FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - December 18, 2009 - Parker, Colorado – Mountain Man Nut & Fruit Co. is voluntarily recalling select products containing shelled hazelnuts (filberts).

Mountain Man is initiating this recall in conjunction with the recall from Kunze Fams due to the fact that raw hazelnuts could have been exposed to salmonella and become contaminated. During routine inspection of the hazelnut shelling facility one salmonella test came back positive. In the interest of the safety of our customers, Mountain Man is requesting that customers return any of the lot codes below to their place of purchase for replacement or refund.

Mountain Man has not received any complaints of consumer illness associated with these products. This is strictly a precautionary recall to insure the safety of our customers.

About Salmonella 

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and other 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.
