EAST HANOVER — The New Jersey based company that makes Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and similar products announced a voluntary recall on Saturday.

The recall applies to products sold in the United States, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico because of the potential presence of Salmonella, according to a press release from Mondelez Global LLC. The products contain whey powder, which the supplier has recalled due to "the potential presence of Salmonella."

Salmonella can cause serious and even fatal infections in children, elderly people and those with weakened immune systems. The company said there have been no complaints of illness connected to the recalled product, and that the recall is being conducted "as a precaution, based on the ingredient supplier's recall."

The recalled products include:
