FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- LANCASTER COUNTY, PA (January 30, 2009) – Turkey Hill Dairy of Lancaster County, PA, is voluntarily recalling six select ice cream and frozen yogurt items because the products contain ingredients that have been voluntarily recalled by our suppliers.

Turkey Hill’s recalled products contain peanut pieces sold by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), the current focus of an ongoing Salmonella investigation by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA). On January 28, the FDA expanded its investigation to include all peanuts processed by the PCA at its plant in Blakely, GA, since January 1, 2007, including dry and oil-roasted peanuts, granulated peanuts and peanut meal, in addition to peanut butter and peanut paste, which were the initial focus of the investigation.

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.

This recall does NOT include any Turkey Hill products including peanut butter. Turkey Hill products do not include any peanut butter or peanut paste produced by the Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), the initial focus of the FDA’s investigation.

Turkey Hill is voluntarily recalling six items following the FDA’s expanded investigation. These products have been distributed to grocery, food and convenience stores in Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, DC and West Virginia.
