After finding out that a dairy supplier had contaminated equipment, Dunkin’ Donuts is temporarily recalling its hot chocolate and Dunkaccino beverages. The Sydney Morning Herald has more:

The Canton, Massachusetts-based company said on Tuesday none of its products was contaminated and the withdrawal of the beverages from its stores was a precaution to ensure customer safety. It has about 6,400 franchised restaurants in the United States and says it serves three million customers a day.

Plainview, Minnesota, supplier Plainview Milk Products Cooperative announced it had voluntarily recalled its instant non-fat dried milk and whey protein because of potential salmonella bacteria contamination. It says there were no reported illnesses.

Dunkin’ Donuts says it expects to resume hot chocolate and Dunkaccino sales shortly. The chain sells 52 types of doughnuts and more than a dozen coffee drinks.
