Diamond Crystal Brands Inc. Announces a Nationwide Recall of Products Containing Nonfat Dry Milk Because of Possible Health Risk

Diamond Crystal Brands Inc. of Savannah, Ga., is recalling products containing nonfat dry milk because its supplier, Plainview Milk Products Cooperative, Plainview, Minn., warned the company of a possible Salmonella contamination.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy individuals infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

Instant nonfat dry milk manufactured by Plainview Milk Products Cooperative during the past two years may possibly be contaminated with Salmonella. Nonfat dry milk from Plainview Milk Products Cooperative was used by Diamond Crystal Brands Inc. to make items distributed nationally in pouches to foodservice organizations.

These items include:
