The food maker said that the Nesquik involved was in 10.9-, 21.8- and 40.7-ounce canisters produced in early October and sold across the country.
Nestle said it is issuing the recall after its ingredient supplier, Omaya Inc., recalled some of the calcium carbonate used in the product because of possible salmonella contamination. The company said there have been no reported illnesses associated with the product.
Salmonella can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. It can be life-threatening in infants, the elderly, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems.
The affected products have a "Best if sold by" date of October 2014. The recall includes the following products and unit production codes, which are on the bottom of the canister.
• 40.7-ounce canisters with UPC code 0 28000 68230 9 and production codes 2282574810 or 2282574820
• 21.8-ounce canisters with UPC code 0 28000 68090 9 and production codes 2278574810, 2278574820, 2279574810, 2279574820, 2284574820, 2284574830, 2285574810, 2285574820, 2287574820, 2289574810 or 2289574820
• 10.9-ounce canisters with UPC code 0 28000 67990 3 and production code 2278574810

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
