(CNN) - Check your pantry - there's a recall this morning of a popular brand of chocolate drink mix.

Nestle is recalling more than 200,000 canisters of "Nesquik" because of possible salmonella contamination.

Nestle said the problem occurred on batches of the mix produced last month.

The bottom of the canisters say they are best to use by October, 2014

Two of the smaller containers have a promotion for the current Disney movie "Wreck-It Ralph" on the side.

Nestle said the problem was caused by ingredient supplier, Omya.

Nestle also said that there have been no reports of illness due to anyone who consumed the product.

Consumers who have the product can return to the place of purchase for a full refund.
