GLENDALE, Calif. (KABC) -- Concern over salmonella poisoning prompted Nestle to recall batches of Nesquik Chocolate Powder Thursday.
"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," Nestle said in a statement.
The recall is limited to the following sizes, UPC and production codes of Nesquik Chocolate Powder:

To locate the production code, look on the bottom of the canister, adjacent to the consumer expiration date. All affected products have an expiration date of BEST BEFORE Oct 2014.
The product can be brought to the place of purchase for a full refund, or contact Nestle Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679.
The voluntary recall is limited to only Nesquik Chocolate Powder, which was produced in early October and distributed nationally. No other varieties of Nesquik powder or any sizes or flavors of Nesquik ready-to-drink are affected by the recall, according to Glendale-based Nestle USA.
Nestle USA announced the voluntary recall Thursday.
