 Nestle Recalls Nesquik Chocolate Powder Due to Salmonella Fears
Consumer goods giant Nestle has revealed that its USA unit has recalled more than 200,000 containers of its Nesquik chocolate powder following reports that it may be contaminated by salmonella.

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.
