Dry milk might keep for a while, but so might salmonella

July 9, 2009 |  4:31 pm

The recalls are dwarfed by those recent, and now almost infamous, ones prompted by the Peanut Corp. of America. But they're starting to add up. Plainview Milk Products Cooperative of Plainview, Minn., has started another recall with ripple effects, this one of nonfat dried milk, whey protein and thickening agents sold over the last two years.

The reason? Possible salmonella contamination.

No illnesses have been linked to any of the products, which aren't sold directly to consumers but to companies with which the cooperative does business.

But because dry milk lasts a while, one of its main selling points after all, some could conceivably be in your cabinet.

Here's the news release from the company and the announcement on the FDA's website.

Bought any Turkey Gravy Mix from Gold Medal?

Popcorn Seasoning Movie Theater Butter Flavored from Kroger?

Hearty Traditions Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal from Malt-O-Meal?

International Drinking Cocoa, Madagascar Vanilla, from Land O Lakes?
 
Nonfat dry milk products sold by Meijer and Giant, among others?

Or one of many products offered by Max Muscle Sports Nutrition?

It might be on the list. Even if not, you might want to check back. The number of products seems to be growing -- as such lists do.
