Nestle Issues Voluntary Recall On Its Nesquik Chocolate Powder

Nestle Nesquik lovers need to check their recently bought Nesquik Chocolate Powder to ensure they don’t have one of the few recalled products.

According to Nestle USA, a voluntary recall is being down for limited amounts of the Nesquik Chocolate Powder, which is mixed with milk, over possible salmonella contamination.

The recall came after Nestle’s supplier, Omya, Inc., issued a recall of their own after the company spotted salmonella in the calcium carbonate, which is an ingredient seen in the Nesquik powder.

To date, nobody has reportedly gotten sick but consumers are advised to take necessary precautions. The affected containers – 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7 ounces – will have an October 2014 expiration date.

  1. class this as news you cannot use. there are lot numbers that will help identify whether a container is part of the recall. that information should be in the story. as it stands, all this story does is inspire worry without finishing the job by providing the complete information that is readily available. add the lot numbers. nestle has provided them

  2. Size
    40.7 oz. Chocolate (72 servings)
    UPC Code

    21.8 oz. Chocolate (38 servings)
    UPC Code
    0 28000 68090 9

  3. The article refers to “one of the few recalled products.” This is a vague and information free description, perhaps intended to reassure consumers of chocolate milk, but missing by a mile.

    How many? We know now (thanks to Michael, not the author/publisher!) the dates, UPC codes, and production codes. We may infer that Nestle knows exactly how many containers of each type/size were produced.

    But no one has told consumers how many items were produced for sale with the potentially contaminated food stuff. Why not? Faux journalism!

  4. No mention of the largest containers )48.7 oz. 85 servings) sold by Costco

  5. The article doesn’t give the details (bar codes, etc) of WHICH products. Thank God one of your readers posted it instead.

  6. Thank you for the information. Much needed.
