FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 24, 2012 - Sartori Inspirations, LLC, is initiating a voluntary recall of a small number of Ciolo branded products distributed to some Whole Foods Market stores. The items may contain onions from Gills Onions, which may have been contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

This recall comes as a result of a July 18th, 2012, recall issued by Gills Onions, Oxnard, CA, a supplier of onions to Sartori Inspirations, LLC.  The Gills Onions recall was initiated when the firm was notified by the FDA that a random sample of their diced yellow onions taken at retail tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes

The products included in this recall are tapenades, goudas, cheeses, and salsas which are packaged in 7 oz. clear plastic containers and 5 lb. white plastic tubs.  Code identification listed in the following table represents all product effected by this recall.  The code information can be located on the side of each container.  No other Sartori Inspirations, LLC, products are affected by this recall.
