuda Imports and Exports brings in Goldfish crackers.

Both companies confirmed that they have not distributed any products that were produced on the dates under question.

While both wholesalers supply most of the major supermarkets in Bermuda, some smaller stores that bring in their own products could still be at risk.

The Department of Health said that “officials are investigating”. US authorities have warned customers to look out for salmonella symptoms including diarrhoea, fever, abdominal cramps and vomiting.

Symptoms are likely to arise within six to 48 hours of consumption. Illness can last between four and seven days and is typically resolved without treatment. Regular handwashing is the best way to avoid contracting salmonella.
