FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Solon, OH (April 7, 2009) - Kanan Enterprises announces the voluntary recall of Red Pistachios and Garlic & Onion Pistachios in-shell due to potential contamination with salmonella as a follow up to the voluntary recall of these pistachios announced by Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. on April 6, 2009. ALL OTHER PISTACHIOS ARE NOT AFFECTED; NOR ARE ANY OF OUR OTHER PRODUCTS.

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

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.

The products have been distributed nationwide. A list of affected products and code dates is listed below:
