Nestle said that it was a voluntary recall by the company and added that the step was taken after one of the suppliers, Omya Inc, had earlier initiated a recall of its calcium carbonate food additive over fears of salmonella contamination.

A spokesperson for Nestle said that there have been no reports of food borne diseases caused by the product. "We apologize to our consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this incident", a statement by Nestle USA said.
