Goldfish Recall for Salmonella Risk

On July 23, 2018, a precautionary recall was announced by Pepperidge Farm® for 3.3 million packages of Goldfish Crackers due to a risk of Salmonella contamination. No illnesses were reported.

What is the Problem?

The recall was issued because Goldfish Crackers contain whey powder seasoning, an ingredient that was recalled by a third-party manufacturer due to a risk of food poisoning with Salmonella.

List of Recalled Goldfish Crackers

The following types of Goldfish Crackers were recalled:

  • Goldfish Flavor Blasted® Xtra Cheddar
  • Goldfish Flavor Blasted® Sour Cream & Onion
  • Goldfish® Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar
  • Goldfish® Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel

The recalled products were sold in bags, cardboard boxes, single-serve vending machine bags, multi-pack trays, individual sizes, resealable bags, and bulk cartons.

What Should I Do?

Pepperidge Farm is asking anyone who bought the recalled Goldfish to throw the products away or return them to the store for a refund.

Salmonella Recalls
