A company has voluntarily recalled certain macaroni and cheese cups, which may be contaminated with Salmonella.

TreeHouse Foods Inc. found the milk powder used in the seasoning has the potential for Salmonella contamination. Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.

Walmart’s Great Value Macaroni & Cheese Original Cups were impacted. Other brands impacted included: Big Win Original Macaroni & Cheese Dinner and the Cheese Club Express Mac Macaroni & Cheese Dinner.

The UPC product numbers are:

  • 001182258403
  • 004149817167
  • 007874208249

No illnesses have been reported yet. In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. The elderly, infants and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The products were distributed nationwide. The company urged consumers to throw away any impacted products or return the products for a full refund. Have questions? Call 1-800-756-5781.
