TwinkieRecall_EmbeddedHostess Brands, L.L.C. on Jan. 9 issued a voluntary recall for its Holiday White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies, which are sold in multipack boxes. The action was taken “out of an abundance of caution” following a recall by Blommer Chocolate Co. of the confectionery coating used on the Twinkies product.

According to Hostess, the confectionery coating on the Holiday White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies contains milk powder ingredients recalled by Valley Milk Products, L.L.C. due to a concern of Salmonella contamination. No illnesses have been reported to date, and none of the confectionery coating sampled has tested positive for Salmonella, Hostess said.

In December, Valley Milk Products initiated a recall of 50-lb bags of nonfat milk powder and sweet cream buttermilk powder produced from Dec. 10, 2015, to July 5, 2016.
