Got Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal? It's Under Recall

While readings the news online I stumbled across this news release that has quietly been spread but not loud enough! So many people use these little instant oatmeal packs for their babies and toddlers (we won't discuss the sugar content of these foods in todays article...) but it's something you'll want to check your cupboards for. Here is a snippet of the recall notice;

Malt-O-Meal Co. is voluntarily recalling oatmeal that contains instant nonfat dry milk that may be contaminated with salmonella.

The instant nonfat dry milk came from Plainview Milk Products Cooperative of Minnesota which is recalling products made over the past two years due to the possible contamination. Many of Plainview's products were sold to other food makers.

Minneapolis-based Malt-O-Meal is recalling "Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal" sold in cartons and variety packs with best-if-used-by dates of June 30, 2009 to Oct. 28, 2010.
