There are certain things in life that many of us enjoy. One of those simple pleasures is snacking and we likely have a favorite snack that we eat on a regular basis. If your snack of choice is Goldfish crackers from Pepperidge Farm, you should be aware of a potentially serious problem. They just announced a voluntary recall of some 3.3 million goldfish units. The reason? Those crackers could be contaminated with salmonella.

There are 4 different flavors affected by this Goldfish crackers recall.
