Pepperidge Farm is voluntarily recalling their Goldfish crackers due to a possible salmonella risk. The recall was issued after one of the company’s suppliers notified them that the whey powder used in their seasoning could be contaminated.
The recalled crackers include: Goldfish Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Goldfish Flavor Blasted Sour Cream & Onion, Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel.

Pepperidge Farm urges anyone who has bought the recalled item to return it for a full refund.
