FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- March 5, 2009 - On January 20, Energy Lane announced that none of it’s products were affected by the widely publicized recall of peanut butter and peanut butter paste processed at the Blakely, GA facility of Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), and linked to an outbreak of Salmonella related complaints and illnesses. On January 28, 2009, PCA unexpectedly expanded its voluntary recall to include all peanuts and peanut products processed at its Georgia facility. Although Energy Lane products contain no peanut butter or peanut butter paste sourced from PCA, one product does contain granulated peanuts or peanut pieces sourced from the PCA Georgia facility. However, as a result of PCA’s expanded recall, Energy Lane, Inc. has decided to voluntarily recall one of our products out of an abundance of caution. While Energy Lane, Inc. has determined to voluntarily participate in this recall, purely as a precautionary measure out of concern for our consumers and retail customers, we are confident that our products are safe. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product.  Energy Lane requires extensive laboratory testing of all ingredients used in every product and our finished products are also rigorously tested. As a result of our food safety protocols and extensive laboratory testing, no Salmonella contamination has been found in the product subject to this recall, but the company is taking this step to assure our consumers that food safety is our highest priority.

Only the following product is subject to this voluntary recall:

Pit bull Peanut Caramel Crunch Energy Bar
UNIT UPC: 8 91125 00001 9            
BOX UPC: 8 91125 00022 4          
CASE UPC: 8 91125 00050 7

No other Energy Lane product is affected by this recall. Energy Lane, Inc. apologizes to consumers and retail customers for the inconvenience resulting from this recall.
