"Although we have not received a single health related complaint or any reports of illness related to this product, we are taking this voluntary precautionary action out of an abundance of caution and consistent with our 80-year unwavering commitment to consumer safety and to providing the highest-quality products," said Mike Weaver, Weaver Popcorn Company President and CEO.

Since the vast majority of this product has not been sold for a number of months, it is assumed that what has been sold has been consumed. Consumers who have open bags of this product are urged to destroy it. Consumers with an unopened Trail's End 12 oz. (340g) Chocolatey Peanut Clusters foil bag, with the above listed code dates, can arrange for a refund by calling 1-800-782-4255 (Monday through Friday from 8:00am – 3:00pm EST).

*** 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, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, 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.
