We're only telling you this because some people have Twinkies around the house that are older than they are.

Due to a concern over Salmonella contamination, Hostess Brands have recalled Holiday White Peppermint Hostess Twinkies sold in boxes with nine individually wrapped cakes.  The lot # printed on the side of the box is UPC 888109111571.

The coating of the Twinkies contain milk powder ingredients that have been recalled by Valley Milk Products.  Consumers are asked not to eat the product and to return them to the point of purchase for a full refund. For questions or concerns one can call 1-800-483-7253, Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm.
