recalls some Ritz crackers that were made with an ingredient that could have salmonella bacteria.
Mondelez said the supplier of whey powder for its crackers recalled the ingredients' possible presence of the bacteria.
There were no complaints about diseases reported to Mondelez in connection with the crackers, the company said. "The company carries out this recall as a precaution," it said in a statement.
Salmonella causes symptoms such as fever, diarrhea and vomiting. Most people recover, but it can be fatal in children, the elderly or people with a weak immune system.
The bacteria were responsible for at least eight more multistationary outbreaks of food-borne illness this year.
