FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- ELGIN, IL – April 2, 2009 – As a follow up to the voluntary recall of roasted shelled and inshell pistachios announced by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. on March 31, 2009, John B. Sanfilippo and Son, Inc. (Nasdaq: JBSS) announced today that it is expanding its voluntary recall of packaged items of Archer Farms Roasted Salted Inshell Pistachios, which are listed below, as a precautionary measure because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

To date, the Company has not received any confirmed reports of illnesses in connection with the items listed below.

Consumers who have recently purchased the items listed below should not consume this product and should return it to the store of purchase for a full refund or replacement.

Salmonella 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, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website at www.cdc.gov.

Item Description: The following packaged items have been distributed nationwide under the Archer Farms Brand exclusively in Target retail stores.
