FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Stratford, CT (April 13, 2009) – Aurora Products, Inc. today announced a voluntary nationwide recall of certain pistachio products produced under the Aurora Natural brand, Private Label brands listed below and various Private Label brands that indicate they are packed by or distributed by Aurora Products, Inc. that are not listed below. The Best If Used By dates are listed below. This voluntary recall was initiated because the products contain pistachios which were sourced from Setton International of Commack, NY and may possibly be contaminated with Salmonella. This possible contamination is not connected with the recent outbreak associated with peanuts and no illness has been reported.

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 Web site at www.cdc.gov (or call 1-800-232-4636).

Products were distributed nationally in the USA and in Bermuda.

We are communicating with all of the warehouses and stores that have received the products listed below. They have been instructed to cease distribution of these products and remove them from the store shelves. The product should be documented and destroyed. Consumers that have the listed products may return them to the point of purchase for refund and may contact Aurora Products, Inc. with questions at (800) 898 – 1048 between the hours of Monday – Friday between 9:00AM to 5:00 PM EST
