Cherrydale Manufacturing LLC Recalls Bartons, Cherrydale Farms and Haddington Farms Products That Contain Peanuts Because of Possible Health Risk

Richard Toltzis

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- January 30, 2009 -- Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) has voluntarily expanded the recall of all peanuts and peanut products produced at their Blakely, Georgia facility since January 1, 2007.

Cherrydale Manufacturing LLC is acting out of an abundance of caution to voluntarily recall all products manufactured at their facility using peanut products from PCA since January 1, 2007, because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

This includes their Bartons, Cherrydale Farms and Haddington Farms brand products.  These brands of products were distributed throughout the United States and Canada through retail stores, school fundraisers, catalog and internet sales, and direct delivery. The Lot Codes being recalled are 1H001 through 3H365, 1J001 through 3J365, and 1K001 through 3K029.  Specific products impacted by the recall were produced on or after Jan 1, 2007.

Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Clusters 1.7 oz

This precautionary measure was taken as a result of the recently-expanded recall by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA) to include all peanut ingredients produced in their Blakely, Georgia facility.  None of the recalled products have been directly linked to the Salmonella outbreak, and there have been no illnesses reported.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections, particularly in young children, the elderly, and persons with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and/or 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.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled products are urged to destroy the product. Consumers with questions may contact Consumer Service at 1-800-289-4525 between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday through Friday.  Consumers with questions or concerns about their health should contact their doctor.
