Perry's Ice Cream Company Adds Products to Voluntary Recall of Select Peanut Butter Ice Cream Products as a result of PCA Expanded Recall
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Buffalo, N.Y. – January 30, 2009 – Perry’s Ice Cream today announced an update to their January 17, 2009 and January 22, 2009 voluntary recalls of select ice cream products containing peanut butter because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. The ice cream products added to the previous list contain Spanish peanuts and granulated peanuts supplied by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA). The action was taken immediately after PCA issued an expanded recall of all product manufactured in their Blakely, Georgia facility since Jan 1, 2007. PCA is the subject of an FDA investigation concerning recent Salmonella outbreaks.
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. For more information on Salmonella, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Website at http://www.cdc.gov.
