FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — May 15, 2015 — Orange, CT — Aurora Products, Inc. is conducting a voluntary recall of RAW MACADAMIA NUTS packaged under the Aurora brand label and various Store brand labels. Products are being recalled because they have the potential to contain Salmonella 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.

The product being recalled was distributed to retail stores in: CT, DC, DE, KY, MA, MD, ME, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VA, WV.

The affected product listed below was produced by Aurora Products, Inc. The potential for contamination was noted after routine testing by an outside company contracted by the FDA revealed the presence of Salmonella in one retail container of Raw Macadamia product.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

Aurora is communicating with stores that have received the affected products. Stores are being instructed to cease distribution of this product and to remove it from the store shelves.

Consumers that have the product listed below are urged to not eat it and destroy the product or return it to the point of purchase. Customers with questions can contact Aurora Products, Inc. for further information at (800)-898-1048 between the hours of 9:00AM to 5:00 PM EST Monday – Friday.
