A voluntary recall, recently issued by Armstrong Agencies Limited on Ritz Cracker Sandwiches and Ritz Bitz products, is being supported by Barbados' Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA).

A nationwide recall of certain Ritz products was announced Sunday after concerns of a potential presence of salmonella in one of its ingredients.

Ritz Crackers' maker recalled Ritz Bits Cheese, Ritz Cheese Cracker Sandwiches, Ritz Bacon Cracker Sandwiches with Cheese, Ritz Whole Wheat Cracker Sandwiches with White Cheddar Cheese, Ritz Everything Cracker Sandwiches with Cream Cheese, and Mixed Cookie Variety. The company says it is conducting this recall as a precaution, based on the ingredient supplier's recall.

According to the dispatch call obtained by ET, Lovato was unconscious when paramedics arrived. She joined Iggy Azalea on Sunday at California's Mid-State Fair, where the pair performed.

"Consumers who have these products should not eat them, and should discard any products they may have", the company said.

The investigation showed that several strains of the Salmonella bacteria are involved in the outbreaks: Salmonella Seftenberg, Salmonella Montevideo, Salmonella Infantis, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella Indiana, and Salmonella Litchfield. The company has also recalled Captain John Derst's Old Fashioned Bread.

Dozens of people have been hospitalized.

The symptoms of Salmonella, which is caused by bacteria, tend to overlap with signs of food poisoning, causing a person to experience fever and nausea, and have various gastrointestinal problems. The disease is foodborne, meaning one must ingest it to contract it, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Young children are particularly vulnerable because their immune systems are still developing, and they're more likely to put items like fingers and pacifiers in their mouths.
