FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 16, 2012 - Torn and Glasser, Inc of Los Angeles, CA 90021 is voluntarily recalling Salted in-shell product (packaged after November 9, 2011), and one lot of Organic Peanut Butter (packaged January 13, 2012) because it has 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 (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.

This decision to recall was made due to the expanded recall of peanut products by Sunland (to include Salted in-shell, and Organic peanuts) due to the potential of contamination with Salmonella. The Torn and Glasser recalled products contain peanuts supplied by the Sunland Peanut Processing Plant located in Portales, New Mexico.

The recalled product was distributed from November 9, 2011 to October 15, 2012 in CA, AZ, NV, TX, CO, ID, MO, NJ, NM, OK, UT.
