Cheese- and pizza-flavoured Ritz Bitz sandwiches, select Uncle Ben's rice products and Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Flavour Blasted Xtreme Cheddar Crackers were all recalled due to salmonella concerns.

The recall stretches across the United States, as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

The company, set up as a spin-off for Ritz and other marquee brands owned by Kraft Foods, such as Cadbury's chocolate and Oreo biscuits, announced the precautionary measure after one of Mondelez's suppliers recalled a possibly tainted ingredient.

In a series of voluntary product pulls ordered on Monday by both Pepperidge Farms and Mondelez, respectively, customers were advised to return potentially contaminated snacks to the place of purchase for a refund.

Giuliani has previously acknowledged that the recorded discussion related to the buying the story rights. In 2011, Manigault-Newman threatened to file a lawsuit over AMI's coverage of her brother's murder.

The company said it has not received any complaints or reports of its customers contracting Salmonella but made a decision to recall products voluntarily.

If you have any of these products in your home, the company says you should discard them as soon as possible.

A half-dozen strains of salmonella bacteria have sickened people starting in the middle of February, with 34 of the 212 sickened people hospitalized.

Birds can carry salmonella bacteria even though they may appear healthy and clean, and people can be infected by touching live poultry or objects in their environment, the health agency cautioned. A separate Salmonella outbreak, connected to pre-cut melon, affected at least 70 people across seven states. The disease is foodborne, meaning one must ingest it to contract it, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Children younger than 5 should not handle or touch live poultry without adult supervision. The views expressed therein are not necessarily those of stlucianewsonline.com, its sponsors or advertisers.
