PORTLAND, Ore. --
East coast grocery chains Giant Food and Stop & Shop on Wednesday issued a voluntary recall of some of their dried milk products over concerns about possible salmonella contamination through its manufacturer.
The items were produced with nonfat dried milk from Plainview Milk, which voluntarily recalled its instant nonfat dried milk and whey protein as well as some thickening agents earlier this week due to potential salmonella contamination.
The stores said there have been no reported cases of illness tied to consumption of the products.
Salmonella can cause serious infections, especially in children, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
Giant Food is recalling its 9.6 ounce-size Giant Brand Nonfat Dried Milk. Stop & Shop Supermarket Co. said it is recalling its 16- and 32-ounce size of Stop & Shop brand nonfat dried milk.
Both stores said customers who have purchased the products should discard any unused portions and bring their purchase receipt to a store for a refund.
