Hy-Vee, Schnucks grocery chains recall cream cheese from same supplier

Aldi’s recall comes after three regional grocery chains — Hornbacher’s, Hy-Vee and Schnucks —  recalled cream cheese supplied by Schreiber’s, of Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Schreiber was alerted by one of its suppliers that a whey protein concentrate used in the cream cheese may have been tainted with salmonella, a spokesperson for Schnucks told CBS News.
