No other sizes other than these listed above are involved in the recall.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.  Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.  In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.  Fore more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Website at http://www.cdc.gov.
Sturm Foods, Inc has not received any reports of illnesses in connection with the items listed above to date, and no other Sturm Foods, Inc products are affected by this action.

The FDA and other regulatory agencies have indicated that Plainview Milk Products Cooperative is being investigated for potential Salmonella contamination.  Plainview Milk Products Cooperative supplied Sturm Foods, Inc with the instant nonfat dry milk used in the above referenced one-quart instant nonfat dry milk products, prompting the voluntary recall.

Consumers who have purchased the items listed above should not consume this product and should return it to the store of purchase for a full refund or replacement.  Consumers with questions or concerns about the recall may contact Consumer Affairs at: (866) 596-2736
