Millions of packs of Goldfish Crackers, a favorite among small children, have been recalled due to possible salmonella contamination.

Pepperidge Farm is recalling around 3.3 million packs of the popular snack "out of an abundance of caution" because the company that supplies the whey powder for the snacks was alerted to the possible presence of salmonella.

The recall affects the following flavors with the codes listed here.

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

The company says that no illnesses have been reported, and no other Pepperidge Farm products have been affected by the recall.

The recall comes a day after Ritz announced a recall of 16 varieties of its crackers.

People infected by salmonella can experience fever, diarrhea (possibly bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can also reach the bloodstream and produce more severe problems.
