Stop & Shop-brand dried milk recalled

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the voluntary recall of Stop & Shop-brand non-fat dried milk because of possible contamination.

The FDA said the dried milk is part of a recall announced last week by the Plainview Milk Products Cooperative due to possible contamination by salmonella bacteria.

Stop & Shop is recalling all of its branded non-fat dried milk sold in 16- and 32-ounce sizes with the code FEB 0511S or FEB 1211S. Customers who purchased the product are advised to discard any unused portions and take their purchase receipt to any Stop & Shop store for a refund, the company said.

Consumers with questions can contact the company at 800-767-7772.
