Natural Selection Recalls Aunt Patty’s Cascade Trail Mix Because of Possible Health Risk
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- March 24, 2009 -- Natural Selection of Waldport, OR is recalling Aunt Patty’s Cascade Trail Mix, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The product was manufactured using peanuts recalled by Peanut Corporation of America because they may 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.
Aunt Patty’s Trail Mix was manufactured by Glory Bee Foods Inc. and sold through Natural Selection’s market in Waldport, OR between July 18, 2008 and March 1, 2009. The trail mix was packaged in 4 oz., 8 oz., and 16 oz. plastic containers and labeled with “Cascade Organic Trail Mix Natural Selection PO Box 2380 Waldport, OR 97394” and the following product codes 8205250-04, 8205250-08, or 8205250-16. No specific codes, UPC codes, or expirations dates are found on the label.
No known illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this product. The recall was initiated by the trail mix manufacturer, Glory Bee Foods Inc., after it was determined that the peanut product received was manufactured by Peanut Corporation of America. Natural Selection has informed FDA of its actions and is fully cooperating with the Agency.
