GLENDALE, Calif. - Nestle USA is recalling some of its Nesquik chocolate powder because of a possible salmonella risk.

The food maker said Thursday that the Nesquik involved was in 10.9-, 21.8- and 40.7-ounce canisters produced in early October and sold at retailers across the country.

Nestle says it is issuing the recall after its ingredient supplier, Omaya Inc., decided to recall some of the calcium carbonate used in the product due to possible Salmonella contamination. The company says there are no reported illnesses associated with the product.

Salmonella can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. It can be life-threatening in infants, the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.

2. Omaya, Inc. Looks like a front company. Can you say CHINESE????

I can't find anything about the company in regular google. Do they just ship stuff in from China and sell it as ingredients to Nestle?

3. This is happening right on top of Wreck-it Ralph? What a nightmare for Nestle.

The Nestle's Quicksand scene must have sold a lot of that powder.
