It's International Self-Care Day and National Tequila Day. But a wrench has been thrown into this glorious drinking-in-the-name-of-health-celebration: Goldfish recently issued a national recall of four kinds of the smiling snack.

If your plans for self-care day or tequila day include Flavor Blasted Xtra Cheddar, Flavor Blasted Sour Cream & Onion, Goldfish Baked with Whole Grain Xtra Cheddar, and Goldfish Mix Xtra Cheddar + Pretzel, nix the plans. We want self-care to really mean something.

Goldfish, Ritz Crackers, and Swiss Rolls are voluntarily recalling their products because of an outbreak of salmonella in their supplier's whey powder. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) agency, issued a public health warning for Hungry Man Chipotle BBQ Sauced Boneless Chicken Wyngz for the same whey powder-sourced-salmonella concerns.

You can read the official public health statement from the FSIS here, and you can see what other companies have recalled their snacks here. This now concludes your snacktime PSA.
