- The company that creates Ritz Cracker products has issued a voluntarily recall in the USA due to a possible Salmonella scare.

"As there are likely other food products made by other manufacturers that also use this common ingredient, there may be other recalls initiated in the coming days", Dr. Scott Gottlieb, commissioner of the FDA, said in a statement on Tuesday.

Easy access to information about potentially tainted consumable products should come first, but covering all the bases is usually a challenge in a crisis for brands both large and small.

This recall is being conducted with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The maker of the small, gold crackers, Pepperidge Farm, announced on Monday that they were recalling four different flavors of their product.

The concern is over the ingredient whey powder, which one of Mondelez's suppliers has recalled due to "the potential presence of Salmonella", according to Mondelez.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating several multistate outbreaks of Salmonella that they believe are linked to contact with live poultry in backyard flocks. Recalled product should be discarded or may be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund.

This recall is limited exclusively to these products available at retail stores nationwide. "All the products involved tested negative for salmonella as part of its routine testing program", a spokesperson emailed CBS MoneyWatch.

The FDA also earlier issued a recall for items that may contain the same contaminated whey powder. No deaths have been reported. Children younger than 5 should not handle or touch live poultry without adult supervision.
