FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- February 27, 2009 -- Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. of Tillamook, Oregon is voluntarily expanding its recall of a variety of Trail Mixes and Peanut items, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. These products were manufactured using peanuts recalled by Peanut Corporation of American because they have 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.

These products were distributed to retail stores nationwide.

The following is a list of the product names UPC numbers best by dates and lot numbers of the products affected by this expanded recall. The UPC number is on the back of the package near the top on the right. The best by date or lot number is on the front of the package near the bottom. These products are packaged in clear film packages with a label that reads “Werner Gourmet Snacks” at the top of the package and come in a variety of net weights ranging from 3 to 9 ounces.
