FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Stillwater, MN (January 20, 2009) – CUB FOODS is voluntarily recalling five peanut butter cookie products made in its bakery departments because they may contain peanut butter that has the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

The products were sold at Cub Foods stores in Minnesota and Iowa and are marked with a sell-by-date through and including January 26, 2009. The identified items have not been directly linked to the salmonella outbreak and there have been no reported cases of the illness. However, because the safety of customers is a top priority and out of an abundance of caution, Cub Foods has voluntarily recalled the products.
