Evening Rise Bread Co.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- January 19, 2009 -- Evening Rise Bread Co. of McCall, Idaho is recalling Peanut Butter Cookies and Peanut Butter Bars, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The peanut butter cookies and the peanut butter bars were manufactured using peanut butter recalled by Peanut Corporation of America because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
Peanut Butter Cookies and Peanut Butter Bars were distributed in retail stores through Evening Rise Bread Co., McCall, Idaho; First Idaho Bank, McCall, Idaho; Roadhouse Java, New Meadows, Idaho; Mountain Java Coffee Shop, McCall, Idaho; Common Ground Coffee Shop, McCall, Idaho; and Moxy Java Coffee Shop, McCall, Idaho.
The Cookies and Bars are individually packaged in clear Cellophane bags. The label is a sticker with the Evening Rise name and NO other additional information.
No known illness or injuries have been reported in connection to these Cookies and Bars. The recall was initiated after it was determined that Peanut product received was from Peanut Corporation of America. Evening Rise has informed FDA of its action and is fully cooperating with the agency.
Consumers who have purchased the Peanut Butter Cookies or Peanut Butter Bars are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-208-634-5031.
