The company says that, while there have been no complaints about illness related to the crackers, they are conducting the recall as a precaution.

Various Ritz brand products that contain cheese, including Ritz Crackers and Ritz Bits, are being voluntarily recalled over concerns about possible Salmonella contamination.

More than a dozen products are part of the recall, including various packages of Ritz Bits Cheese and Ritz Cheese Cracker Sandwiches.

See a full list of the recalled products below. The US Food and Drug Administration has been informed of the recall.

Salmonella is a bacteria that causes diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection.

Young children, pregnant women, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems may contract serious and sometimes deadly infections, the agency said. The whey powder manufacturer has also recalled its product.

Customers who purchased either product can return the products to the store from which they were purchased. Any questions should be directed to the company at 1-844-366-1171.
