If you were thinking of making yourself a nice comforting cup of cocoa to deal with last Friday's spinach recall, you might want to try a glass of wine instead. Glendale-based Nestle USA has recalled Nesquik, also for possible Salmonella contamination. (That Salmonella seriously gets around.)

The foodmaker said Thursday that it's recalling Nesquik sold in its 10.9-, 21.8- and 40.7-ounce canisters across the country in early October. The affected products have an expiration date of Oct. 2014.

Nestle says it is issuing the recall after its ingredient supplier recalled some of the calcium carbonate used in the product due to potential Salmonella contamination. Nestle asks consumers with the product to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund, or call Nestle Consumer Services at (800) 628-7679.

The company even said: "We apologize to our consumers and sincerely regret any inconvenience created by this incident. " Classy.

Nestle says there have been no reported illnesses associated with the product.

But the Bunny isn't feeling so hot.
