Fairytale Brownies Voluntarily Recalls Peanut Butter Brownies and Cookies Due to Possible Health Risk




FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 28, 2012 - Out of the utmost care and concern for our customers, Fairytale Brownies has decided to voluntarily recall peanut butter brownies and cookies identified with the lot codes shown below. The products were distributed primarily through our mail-order channel as well as some retail outlets. This decision is based on a recall initiated on September 24, 2012 by peanut butter manufacturer Sunland, Inc. of Portales, NM. Fairytale Brownies purchased all-natural peanut butter from Sunland, Inc. and used the product for a short period of time from August 15, 2012 through the date of the recall.

Sunland, Inc. initiated the voluntary recall because certain products may have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, 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, 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, endocarditis and arthritis. Fairytale Brownies products have not been associated with any illness to date and no other Fairytale Brownies products are being recalled at this time.

Fairytale Brownies is committed to producing only the highest quality products, and our top priority is the safety of our customers. As an extraordinary precaution we are asking anyone who is in possession of Peanut Butter Brownies, Sprites or Cookies with the lot codes shown below to discard the product. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact our Customer Service Team at 800-531-5209. We are available from 6:00 am - 5:00 pm PST Monday - Friday.
