Hostess has recalled its popular Holiday White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies.

The recall was issued after a milk powder used in the Twinkies coating tested positive for salmonella, the FDA reported.

The milk powder originally was recalled by Valley Milk Products, LLC.

There have been no reports of illnesses and none of the Twinkies coating tested positive for the bacteria, but Hostess said it’s issuing the recall “out of an abundance of caution.”
