510-567-1200
 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 12, 2012 - Creative Energy Foods, Inc. (CEF) is voluntarily recalling Crunch® thinkThin nutrition bars which may contain blanched roasted peanuts supplied by Sunland , Inc. to CEF. The decision was made as the result of the expanded recall of peanut butter, nut butters and peanut products by Sunland because of potential contamination with Salmonella.

Salmonella bacteria 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 cramps. Consumers with the above symptoms should consult their physician. 

While no illnesses associated with any of these products have been reported to date, as part of our commitment to the safety and quality of our products we have decided to issue a voluntary recall.

Consumers who have any products covered by this recall should dispose of them.   Consumers who have any questions about the recalled products are urged to contact CEF Monday through Friday, 8:00AM – 4:30PM Pacific Time at 510-567-1200, extension #1.  Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their doctor or health care provider.

The Best-By-Dates for the recalled products are listed below and can be found on the back of the package, underneath the seal. 

These products were distributed at retail chain stores nation wide from March 2010 to October 12, 2012.
