Michael Valentine, CFO (847) 214-4509

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - March 19, 2010 - Elgin, IL - As a follow up to the voluntary recall of black pepper from Mincing Overseas Spice Company announced on March 5, 2010, John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc. (Nasdaq: JBSS) (the "Company") announced today that it is voluntarily recalling various snack mix and cashew products, which have been flavored with seasoning containing the recalled black pepper and which are listed below, as a precautionary measure because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella.

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

Consumers who have recently purchased the items listed below should not consume these products and should return them 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.
