Chocolate milk fans take note: Nestle announced a voluntary recall of its chocolate powder because of concerns it might be contaminated with salmonella.The recall affects chocolate powder that was produced in early October and distributed nationally. It affects the Nestle Nesquik Chocolate Powder in the 10.9, 21.8 and 40.7 ounce canisters, according to a release from the Glendale-based company (via City News Service).

So far no illnesses have been reported, but the company wanted to recall chocolate powder because an ingredient supplier notified Nestle that there was an issue with the calcium carbonate, an ingredient that makes it into Nesquik.

"Nestle is removing the canisters from distribution because the company was notified by an ingredient supplier, Omya Inc., that it has issued a recall of certain lots of its ingredient, calcium carbonate, due to possible presence of salmonella,'' according to the Nestle statement.
