New Hope Mills Crepe Mix recalled
New Hope Mills is voluntarily recalling limited quantities of New Hope Crepe Mix due to a risk of salmonella contamination, according to a Department of Defense All Food and Drug Activity message sent Dec. 16. The crepe mix was made with recalled powdered milk ingredients from a secondary supplier.
The Defense Commissary Agency has publicized this product withdrawal to all its stores, said Richard Stith, lead consumer safety officer for DeCA headquarters at Fort Lee, Virginia. Whenever a commissary has a recalled or withdrawn product in its inventory, the product is immediately removed from store shelves.
The following product is affected by this recall:

Salmonella can be potentially life-threatening, especially to infants, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. It can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella's most common symptoms are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever. Symptoms usually develop between eight to 72 hours after consumption of the contaminated food and last about four to seven days.
Customers who purchased this product at the commissary should bring it back for a full refund.
