An Oatmeal recall is not something anyone would expect. But here we are. There is an oatmeal recall for some oatmeal products made with instant nonfat dried milk, whey protein, fruit stabilizers, and gums (thickening agents) manufactured by Plainview Milk Products Cooperative. The fear is that these recallled oatmeal products might be contaminated with salmonella.
In addition to Malt-O-Meal Hearty Traditions Maple & Brown Sugar Instant Oatmeal and other brands of instant oatmeal, other recall oatmeal products include some brands of non-fat dried milk powder, other drink mix products, and butter flavored toppings from Kroger. If you have any of these recalled products, get rid of them.
They oatmeal at issue comes in 13.8-ounce boxes with 10 instant oatmeal packets. It was distributed in stores in Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Our lawyers are not handling oatmeal recall cases. Although obviously it is early, our lawyers do not think a lot of lawsuits are going to come out of this oatmeal recall.
